My '87 560SEL has 340k miles on it and the heads have never been off as far as I know. I'm the third owner. Both P.O. were very good about basic maintenance and the car shows it. Do the compression check, change the oil, keep after the chain and rails, drive it forever. Besides tune ups, only engine work I have done so far was replace the fuel injectors. Cured my hot start problem. Oh yeah, did have to replace the starter, but I consider that a basic wear item. Sorta like wiper blades, but lasts a lot longer.
