    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.

I wish world could just take a break from Technology and gets back to 90's. Cars, Music, Movies, Environment, everything was just at the peak of their respective industry. Too much tech has ruined us as human beings. I mean this S500 and E38 in the late 90's, GNR, Heat & Goodfellas. What else would have wished for?

On the air conditioning controls there is a "REST" button, you press that and the air conditioning will use the engine heat to keep you warm even when the engine is not working. Also some W140s have fridge behind the rear armrest.

You don't have cupholders in this because who the fuck would bring drink INSIDE this car. I guess the most is to hold the drinks while you eat and drink in the car so you don't have to be outside but you never drive while you eat or drink. If you had money for this car you have no need for rush.

Saw this car In person last week here in Nigeria. The door weighed close to a ton. The glass is so thick you would think it was bullet proof. The bumpers had chrome and they looked so tough and tightly fixed in place. I wonder what the latest W223 would be like. The Engineers really did this.

I bought a 1984 190E, nice car—my entry to MB, but the radiator was a weak point, and the transmission had to be replaced early on. Also interior door panel coverings were poorly glued. All-in-all, not a bed car.

Here we call this car Ghost. Personally I prefer the later models (last 2-3 years) especially because of the 5-speed trans and tackling the bio-degradable wiring harness. I own a W124 and it's called Ghost Baby/Junior because its later models (94-95) looked like a miniature W140. Some of the evaluation aspects up there are subjective and region dependent. Fun and cool factors to me are at least 7 and 7 respectively, and practicality here is at least 7 as well because we have many dealers for parts and knowledgeable technicians to fix it for cheaper than the local dealer. All this is considering the last MY W140. Typically last MY in the body style has the best technical specs and for old cars its my point of evaluation.
