BUY A S600 COUPE

The MB V12 120 engine if properly maintained should last for 250K before major work.. I only know of ONE failure..due to the timing chain breaking.. I put that down to poor maintenance and lack of knowledge.. with regular oil and filter changes and the proper attention to the ancillaries .. I can honestly say that in my opinion the engine has the strongest heart, and longest legs and deepest lungs of any car I have ever driven..
However...
I might just be a little bit bias..so I ask the other guys who have V12's on here..to give you their opinions..
I think you should go for the 600 Coupe..and enjoy...

I have traded my 97 S500 to the 97 S600, some said I am crazy coz they dont understand why i trade for a same year and body style car... some said about the gas and maintanence cost for the S600...

I just love S600, and I hope the 97 will be more realible.
