I purchased a 99 S 500 a little over 2 years ago. It had approx 14000 miles and had been used by the sales manager's wife. I paid $56000 but that included negotiations for a trade in on my 93 S 500 for which I got a reasonable amount. I have a XKR convertible as my everyday car and use the Mercedes when I need the space. Since 1999 was the last year of that model I felt it was going to be reliable and it has been. In a couple of years I will probably consider a 2003 or newer S500 when they get the bugs worked out.

1995 s420. The asr light came on in the middle of the road. I limped it home and took it for service. They 1st replaced the wiring harness for the accuator. Then the engine wiring harness. Then the air mass meter. Still not running right so they are thinking its the whole control module thats bad. Could that be? I would appreciate any help on this. I'm in dire straights over this. Help.
#1571 of 2088 price on a 2000 S-500

I'm looking at buying a one-owner 2000 S500 from a local guy. Great looking car, 29,000 miles and very good service history. It doesn;t have the rear sun-shade or integrated phone but its got most everything else. He's asking $45,000. I've done some research and this seems below most others on the market? Any thoughts on a what a good price is? thanks.

AutoBild has a CGI photo of the new S Class developed by spy photos and they claim inside sources. Take a look.

I haven't been in such a good mood lately---
my parents, and my best friend's house (known him since we were less than 1 year old)caught on fire during the fire-storm we had here in San Diego about 2 weeks ago. burn't to the ground. my parents forunately, recovered some valuable and personal belongings (including their wedding ring and pictures of their children (and me) when we were young. although they were reconsidering about rebuilding their house, i have decided that they should just move into ours. what a shame.
unfortunately, not the same to my friends house (Jason). he lost absolutely everything, including his beloved, recently-fully-restored Mini Cooper from '67, i believe. saw pictures of the car, and his now burnt lot. it is really emotional to see.
well, my a highly special object that my parents lost during the fire was their cherished '85 Mercedes 500SL. beautiful, in perfect condition.
i have determined to replace their MB with a new SL500.
as for Jason, he lost EVERYTHING except for his family (they are safe), and clothing. they had no time to retrieve anything as they were evacuated early in the morning.
some close buddies have decided to pitch in a purchase a new 2004 Mini Cooper for him. Red in color, just like his old one.
well, on the brighter side, our S430 is doing fine, although it seems to have a brain of it's own: the seat mysteriously adjusts itself by it self; when I leave in the day before, and come in the next day in the morning in the garage; either the headrest is fully up or the seat is all the way to the front. i don't understand this because i thought that the seat's don't have power if the ignition is out, and no one enters the garage at night... who knows- i hope one day, i don't find out that the car backed itself out of the garage one day!
as for the SL; she's a beauty!
