420 vs 320 or similar threads

Oops didn't noticed you had already bought,

Owned a nice 400E, recently sold it.
Bought a 97 320 to replace it, didn't even think of a 420/430.

Carman said it best. The 6 feels a whole lot better balanced.

I'd suggest driving both before deciding.

In addition, parts cost and availablilty are a lot better on the 6. Check the price on the caps and rotors on that 119. Yikes!!!

The V8 cars are intoxicating though.
On a 94 most of the V8 power cars had the nagging issues resolved. (Powers steering, brakes, idler pulleys, etc.)

You really can't go wrong with either, by my opinion.

Besides I really want a E55, but have to wait til I get the kids through college 1st.
