Yes: I saw that too. I also saw the claim that it is reduced from $30K.
Is a bottle of snake oil included?

If the 2005 has the bi-turbo engine then the coil packs for these are in one unit per side and cost more than USD $1500. Its a known issue with these engines.

Brabus 6.9 litre - W140

This time some more reasonably useful information, but on the much maligned W140 series S Class. The author makes it very clear that these are quite complex and expensive Motor Cars to maintain. Incidentally, the link to BaT (?) is provided by Lucas from whom we have not heard for a long time. I wonder how he is getting on in this world ? Perhaps someone knows. Regards Styria

This seems interesting.
The owner states it will only cost around $1500.00 for some work for a full and healthy pink slip.
New brakes and a few other things done already.
He doesnít know if any timing chain work has been done.

This is very rare in this condition and kís.
Seems a bit pricy, but I guess that is whatís happening to Holden prices as we speak.

I would put this in my garage, but not at this price.

now, as I mentioned before, how do I buy my FB Special back?

That kingswood has hardly been used.
Still, it doesn't seem that long ago that you could pick up a decent (not this low mileage) Kingswood for next to nothing! they have really gone up in price in the last 10 years.

On that w116, if it really is rust free could be a good buy. The problem is that sellers claim these things and then you go and see the car and there are rust holes the size of your fist in the floors!

Most Kingswoodís Iíve seen over the last few years Bryce, are either rusted out, or completely worn out.
This is extremely rare, and boy Iíve looked at a few Holdens over the last few years.

The 450 owner is extremely poor with communication, so I will wipe it based on his efforts to actually sell his own car.

Oh picky, picky. It's nearly my bed time...

Gents,

Does anybody know anything about this 450?

It was advertised some time ago in the Burwood area.
I sent a link back then, and he had quite a few unusual cars in the factory unit the pics were taken.

No but it seems to have been for sale for many months.
i suspect this is because its priced as a car that is ok but the description says it needs work. No idea what that work is.
Looks nice though.

Are you interested in adding a W116 to the stable Patrick? As you've had a W126 and W220 it would be another S class to tick off the list!
