    I had a W140 S280 years ago, downgraded (that's the way I saw it) to a used W220 S320 that turned out to be a bit of a lemon, and have been through plenty of contemporary cars since (mainly company cars) including Volvo XC90, Ford Mondeo 2ltr estate Titanium X, Toyota milk float, Renault Megane lost roof, Skoda Octavia estate.

    For some reason, the urge to get back to some regal motoring overwhelmed me recently.

    Took a look at a few later 90s W140 S320, all private, and uniformly terrible.

    At first I ignored an older S500 from VIP Car Sales as just too silly. However, I went and looked last weekend, did a deal, and pick it up tomorrow. GULP.

    Hope my wallet can stand the fuel consumption, and the inevitable repairs (maybe a wire loom replacement early on).

    I am not at all mechanically minded, so will be completely dependent on a really great local mechanic and a few Mercedes specialists in the Midlands.
