Is The Grass Greener?

I have a very nice 1999 SL500 with 34K miles with both hard tops in Desert Silver. I recently found a 2002 Silver Arrow with 58K miles and panoramic roof for $15K. Do you think there is enough collectability worth in the Silver Arrow branding to justify trading? I could just keep both, but only have a 2 car garage. Was the build quality compromised between 1999 & 2002, with the merger having time to sink in?

The Pano and Silver Arrow do worth a few bucks more. If the difference is ~$3K (than what you can sell your car for) I would go for it. If it is $5K or more, I wouldn't.
The Pano is worth $2-$3K (to those who wanted one), so that adds a few bucks to the car you have.
What it boils down to is : do you want a Silver Arrow which is 2 years newer and how much you are willing to pay for the difference.
