I know I have not posted on here for a long time, but I thought that I would share my new daily wheels...
it’s a 2003, 53 (Facelift) S500 L (long wheel base)
just ticked over to 180,364 miles (I got it at 179,220 miles)
What a car, it is NOT greedy on fuel despite everyone telling me before I got it that it would be, it’s not.
5.0 V8, 306bhp 7 speed Auto.
its seriously lovely, riding on the airmatic suspension.
barely above idle speed at 80mph & for it’s size, it’s seriously quick when it is needed.
Also, the silence inside is amazing, you can barely hear any noise, it’s so silent & insulated from the outside world.
Yes, I know that most people will tell me about the horrors of the W220 Mercedes-Benz S Class, but this is a good one, no rust or rot (early examples up until 2002 were notoriously bad for rot everywhere) the 2003 facelift model onwards were not as bad.
& my one is not blighted with any rot.
Here it is, after being fully valeted today.
