Tough choice, but that s600 would get my vote. A 190 is fun but I found it to be too small.

Looks like you're just itching to locate a rolling receptacle for large amounts of your disposable income. Perhaps you should consider taking up online gambling

I think it would be worth it, to drive it around for a year or so.

Until you get stuck with the bill to replace the engine harness and not one but two ETAs. You couldn't pay me enough to take on a used MB V12 from that era

You're probably right, but I'd have a look if I could afford it. OTOH My new to me 400 was only $1200 with enough of its own bugs.

Enterprise. Fox. Hertz. Budget. Rent A Wreck.

All better choices.
