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: The best car I ever owned. Looking forward to a new model in the next 2 years

Cons: repairs tend to be to expensive. After market seems to be my only option

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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

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

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

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

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

Cons: I wish I had 2

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.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very, Very Fast. Scary Fast.

Cons: Not-so-good gas mileage

Awesome — This Car is Awesome....It's Sexy..It Flies...It Stops..It's Comfortable..It's easy to look at..It's as quiet at 80mph as your living room..But at over One Hundred Thousand Dollars, it better be...This is the car that every Lexus Owner wished they could afford..

Pros: This is the Car that everybody wishes they had...

Cons: The $100,000.00 Price

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.

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

Pros: FAST! Comfortable and Safe

Cons: Not cheap to keep!

Pros: Very Clean vehicle

Cons: Moving so have to sell

Best Car Ever Made Hands Down — Absolute best car ever made. It accelerates like no other even though it weighs over 6,000 pounds. Brakes are a strong as then can be and it handles better any my uncles Maserati. Build Quality wise I have never had a single issues, ever except for the ABC suspension which died because of a personal issue. Appearance wise nothing can come even close because I have the AMG package. Cost of ownership is high, its an S-Class you have to have money to have one. Fun factor, nothing is more fun.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Comfortable (beyond believe, massages), POWER, Handling

Cons: The Cost is the downside but it is well worth it!!!
