I recently aquired a 2002 s500 sedan. I have maintained the car personally for the previous owner. The car came with standard s500 options plus AMG sport package. I will take pictures of all the modifications this car will receive. It will get the following options

1 Tire pressure monitoring system
2 Rear Screen
3. Front Widescreen
4. Dynamic Orthopedic, vented, heated front AMG seats
5. Rear orthopedic, vented, heated, power, memory seats
6. Rear heater/ac
7. Parktronic
8. Distronic
9. Updated Interior
10. Updated headlamps and taillamps

I will post pics when i have them available shortly.

Why????? would you spend that kind of money? Hey its cool if you have a donor. But would it not be cheaper to buy a vehicle with those options? And will the wire harness accept those upgrades? That I am curious about. Go for it and good luck

I agree. Shop or no shop, that is still very expensive and you still have a pre face lifted W220 under it all. It makes zero sense to put that kind of money into an 02. If you were talking about an 05 or 06, then maybe.

I have had those parts sitting for quite some time waiting for a car so I got my 02 at a "steal" and decided to use it for this project. I will be posting pics as I upgrade the car.

that would be great I am curious for the car that does not come with a certain option can it be installed? Does the harness have the neccessary outlets? and do you have to enable via stardiag? Or do you have to modify,pull your hair out or sell your first born?

cars that do not have options do not also have the necessary harnesses in the car for those options. They must be added when adding the option. Programming via Star is necessary most of the time.

Sunman I want to bring my car down to Houston and leave it with you so you can do something spectacular to it!! I'm in Austin..

I don't know what I want though I already have a lot.. its an 04.. We talked about parktronic I think in the past I was thinking I couldn't do that to my car.
But I am still trying to get video without sacrificing my SAT radio... I'd love a front bumper that has the big holes in the bottom for the FOG lights.. like the Lorinzor..

It seems I need one more Killer Mod.. but I don't know which....

Are you talking about small rock-chip type Rust spots? I've got quite a few of those namely on the roof and I'm wondering if there's a way to get rid of them without re-painting the whole thing. I put some Touch Up paint over them which I found out I probably should have saved from doing.
