E 320 vs. E 420

E 220T:

I've owned both the E 320 and the E 420 models. In every regard, the E 420 is a much better performing car. It's also more reliable and quieter running.

Good Luck

On the E420 97-2000 models are there any known problems to look out for?

1997 was the last year for the E420. After that i was the E430. As far as know problems with the E420, I haven't heard of anything that always goes wrong. I can tell you that rust around the trunk LED receiver is typical in the rust belt. The hole for this receiver was not properly treated at the factory.

I just read (did some searching) that it had some problems with the 722.6 transmissions. Was 1997 the only year they used the 722.6?
Thanks.

I thought that trasnsmission was used from 1997 - 2002? 1996 was the only year of the W210 with the 4 speed, but that should be bulletproof.

The early 1997 722.6 had problems. I believe cars produced late in the year had an upgraded transmission.
I had my 97 E420 checked by the dealer (produced October 1997 - so one of the very last ones) and they said that it had the upgraded valve body, they also claim they upgraded the software (but it think that a bunch of c..p).
