New 2003 S430

Just took delivery of my first W220 chassis car last Friday. Picked it up from the original owner in Houston and drove it back to Tampa that day. 1024 miles at 27 mpg and loved every minute of it. 96k, full records, dealer maintained, etc. Really nice car, far more complex than any previous Mercedes I've owned. Looking forward to spending time in the forum learning as much as I can about these cars.

You can see a few of it's stablemates in the background...

Update - Fix Inner Rear Rub Points

New Update of some pics...sitting a bit better...still chasing vibrations ..

had tran/engine mounts done, had both flex disks done, had all wheels force balanced (waste of money), had rear wheel balanced again as road force had +110 result.

Need to checkoff 1000 more things in the hunt...starting next with front wheel balance then steering links

Why thank you Warren. This brings it to 4 Mercs I now work on and maintain, the others 2 being yawn190's S500 and his ML320.

I took my wife to the airport this morning, and parked my black W221 across from a nicely kept black W220. I still think the W220 is a gorgeous body, a classic style. And it confirms my personal belief that an S-Class should be black. :wink
