Which is better?

So ive got a question, i'm going to be buying a new car some time in the next few months so i need your opinions. So which is your opinion. I will be selecting between a 2003 S500 or a 2004 or 2005 E500? Which would you prefer and why.

I would go for S500, it's larger. E500 is more sporty.

But i'm still keeping my 1994 e420. a 2003 S500 will cost about $35k to $40k. Is this a right price for it or to high. The exact price on it is $39,995 with 30k miles. Oh and it's silver my fav color on a car mainly mercedes though.

No question that resale value of S-class cars plummets faster than that of E-class models. You do get more for your money, then.

Then why not thinking of S600 in stead of S500?

I don't like the W220's interior. So I'd go with the W211, which I think is very nice.

The W220 is one generation of S class that I am skipping.
