Hi all,
Fortunate enough to have found a spanking E500 with only 49K miles.
One minor point. Once engine reaches operational temp (appears to be 90F, +- depending upon ambient conditions), there seems to considerable (at least considerable compared to my 94 E420) engine vibes. MB tech said that mounts were not leaking. Operationally engine is fine, just these vibes. Is it time to change mounts?
Thanks in advance

Leaking engine mounts?!?? There should be a 13 mm (about a 1/2 inch) gap between the mount frame and the chassis. You can check this with a ruler and a flashlight. If it's lower than this then your mounts are probably gone.
Go here for further details

If its not this then you may have another problem.

500Es/E500s are tough on motor mounts. 354 lb/ft of torque will do that. Just replaced both of mine and they were cooked bad! Car's considerably smoother now. FYI I also replaced my tranny mount.
