I had a W124, now have an E430 and E320, both 4 matic. I like them, have had very good luck with both and need another car for the family. I have a friend that has a 2001 S500, and I have been in it many times, has over 200000mi. I like that it has a larger rear seat, but otherwise I don't need the larger size.
Good W210's are getting hard to find and I wanted to look for something newer. The W211 seems small to me, so I was thinking of looking for a 2004-6 S class, but as everyone knows, suspension problems can be costly. I only want the 500 or the E55, and I don't need another 4matic, should I stick with what I know and just search for a good W210?

Well, it's the W220 forum. We'd probably say get an '03 W220 or later, and really enjoy life! The '05 and '06 are pretty reliable, and Arnott's has brought the cost of airmatic strut replacement way down (of course, if you meant S55 instead of E55 above, you're looking at an ABC suspension).

In my opinion I would try looking for a nice w210 , in my experience they have less issues then 211 or 220. But it is a matter of preference and how much you are able to spend on the car and maintnance
