Guys

Im looking for a W140 Mercedes S Class . It should either be an S500 V8 or S600 V12. Car should be in good condition and preferably from Mumbai itself. Anyone having leads, please let me know.

Thanks

There was a turquoise S600 on ebay india this morning. Seems to have disappeared. 1995 model. Asking 19 L, highest bids was around 9L. Keep an eye out, it might relist again.

Dippy, You probably know this already but:

1. Avoid the S600 - That V12 is a nightmare to maintain.

2. Look at post 1996 cars. The previous years had too many unsorted electronic issues.

3. Call Auto Hangar / Sanghi : They always have a W140 or two for sale.

Bargain hard on the price. W140s dont exactly move the market, and owners are most eager to sell.

But it is showing symptoms of lack of use - electrical gremlins. Speedo replaced (that is scary)

Mods, please excuse this Off topic post.
After driving a Ferrari, Dippy is looking for a MB V12. Great going.
All the best.
Only similarity will be, both the cars drink nearly the same amount of fuel.
