When I got it, it had about 126k ... I am now up to 140 in my roughly two years of ownership. Engine still purrs smooth, doesn't leak a drop, and burns nothing!

Another 15k and it'll be time to wear the 155k badge proudly!

Long live the W140

I plan to run mine to a million if it'll make it :D

Congrates. Mine reached 200k KM last Saturday night. Lots of overhaul done(Gearbox transmission ,wheels bearing ,Engine parts etc) :D

Got it around 2002 when it's only around 30k KM . Import it used from Singapore.

Congrats, I thought you had to get rid of it once you hit the mileage equal to the chassis, which is why I bought the 210. :rolleyes:

However, at the rate you're going, it's going to take you 122 years to get to a million miles, you'll have to find a longer commute, dude. :eek:

Take care and (continue to) enjoy the ride,
Greg

SPM Indeed! Sometimes while driving it just puts a smile on my face when I remember I'm driving one of the finest cars on the planet! When I remember the amount of R&D and quality engineering that went into these cars, it always makes me proud to own one.

We don't all simply own a 'car' with four wheels that gets us from A to B, we own a Mercedes-Benz S-Class! An engineering marvel! These cars are still years ahead in engineering than brand new cars of most every manufacturer. That's certainly something to be said. :bowdown:

We could start a new Religion, but what would we call it??

S tianity :bowdown::bowdown:

Seriously though, They really are the best cars in the world bar none and even today, manufacturers are playing catch up to its sheer Magesty!

Let us all basque in the glory of the 'S'

All the very best,

Chris.:thumbsup:
