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

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.
