If you decide to go for the 16v, get the 2.5-16.
500E is a great car, but it's mainly meant for autobahnstorming rather than a slalom course (although it's quite capable of doing both.)

I actually enjoy driving the 16v more because, with a manual box, it's a FUN car to drive. Especially in the city. the 500E is great on the country roads, hwy, and mountain switchbacks, but it's a larger car and harder to find parking for.
