Perhaps I should start my own business, importing PSE-pumps for W140s hehe
Parts for these cars are just ridiculously expensive here in Norway. A pair of windscreen wipers will set you back around $350 at the dealer, and they don´t come much cheaper from other stores either...
Oh well, if you compare the part prices to the price of the cars when they were new, it´s not that bad. In ´94, the cheapest W140 was the S280 at around 1.140.000,- NOK, or roughly $190000, while the S600 L costed around 2.570.000,- NOK, or $429000. Keep in mind that the value of a krone (or a dollar) was quite a bit higher 16 years ago than today, as well.
Just glad I don´t live in Denmark (I´m half danish
) - Mercedes have some really sick prices there!
