I thank you guys for your helpful comments. I've decided to go for at least the 4.2L powerplant over the 3.2L, mainly because I feel the six is tepid whereas the eight has a larger punch. Unfortunately, I do not have the funds to go with such a new S-Class. The newest I would be able to get would be a 1994, or in a slim case, a 1995.
The main reasons I picked the S-Class was because I like the looks, for one. The room it employs is another great feature, plus all the power amenities. My parents and I like to take frequent trips, utilizing the Interstate. I feel the S-Class a worthy machine for the case. I'll look into the pricing for a 1994 S420, then I'll report back to tell you what I found. Thanks again.
