    New car. 2003 S600

    It is indeed a wonderful car. Having said that I’m toying with selling her! I’ve had her for nearly eight month and experienced 4K miles with her. A peerless machine for eating up the miles in total, unruffled luxury. And yet...... I’ve read that you’re either and E55 AMG guy or an S600 guy...

    New car. 2003 S600

    Oh, I'm very poor at getting round to posting on here! Update: Gearbox fine now. Started to settle at the front when parked for a while. Bit jerky raising itself when engine started next time. Autotech had a look and found the nearside ride height sensor was seized up. They replaced it, which...

    AutoProtect (MBI) Ltd. I guess the low mileage offset the age. I could have had 2 years warranty for £599, or 3 years for £7999.

    New car. 2003 S600

    About time I posted an update. Where does time go? Had it serviced, although the car tells me it's not due for another 4000 miles. Had a detachable towbar fitted. When it's off you can't tell it's there. Expe Got the new secondary blower and it's fitted and working happily now. Nearside rear...

    New car. 2003 S600

    Decided not to meddle with the beautiful engine: not going down the LPG route. Not that a proper installation would do it any harm at all, but it would remove originality. I'll use it high days and holidays, as they say. Will have the added bonus of keeping the mileage (very) low. It is a lovely...

    You make a good point about heat, coil packs and plugs. And mine has reached 60K, which I am led to understand is about the life of coil packs. I'm going to look into increasing the cooling efficiency. Perhaps a designed rad? LPG on hold till i've considered your points more. Not quite sure...

    New car. 2003 S600

    Find myself loving the S600 now. The E55K was a very hard act to follow, and it was exciting to get in and drive every time. At first I found the S600 less involving, and it is because it is so cosseting, but I have been increasingly impressed with it's competence as well as it's refinement.I...

    When I was considering selling my E55K, and just before I bought the S600, There was a black E55K Estate advertised which had lpg installed 4 years before. I was too late. It had no trouble selling apparently. I presume most people realise that such a car is dual fuel - ie can run on lpg OR...

    You may well be right, Mike, though I struggle to understand how anyone could consider it a disadvantage rather than an advantage. As for your question ".....who wants to buy a V12 with lpg?" - surely the answer is: someone who would love to enjoy a V12 but finds 18mpg a bit prohibitive, but...

    New car. 2003 S600

    Great car. great engine, Fantastic mpg for what it is. Mind you I had my good lady travelling next to me. That sort of reigns things in a bit! As for lpg, there do seem to be a lot of misconceptions about it. Firstly there's so little difference in bhp and mpg between using lpg or petrol it's...

    Had a detachable towbar fitted. Took a bit of searching to find someone who said it could be done! Used Wez Plummer of Audenshaw, Manchester. He did a proper job, good quality fittings and first class fitment. He even did it on a sunday for me so I could use it the next week. Towed our caravan...

    New car. 2003 S600

    Received my correct full pack of manuals in leather case, as sourced by the dealer who sold me the car (Tim Hayward Car Sales, Cardiff - good guy). He has sourced a secondary blower which will be coming to me soon. Only the door lock to sort out now: I've left it a while and its not getting any...
