New guy here with a question

Hello everyone,
Just joined today. We purchased a new 2012 E550 Cab about a year and a half ago and love it. Had a CLK 550 Cabriolet before that. Presently, I own a current model Corvette Z06 and am considering selling it to get into a SL550. This will be a weekend driver as my Corvette is now. Rather than taking the big hit on a new one, I'm considering a used one, say 2008-2012. Is there any year that should be avoided? I'm just looking for some pointers on which is the best year to look at if buying used. I'm aware that the engine changed from a 5.5 to a 4.6 bi-turbo as our E550 has.
Thanks in advance and I look forward to learning more about the SL (end E for that matter)
