I'm thinking of buying a 2015 S500.
Is there anything that I should be wary of or should especially look at?
Any guidance will be appreciated.

… your passengers will thank you immensely. You probably won’t like any other Merc for comfort.

Purchased a stunning black S500 amg line.
Quite a different beast to the S63 I was thinking of buying & drive wise better than the 63 I already own.
Pictures please. Presuming it’s the 4.7 ltr twin turbo variant

So far I'm mightily impressed with the S500.
Not much difference power wise with the 63 I already own but comfort wise it's second to none.
You're right about the smile factor S500 Pete,and plenty of envious glances aswell always makes you feel like you've made the right purchase.
