    Hi all. Sorry if you've already seen my post in new members. I'm just about to dip my toe into the Mercedes world for the first time. I've found a 1999 S280 with FSH in great fettle. I could write what I know about these cars on the back of a cigarette paper. What's the deal with these cars? Any...

    M104 Misfire (1996 Mercedes S280)

    I always felt my car had a slight misfire (barely detectable, to the point that i thought i was imagining it) Today though, after a 15mile motorway journey i pulled to a stop, the revs dropped and the car has had a very notable missfire since. I changed the plugs 3 months ago, so (currently i...

    W140 S280 4sp or 5sp Auto?

    I'm looking around W140 S280/S320 on the market, I'm covering up to 500 miles a week and this model would fit the bill. I've noticed that the S280 has a 4sp auto, was the 5sp auto an option? My SL320 has a 5sp which has been excellent, but I'm not so sure an S280 4sp is a good combination?
