That is a great example of a 6.9 Bryce.
A little saggy in the bum, but how good is that interior!
Boy, they sure are busy under the bonnet.

I agree with you Brian, I donít mind the look of this car, which is why I would like to go check it out.
Though not impressed with the grey interior
Be a nice drive for the S430.
Leanne is happy to go also, as there is one of the best cake shops at Bowral, so she was all in on the drive

The S430 is the first car I have driven with double glazing Motec, you are spot in, very quiet indeed.

Yes range was 35 to 45k and as stated passed in . But the last 2 as everyone knows one went for 64k and the next one was 25k but it really wasn't a nice example. This one currently on Carsales in W.A is a nice one. But I know the car and owner. I also know who painted it and they are considered the painter in Perth. Oh and it also has new GAHH leather interior https://www.carsales.com.au/cars/det...-5229453?Cr=15

Ant and Patrick the one I posted from Carsales belongs to the same individual as this 6.9 and both were painted by same painter https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-OGlV6WcquU

Gents,
I went and checked out the W140 S600 today.

I have to say, this is a nice car.
Interior an easy 9/10
Exterior 8.5/10
Under bonnet 9.5/10
Boot interior, tools and spare 4/10
Log books still in it, been very well maintained.
Amazing triple seal door rubbers and double glazing.
Glass sun roof has a slight issue.

She runs sweet as a nut, but couldnít drive it today as no trade plate available.

She is a big car and visually huge compared to the W126 560SEL
Makes the W220 look like a C class.

I will be going back to drive it.

How did you enjoy the S280 Motec?

If I canít drive it extensively, I will walk away from it.

A drive around the block is just not going to cut it for such a complex car.

For the W140, many years (earlier in production) suffer from wiring harness problems. You'll want to make sure somebody else has replaced it. From memory it was through 96 but don't quote me on that.

Also A/C evaporators are problematic and the weight of the cars mean they go through front suspension components pretty quickly. ideally this has all been done.

Test plugs on wiring loom if supple in engine bay it means replaced with updated loom. And series 2 which is 96 onwards doesn't have bio loom or evap problems. Easy way to tell was more rounded bumpers 5 speed automatic same climate control on dash as W210 and post removed from rear quarters as now sensor fitted. Factory sound system is great and they are extremely quiet inside. More than any other S class.
