depite the headaches I still cant resist a jag. Still have a 99Xk8.
I purchased the s500 from a friend so I have all records. the car now has 152k on it. It looks like new box at 70k. At 150K the dealer r&r the second as it was leaking. I thought w140 used same box as other MBs. I have seen some posts that reflect box wear around 70-100k. I was hoping for a bad steering column bush, but no such luck. I never had much luck with used parts. I found it to be to much of a crap shoot. Maybe if there was a way to know how many miles where on it I got for it.
