Yes, the 280S is hard to fault. There really is a strong following for the Ch. 108 and Ch.109 models by aficionados that wouldn't even look at a Ch. 116 car sideways. I know most people prefer the 280SE 3.5 but the 6 cylinder models give away very little in the desirability stakes. Regards Styria

I could just see Michel driving the chocolate brown 180B up and down the M7 to and from Prestonís.
He would be the whole time!

......and whatsmore, it is a really nice colour combination. It looks good, and when you think about it, this car represents a lot of car for little money as so many Mercedes Benzes are inclined to represent. A great pity. Regards Styria

I spoke with the seller via email today.

He said the only issue he was told by the repairer is the rear engine mount requires replacing.

He said the car drives well, and there are no intermittent issues or warning lights at all.

I think it just goes to show, the S Class are really a cut above the rest when it comes to quality of their build and longevity.

I really havenít seen any well maintained S Class give issues, but the lesser models especially those made in different countries seem to be problematic.

The 180B is still available

But,
If you want something a little different, here are some I have found of interest.

This low mileage 560SEC looks nice. Terrible ad though, no mention of sevice history or anything that would prove the low miles.

there are some signs like the needles on the instrument cluster still being orange and the interior that would make you think it might be true, but I would not pay top dollar unless the service book was present:

This E220 Coupe is unsual for an auction car in that it has a full service history.

https://www.graysonline.com/lot/0019...utomatic-coupe

the E220 is very economical, but I found the sedan version my dad had at one point rather sluggish. Love the colour, don't like the aftermarket chrome wheel arch trims.

Could this be the cheapest 500SL on the planet.
(Iíd love to show the seller that they CAN turn the phone on its side for a landscape shot)
