    Hi all

    2007 S600L w221 186,000Km third MB started with C200 then E350 but after spine op found the ride too harsh. The 600 was bought some three years ago with 84K on the odo. Put on another 100K great for very long distance driving over here. Such comfortable seats and the massage function helps those long distances glide by.

    Back country roads are usually reasonable for the posted speed limit (110 ) but sometimes it gets a bit hairy as the road turns to gravel or as recent travel up to Queensland, just muddy.

    Servicing done by a local specialist MB shop ( not a dealer as sadly the costs are inflated ) Most parts can be had here but sometimes the US provides the better option - Ignition coil packs quoted here by MB were $8,000 each - rebuilt V12 packs from US were $1,200....enough said
