Thanks merce320.

I am very clear that upgrade will be only to a 600 v12. Nothing else.
There are close to 35 s600's w140 in the country, 30 of them are non working. So my money is only on the remaining 5 :-) just have to wait & watch.
In case you know the 36th s600 please let me know.

I would like to make this point to all the members who have PMed me asking about the maintenance of my 140. Trust me it has just been very easy.
Oil, oil filter & a few ware & tare parts hasn't costed me more then 30000 pa at the dealership.
So go ahead make your wish true. Get yourself a 140 & feel the real Mercedes.

Those last pics you uploaded of the 140 is simply mind blowing especially with those lovely alloys. I envy your friend for purchasing it. Do you have more interior pics of front and rear? But what about the spare parts availability? And didn't we have someone here who had a very tough time with his V12 140 series? Not sure if it has more electronics than the 320 but then again, you would know this better.

Cheeres on that Dracul. 2 S600's have made it to Kerala. 1 from DL & the other from mumbai,both non working condition. I am sure it wont be very difficult for you to find where in Kerala these cars are.
I was also told by a member here that there is a super clean LHD S600 in KL , She is green in color I was told.
All the Best

Thats the engine bay. My interior pics are huge files & not uploading. Let me reduce the size & update.

Sheer class

The W126 & 140 look stunning and are a breath of fresh air among today's excessively bulbous designs.

Nandishpal - Love your W140. Those wheels are so amazing and they are the best ever wheels that can go on a W140. A S600 badge at the back and a V12 badge on the C pillar would not look out of place on your car.

And the W126 with the Pentax - Amazing again!! Please upload more pics of all the 3 cars - the W123, W126 and the W140.

I hope you get hold of a good W140 S600. I believe Speedy bought an S600 a few years ago. Not heard of it in the recent years. You could check with him if he is selling his.

Wow, this is how a w126 should look. Very tastefully modified. Are those side skirts OE or fabricated?

arighna dutta thats a legit kit from AMG for the w126. The modification however is done by the current owner & kudos to him for pampering the car well.
