I've had my 92 500sel for only a couple of weeks, but I love it. The car is sexy, nothing to it. The body design looks good even 15 years later it has a modern look. The interior is way ahead of its time. It has more features then my 2002 Mercedes. It could do a little bit better on gas but it is a dream to drive. Also quite expensive to keep running but well worth the experience

I bought my 1992 500SEL in 2005 from an older couple who thought they were upgrading to a BMW "7" Series. They really took care of this car. They called me two weeks after obtaining their BMW to see if I would be interested in selling the MB back to them. I politely declined. This car has every option that MB could think of and it drives like a dream. I purchased my car with 75,000 origional miles and drive it going out on the town and on special occasions only. I have put several hundred pampered miles on this car and it is just flauless. I will own this car for at least another ten years or more and probably pass it on to my kids.

I purchased this beast from a friend and he now regrets that he sold it. Since then I put 18" wheels and tires (255/45/18 front & 285/40/18 ZR rated tires)use the best lubricants to keep this beast happy. So far, so good and it can sure fly. I already had it up to 150 mph and it still rides like you are going 80 mph. Safe and quiet! And this beast is 12 years old. Still get looks and asked questions at the fuel station. If you can, obtain a 1992 500 SEL!

Finally, on 8.19.03, I purchased the
Mercedes I've always wanted, a W140 S
Class. This particular unit is a 1992
500SEL with 75,000 miles the day I
bought it. Everything, everything, but
the front seat power head rests
operate as it should. I thought my
W126 (300SDL) was incredible, and it
was, but this S Class is without a
doubt the finest Mercedes ever built.
They can be expesive to maintain, but
my! what an incredible automobile. It
is quiet, comfortable, powerful, and
handsome and safe. What more should a

I recently bought myself a second hand
silver-grey '92 500SL Mercedes-Benz as
my 'summer vehicle'. I already was a
Mercedes fan (reliability) for some
years, and since we have a '89 560SL in
the family I knew it was a fun vehicle.
Well, it sure is! I've been driving it
for a couple of months now and I'm very,
very impressed with the comfort it
provides, especially for a (now) 11-year
old car. Being 11 years old I reckon I
will have some expenses to keep the car
in optimum condition, but in contrast,
the price of purchase was one-fifth of
the original sticker price.
