#407 of 2088 S-Class Quality
Mar 18, 2001 (11:36 pm)
First the bad news. Yes, the quality has gone done. Compared to the old W140 S-Class the new car is a fly weight. However the Mercedes feel and experience (thankfully) is still there, just not as much of it as before. That's the way I look at it. It's only alarming if you get a chance to examine a 1999 S side by side with a 2000 or 2001 S, then you might get worried. I hope Mercedes is listening to the general feeling being expressed about their latest cars like the new S and C. Audi is going to have this interior thing all sewn up if Mercedes doesn't reverse this trend.

I think you are fortunate with the S600. From what I have seen, the S600 because it has the extra leather throughout the interior, and it is also the exclusiv leather, better aroma and feel, I don't think it is as noticeable that the car feels decontented.

No problem posting the pictures, but I could not pull them up. Hope to hear from you soon. I have a whole lot of questions.

I agree with the article, but you have to remember that MBZ cut the cost of this car by more than $10K. If you demand the extras, you can get them in the Designo edition or S600. I personally had rather save the $10K instead of having some of the thrills that you never use. I think fit and finish are superb on my '01 S500. Couldn't be happier...

Has anyone fitted 19 inch wheels on their S Class? Can anyone compare ride and noise to an 18 inch wheel? Does the airmatic suspension offset some of the otherwise expected harshness in ride comfort. This is for a Brabus V wheel.

I have read the post on March 18, but still do not understand. I do not understand the what, where, and the how and especially, using this coding, but replace the (and) with < and >. Please explain, and by the way I'm pretty smart. This is all new to me!! Thanks
P.S. Should I have a folder and an album or both or what?
#416 of 2088 Exclusive Leather

You know I was thinking, what do they mean by Exclusive Nappa leather. The salesman kept talking about it but I didn't really think much of it. Now I am curious, does it meant that is the extra leather on the dash and seats, or is it a special type?
