I have always thought of a 2004 S600 to be a possible option to get as a daily and replace my W140. When I found a person in Minneapolis area advertising a 2004 or 2003 (both were in the listing) AMG S600 I had to contact the guy to see what else was a misprint. After sending 2 emails requesting the VIN to verify anything about the car I realized answering with a 3rd would be my last waste of time on he subject.
It's fascinating to me how many people, in the age of information, still attempt to peddle in balderdash.
Thank you for the reply! And good advice as well as looking out! I think I jumped the gun in one way and not another on that last car I was looking at. I did the VIN check and it was indeed a "AMG" body kit and wheels on the build. However and in my defense the seller was not initially giving of the VIN so I didn't have a way to check it initially. To bad. it seems to be gone. Great price for that one too. Oh well. I'm looking at this monster now!!!@unavita, if you can find one with good bones, an S600 TT from 2003 to 2006 would be a very good choice, indeed. Mine is a 2003 and is absolutely wonderful to drive. Both my fiance' and I are seduced by it; she calls it, "sex on wheels". It would do you very, very well to get a STAR Diagnostic System.
The S600's (and rarely, S65 AMG's) do come up occasionally. Just keep your eyes open. Actually, BenzWorld member @amstel78 is selling his 2006 S65 AMG (a real one, no balderdash), with relatively low miles on it. The car looks like it's in great condition, too. Here's his thread.
Worth talking with him about it as he's detailed what he's done with his car here on a few BenzWorld threads. Only reason I haven't seriously talked with him about purchase is because I have the S600 TT already.
