Hey guys, I like the new S55 AMG's with 493HP, body kit, exhaust and looks better than the older AMG version. But the other day saw a S55 AMG 2002 355HP for $63,000. I test drove it and I like the interior, handling, ride and it has pretty good acceleration, similar as the E500, now I have second thoughts. Well my question is should I go for the older version or wait for the newer AMGs prices to go down or wait for a special deal. I saw a 2004 S55 for $88,000 online on Mercedes website the other day but now I cant find it. Well just need some opinions from you guys. My current C280 is a great car but I wanna get something better...
Thanks

If you can wait and have money, go for the latter one. It has more HP/TQ and holds value better, IMO.

Thanks for your info. Inguyenh. Yeah im gonna wait a little bit more. I went to the Dealer today and saw the S55 with 493HP. They ask for $30000 down and $1600 a month (lease). I dunno maybe I'll get the S500 preowned with Sports Package so I can have payments in the $1000 range. Is just that I like the size, interior, ride and performance. I dont know about the S430 Performance but the S500 and S55 older version has awesome acceleration. Well see...

If that is the case, you might be able to pay off the 2001 S500 Sport for around the lower $30K
