S 500- What to look for??

I am interested in buying a 95 S 500 with 109,000 miles. What should I look for? What kind problems do the S 500 have and what should I be aware of. It will be great if somebody can get me the carfax report on this car. The vin number is WDBGA51E7SA258935 . My email address is alseim@hotmail.com.

I currently have 91 560 SEL and thinking I need an upgrade. Is the S500 a better overall car? I test drove it today and everything looks good.

Thanks in advance for you help.

Thanks
P.S I corrected the Vin Number in case someone is going to check it for me.

S 500 What to look for?

No replies yet!! Any help will be greatly appreciated. I am just wondering if the difference in two cars is worth the change and the extra money.


Thanks

Last month, I did a carfax for a couple of people. They didn't even say "Thank you". Good luck

caster bushings, evap, blower regulator, c/a issues, EA or E gas issues, posible DM problems. Future things include, cly head air pump port clogging, timing chain and or guides, oil tubes for the cams, r/h valve cover vent tube to the EA.

S 500

Thanks for all of the help. Using the search option at this web site I got a lot of useful information. It seems to me, from what I read, the car have a high maintance cost when compared to the W 126. Fruthermore the survey comparing the W126 vs W140, the W126 was head. Once again thank you all. You are all great.
