E55 S55K owners feedback needed

I decided to post in this section instead of the model specific categories because I wanted to get a wider array of opinions so here goes.
Purchased a E420 in January. One of the reasons for getting the 420 was my 13 y/o daughter being nearly 6 ft and not really comfortable in the 9-3 I had previously. She has good room in the 420 and wanted to know if the 211 has a lil more room than the 124 or would it be adviseable to go for the S55 if I am concerned about room. I have a good indie shop that I trust to do repairs and get PPI as well. Also I am generally looking at 2004-5 models for each. Mileage tends to be just under 100K and wanted to know if NCA or Fidelity would cover or any other valid 3rd party warranty.Feedback from E55 and S55 owners would be welcomed.

I have both a W124 and a W211. The front room is very similar.

The back seating seems to have more legroom in the W214.

Great, thanks. It seems to come down to what I want to deal with. Seems like e55 is the airmatic system and the s55 is the airmatic and ABC. Looking to spend about 15k and maybe designating another 2k for post purchase maintenance.
