to find anything in archives, anything I should look out for?
Will be using this car for commute, my friend has s500 and I like it alot but I want the 1995 or 1994 diesel version. Is there a source for comprehensive info on these cars, specs and so on?
Appreciate any input!

ED, Be very careful of these 350 turbodiesel engines. They have a bad reputation on bending connecting rods. You will be $8-12000. into a new engine if that happens.

The gang at, have the whole story on it as a few of them have had it happen to them. They will tell you what the story is and how to buy a good car and not a money-pit.

They are a beuatiful car butI changed my mind and am looking for a nice V12 S600. That's another story in itself, the V12's are really what the W140 should have.

Good Luck

The S500 that I have is more than adequate. Not to trash the S600..they're good cars, but the S500 is nice too
