As an owner of an SL600 and a 99 S420, I can tell you the V12 engine is marvelous but it is almost impossible to have nothing less than $1000 repair job. The suspension of the 600 are all special order also. Also, not that many techs have much experience with the engine so they start replacing parts to fix an underlying problem. If you want a W140, you must get a 99 V8!! I wouldnt look at any non 97+ 140s regardless of the bargains. The 99 rear lights are just as regal as the previous edition lights.
