Hello fellow Merc Lovers. I thought id post in the w212 too se how you feel about your car compared to Pre facelift w221

So, im 21 years old, and im making a huge upgrade from a 94 w202 c220 264.000 miles, to one of theese 3:
1. W212 2012 e350 Amg package avantgarde - 183.000 miles.

Price 40.000 euros , 43.000 dollars
Pros: alot of new low mileage stuff as engine, turbo, particels, airmatic kompressor, brakes etc, diesel economy
Cons; no warranty, rest of car mileage is High (if it matters) no gadgets at all (do i need Them?), 200 dollar/6month higher tax than s500, 400 dollar compred to w212.
Im leaning towards s500.. Because of its majestic engine and gadgets.. But 2006 for that Price, not sure if too High?
E350 because its a 2012, Nice paint, good gadgets, but milege?? (Afraid its Comming to a problem filled number)
S320: diesel, Nice clean black, 2008, almost new engine and parts
But no options and the Whole car has done High mileage.
S320 and e350 both Worked as taxis, but final service has Been good and expensive with High bills done for both..
Im really Confused..
What Would you guys say? E or S?
Thanks so Much in advance , i appreciate any comments, dear fellows.
