Having owned a 1995 S600, I relinquished it when the warranty period was up. Deciding the new S-Klasse was no big deal at the time (2002/3), I bought other vehicles. The new S-Klasse was simply too 'small' when compared to the W140 bodystyle.
Having decided I missed the big bulkiness and smooth & quiet ride of the 'old' S-Klasse, I was interested when I came across a 1999 version of what I had previously owned.
And now I'm back in the fold! Terrific that my old car cover fits, extra 'gear' I had in the 1995 version still works and I'm looking forward to taking this 1999 version to task!
Anybody have a similar experience, reviewing the 'new' S-Klasses versus the W140 bodystyle, and finding the older style wins out?
