Never been a huge fan of that gen of S-class.

Give me a W126 any day, much more satisfactory / elegant design.

In fact I was 'watching' this one furiously:

I love the W140, the soft close doors are cool aswell. But the w126 is also quality. Ideally id like a w140 s600 lol for v12 smoothness. But im also a big fan of the e32 750i too!!

Few minor niggles, but should be under 500 notes. Lovely. And an added bonus it isnt the obscene Long wheelbase version as most of these are.

TBH, the very thought of a 750i send me screaming like a girl to hide under a duvet.Doubtless very lovely when on form, but they all seem to be knackered in one way or other, and terminally un-DIY-able. I'll stick to my 6-potters, ta. (Non-nikasil-grenaded V8 would be Ok ;) )

I did like my E32 750iL - probably the most refined car I've ever driven, Lexus included. It was obscenely thirsty though - made the Lexus look like a Polo SDI - and there was the ever-present nagging knowledge that if anything went wrong there was no way in heck I was ever going to be able to fix it. And it wasn't really all that quick - the Saab 9000 Turbo I had at the time would leave it for dead up to the ton. I still miss it though - no other car I've driven has been as relaxed at 120mph. And no other car has had rear headrests that automatically raise themselves when you buckle the seatbelt. 8)

Quite. When I got my cards last year I contemplated a 328i Sport as a bit of a treat with the pay-off, but everything that was nice could also have been a nikasil time-bomb. So I fixed my E30 instead.

I have two of these at the moment, one like the above - 5litre 32v v8 and an S280.

The v8 is the smoothest car I've ever driven, and makes a great noise when floored, but it is nowhere near as fast as my old 560SEC. That was a beast - 300hp and an LSD... Would swap it back any time!

The S280 is my current daily drive (600 mile commute each week). It's a big old comfortable bus that returns 33mpg - pretty good for such a huge ride, but it is quite possibly the slowest car I've ever owned - Put your foot down, and it just make more noise. I've been out-dragged by a Kia Pride FCS!

But you are right Owain, they are definitely now shite. My mate Perm picked up a w140 S320 with LPG for £300 a few weeks ago, matt blacked it, slammed it over 19's and it looks ace - owes him less than a grand...

Shitting nora, that is class. It is far more suitable for me in all ways than that 1800, which I intend to A-frame from Andover to Crewe this weekend.

I thought you would like it. Maybe you should buy it as well. Seeing as it isn't that far from your weekday pied-a-terre. I'm tempted to dabble, if you'd come round with your 'hand pump' (fnar) and gas 'er up.

Put your foot down, and it just make more noise. I've been out-dragged by a Kia Pride FCS!

Kia Prides are actually bloody quick. I had a Mazda 121 (Pride shape) for a while as my daily and it used to regularly leave A4s, 3 series and Saxo VTRs choking on its exhaust fumes. 76lb/ft and the weight of an empty crisp packet made for a zippy drive. In the dry at least - when it was wet the 145R12 tyres were rather overwhelmed.
