Finally got it. The itch is being scratched and it feels great! Mid-90s German V8 S500. Build quality is incredible and the attention to detail is ridiculous. Absolutely love this car and has taken the stress out of driving. Now I have the Mille for hooning around donny and this Merc for lazy weekend bimbling. Happy chappy!!

It's fecking huge. You don't park it, you dock it. Super smooth though but it's quite thirsty. It'll do 22mpg combined 😕 but its not something you buy with economy in mind.

That's what I was expecting. This car is so refined that you can barely hear it. Almost no road noise or wind noise. Full double glazing makes it a relaxing ride.

2 Black out the rear n side windows.
3 Blue neons underneath.

I am going to do some light tinting on the back windows but I prefer the factory look over all. If I decide to keep it I'll get some 18" monoblocks for it and maybe update the head unit. It's too nice to butcher and it takes away from the sale price.

Trouble is when you get used to a big cube v8 everything else just seems sh*t so you will just have to keep buying them now👍.

The biggest problem I have now is keeping out of it! I've even been to quote some Plastering jobs in it today. Not too sure what impression it gives turning up to site in a motor like this!
