I'm thinking of buying a W140 to go with my current W124
I've been told (by non W140 owners) that the wiring can be a problem in the earlier models .. is this true?
and are there any other problems to look out for?
I'm looking at 91-95 320 or 500 ... any advice for this W124 driver would be all good [:)] ... thanks

that's cool ... I'm a huge fan of Benz V8s (use to have an 83 500SEL) so I think I'd go for a 500. We have heaps in New Zealand that have been imported from Japan and Singapore. You can pick up a mint 94 S320 with 70 000 kms for under US$8k. How much are they in other parts of the world?

In Canada, it would cost about $18000CAN (or $13500US). W140s are CHEAP in NZ!

Any idea how much it costs to ship cars over to Canada from New Zealand? I could practically buy three Benzes there for the price of one here [xx(]

That's actually what we did. We bought a '93 300SE with just some minor damage to the rear for $14500CAN ($10800US). It only has 38000 kms on it, and still looks brand new (minus the damage, of course [8)])

We should get it late this week or early next week. I can't wait!
