Hi Robert, the main difference is the the 500E had leather Recaro sport seats (beefier bolstering and different stiching) - very nice. Also the rear seat was more a two-bucket configuration with a center wood-grained console as between the front seats.
I'd check Dean's need2speed website - I'm sure there are pictures there.
