I own a 1992 400SE (w140) and need some opinions on 560SEC. I owned a 1985 500SEC back in 1992, wish i never sold it. What years are highly regarded on the 560SEC and what should i look for as common issues. Owning a W140 body i have learned what years are peticular with issues, do the W126 have similiar issues with certain years. I am looking to buy a 560SEC or 500SEC. Thanks!

ditto on the MBCoupes.com buyers guide and I've PM'd you my cell number if you would like to discuss. I've owned my SEC for ten years and worked on a couple dozen of them.

The 560SEC is a world-class GT car and is an amazing vehicle, but I'm VERY prejudiced. :)

FYI, a friend of mine has three SECs for sale in the LA area (owns five of them, has his eye on another one). No affiliation, etc.
