The "W140" Mercedes-Benz S-Class is the best S-Class ever. Today I'm going to show you why the 1990s S-Class is the best one by reviewing this S500, and I'm going to show you the quirks and features of the W140 S-Class -- an impressive car that pioneered a lot of technology. I'm also going to get the W140 S-Class out on the road and see how it drives.

Other things that I loved about the W140. 1. Steering was light and the turning diameter was excellent for a big car. 2. When fixing, changing items under the hood, it could be raised straight up. 3. All of the outside lights did not need any tools to remove and replace. 4. The dash lights were a breeze to change 5. The radio was a breeze to change. 6. The 96 and on AC unite were a breeze to change. 7. The spare tire cover had a rope attached that connected to the boot to keep the cover open while you grabs the tires and tools. 8. The AC and front window defroster was the stongest I have ever seen. 9. If soneone pits there fingers on the window while its going up it will tap the top and then roll down. 10. On newer W140s besides having rear sensors for reversing, it had front sensors as well. 11. If your riding in the MB by your self and you want all the air or heat to you only or away from you - the to open and close vent lever was right there. Very convenient. I used It all the time. 12. The door handles were just solid. Every thing was solid. 13. The hood had two release locks instead usual one. 13. My mechanic said the brake pads were the size you put on f450 trucks -huge. 14. The roof railing kept the rain from running into the car. I miss my W140. I had a Black on Black. My only issue was alleged mechanics (and there were many) who claim to know how to fix it lied. From a perfect car to one that things were no longer working. But I loved that car. 11.

Why would you compare the features of a 25 year old car to today and give it a 4? This car was well ahead of its time and set precedent.

I had 1992 BMW 730i with factory front and rear park distance control... How did mercedes invent them later than 1994?
kopu112 Pirms 8 dienām
Bmw also wanted to put v16 on e32(started developing in 1987 and was ready for 1988,project "goldfisch") ... And had xenon headlights in 1991 on 750i. So it's hard to say that these things were so unbeliveable in 1996 or smth.

correction : the automatic folding Mirrors was intended for the safety of the Mirrors when the car was been washed by a Car wash automated hydraulic spinners , the rules of all employees ( car wash attendants ) were to fold all side mirrors to prevent them from been damaged by washing rollers .

That's not a W140, it's a V140. V indicates long wheelbase, they only brought long wheelbase and coupe (C) and cabriolet (A) to the US
JDM180 Pirms 21 dienas
I think you messed up on the title. This was definitely the worst S class ever. V220 was almost as bad, V221 was way better than both 140 and 220. V222 is the best, because it's the newest, and in my opinion a bargain when comparing with Rolls Royce, Bentley, etc. I actually think the S class is nicer, and a fraction of the price of those super high end cars.

This channel is obviously of interest to men. HAIR LOSS is also a topic of major interest to MEN so go to www.BornAgainHair.com and learn about a NEW science which explains that the main cause of HAIR LOSS is not DHT but a blockage of BLOOD FLOW caused by a tight LOWER scalp layer called the GALEA. This causes a low OXYGEN condition called HYPOXIA and this then causes DHT to be over-produced and only then the DHT becomes the “ killer ” of hair. Normally DHT is good for proper hair growth and all male characteristics, so screwing around with reducing DHT is a BAD idea because it has serious consequences like ...IMPOTENCE. The OLD methods have failed because they focus only on DHT and not on the MAIN cause...which is the disruption of the BLOOD FLOW to the scalp..." layman's logic ". This new method has over 28,500 members all over the world with a success rate of more than 95% and uses no drugs, no lotions and no surgery.

Problem is, once you buy an S Class, 7 Series, LS, A8, etc, you spend years comparing how yours is more unique, better, etc than the others. It's like supporting one of Liverpool, Man City, Arsenal, Man UTD, Chelsea, Tottenham, you're always judged in competition with them and you start thinking in those terms too.
