Hi, I am based in Lahore, Pakistan. I bought my S320 of 2000 few weeks ago. It says 100,000 kms on the clock. I sold my 730li 0f 2005 to buy this machine and thus save bucks. I drove 730LI for 2 years. No doubt the feeling of this s class is great especially the interior. The steering feels lot better than 730LI.

Since this S class machine is an older model and already run for about 100,000kms i am curious to know how many kms more it can run for easily if well maintained.

Thankyou.

Welcome to Benzworld and 200k is not unusual but the question should be what repairs will be needed to reach this sort of mileage.

Thanks Eric. Yes I spent about $3500 in last 4 weeks on suspension, oils, mounts etc. And now the tires and rims need to be replaced along with discs and pads and spring loaded loaded arms. This means another $5 to 6k to be spent on it. Then there is another option of buying 2004 s320 cdi which is 145,000 kms. And now deciding what to do...keeping this older s320 or 2004 s320 cdi but still couldnt decide. This diesel one is used in uk only and arrived in my city in 2008 but according to the dealer has not been used locally.

I cannot speak for the Diesel side as we are only just begining to see them in China. The Chinese prefer petrol versions. But Diesel engines last much longer before a rebuild job is required.
