Who owns that bad-ass S600? Do you have any info on the motor? What a monster & thanks for the pics!


Edit:
Oh ok, that car is owned by "Oxygen". I've seen his posts at MBWorld...
If you do come out here, Ted, we'll have another get together in your honor and you can show that bad boy off.

Right now my car only needs brake pads. However, it will need spark plugs and a few other items in the next 10k miles. It's about 500 miles from 60k.

I'll letcha know!!

Didn't realize this, but he's apparently the fastest MB overall as well.

Wow, those are some fast E55's.

I wonder how many of those cars are bone stock?

See if you can't dig up some details. All the cars on that list are pretty fast out of the box, but making a NA diesel run with tuned CL65's and S600's is something. He must have a Myna pump on that car and some pretty trick stuff.

Sometimes I wonder if everyone on this forum is over exaggerating when it comes to reliability...I mean, almost all of us are used to the unusually reliable W123/6 diesels...so basically ANY other car would be labeled "expensive and unreliable" in comparison. amirite??

I owned my 1993 S420 for a while, and there was never really any weirdness, nothing broke while I owned it, and I put close to 10k miles on it. The door close assist never worked properly and the Bose amp needed to be replaced, but that's it. Everything else on that car worked perfectly, and it felt great to drive, even with 160k miles. That's the newest MB I've ever owned though, so I can't really comment in the 03+ S600's...but I really don't think that a car that cost so much new would be as unreliable and crappy as so many on this site would have you believe.

I guess I just don't rate. Looking forward to seeing what my 600SL will do.

High price doesn't mean it'll be any more reliable, usually the opposite.
