    I have a 1990 560sel. It was always a second car, and I've spent the last 4 years restoring it. Unfortunately she wasn't getting driven as much as she needed to be. So back in the fall I decided to make it my daily. I've gotten a lot more in tune with the car, and I've pushed myself to start...

    Apologies if this query has been previously addressed. I have a 560sel with rear sls suspension and a standard 500sel without sls. It bugs me that the 560sel has a couple of extra cm’s clearance extra between the wheel arch and its tire when compared to my 500sel. Question is whether the sls...

    ABS & ASR warning lights on as well alert in speedometer. First question: is the car necessarily in ":limp mode" when the triangular light is lit? The car reaches high speeds but not certain that it is running right. How can I confirm limp mode is active? Also, what is the diagnostic...

    hello, I have a problem with the suspension of the SEL 560 for a couple of months. From the back it hangs very low and from the front it just stands.
