thanks for the advice...
since the E500/500E has it all and more just that you pay for upfront instead of going through the headache of doing upgrades to an E420. Well, i will surely test drive an E500 soon. i really want to see what it is like. your 400E looks pretty good. my preference would to lower the car a bit thats all.
what price range of the 1992 500E are you looking for? how bout 1994? what price range would be fair and good? is 80,000 miles considered a lot? (from the miles i see MBs go i assume 80,000 is nothing)
