S55 Amg — This car is absolutely breathtaking. Acceleration is lightning fast, and almost too comfortable. The handling in sport mode feels just how a sports sedan should- nimble and tight. The brakes are probably the most impressive performance attribute, they stop quicker than you should ever have to. The car is built very solid; I was rear ended by a camry going 25 mph and the bumper was only bent. The car completely absorbed the shock of the crash. The sleek lines of the amg styling are gorgeous and get looks all over town. The cars two downfalls are gas milage (about 12 mpg, 10 for spirited drivers), and the smoothness. You may ask how could smoothness be a downfall? Well, during times of rapid acceleration, you gain too great a confidence from the ride and lose your sense of speed, which is kind of scary. Bottom line, this car is a hoot.

This Feels Like A Jet Plane About To Take Off When You Step On It... — The S600 is a very unique car. Twelve Cylinders with Two Turbos and a Fast Shifting Transmission is a killer combination. The leg room inside is perfect. Front and Back Seats are very comfortable. If you plan on buying one, make sure you set a budget aside each month for potential costly repair/maintenance schedules.

Mercedes-benz 2004 S500 Sedan — One of the best rides and built cars I have ever owned. The ride is so smooth and comforatable that many times you do not know how fast you are going until you look at speedometer. There is a sport setting and comfort setting.

Extremely Attractive And Fun To Drive — Awesome vehicle to drive. Everything works properly on vehicle. Well kept. Garage parked. All the eminities of the S500 are included on the S430. Great for city driving and country touring. Main purpose was daily driving from home to work. Always reliable.

The Perfect Car — The engine is great - 320 CDI have 210 h.p. (on paper this is insufficiently for this heavy car, but in real is more than enought) 0-100km/h for 7.4sec (but don't forget - this is not sports car, this is limousine ;)) The breaks are just perfect The exterior is stylish and when you go inside you can say "welcome home" - the luxury is everywhere, cosily and comfortably. This is the perfect car - but it is property of my father and i drive it just sometimes :|

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

W220 S600 Designo V12 Biturbo — Fast (check), Luxurious (check), Safe (check) High quality (check), Exclusive (check). It is hard to find any other sedan available in the US that can rival this car, in fact it hard to find ANY car in the US that rivals this car overall. I have the Coupe version as well and prefer the Sedan for its higher comfort factor over any marginal gains the lighter, shorter coupe version might provide. Unfortunately, this car wasn't cheap to purchase, and maintenance costs are not inexpensive if kept by the book as I do, but nobody should be surprised about this, at the end of the day its a trade-off I am willing to accept.
