Well the W220 and W221 have more power then the W140. If i had the money I'd go for the W221.

From what I hear, you'd better get one with a warranty unless you can work on them yourself. I agree with the others, in that I'd want a W220 (the newer the better) or W221 but only because you can still get a used 220 as a CPO and of course a 221 as either CPO or new.

If you can do at least some of the work, I'd recommend a W140 and the newer the better, as in a 1999 (last year of production).
