detachment from reality, waste of gas

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.

Style And Handling — Love the designo interior. For sure will look for this in the new car I buy. Just love the style and handling. Fuel consumption very reasonable. Occasionally something electronic gives out and requires an expensive repair. Love this car (in a line of 240z, 300zx, 911, 740i, XJ8 and now s500)

Pros

This car is a cruiser that changes into Ferrari mode with just a press of the foot

Cons

Only con is I didn't get the s55 amg

Excellent Everyday Driver. Very Nimble For Its Size — I love the respect that other s class drivers give you when they pass by. The s430 is ok bit if you are going to choose an engine, it would be the everlasting v8. Torque and horsepower cannot be beat. So smooth and silky quiet. Its almost scary.

Pros

this cabin is expansive. You could fit a small sheep back there... Plus 1 to hold it. Cavernous. Responsive and flat out elegant against any class of any year doesn't match this S500

Cons

I wish I had the AMG package but then that makes it look like a police attractor

Flawless Esp If You Find A Well Maintained And Garaged One — There's everything to like and love. Luxury, power when needed. Extra power when tapped into. Comfortable and low coefficient of drag. .26. That means it glides through the air like a surgeon with a scalpel, which is what I feel like when I lower it completely down and have some open road. Wooo. Nothing like Wide Open Throttle

Perfect car for even everyday driving. Can really change into a sports sedan with just a press of the gas peddle

Perfect Used Buy!!! Run To Get One — I found that there are not a lot that goes wrong with these cars. The S Class stands for total and ultimate luxury. Variable air suspension and a very sporty mode which tightens the steering and shocks and turns it into one mean road eater.

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.)
