E320 4matic...1999 vs 2000

Hi gang, how are you? just wanted to get some info. i was thinking about these two cars. I have not seen them in person. I know that maintenance is key.
the 1999 has over 200k km on the clock and the 2000 model has about 160k km on it. price was the 1999 is a bit more expensive.
Between these two model years, which is more reliable? i hear that 2002 was a good year as well, but didn't see any for sale.

Hello, I think the 2000 is a better buy because it has lower mileage and on top of it, 2000 is a facelift model with a few more goodies! Upgraded exterior, blinking rear view mirrors, multifunction display, steering wheel button and the tail lights. Here is a pic of a preface lift and facelift...look at the front bumpers and also the facelift one on the right has a lower front end. Don't forget to check which one has more maintenance records!

For me the only important change on postlifted is stronger cage, although I like gadgets like wheel buttons.
But the postlift with diesel never made it over the pond, so we drive with no wheel buttons.
