As it is, demand for Select seems so low (or maybe there are too many drivers now) already that I can't imagine it being profitable to join LUX.
I guess if you're already a high-roller with money who happens to own an S-class, and all you're trying to do is get out a few times a month and drive because you're bored, then perhaps it would work... but I can't imagine investing in a car of this level specifically with the idea of making money on LUX.
Imagine having a $94,000 S-class idling at the curb on a Friday night waiting for some rich guy to ping you 2 hours later... but hey, look on the bright side: at least the minimum fare is $10.00 even if it's a 1.5 mile ride...! That oughta help cover those 4-figure car payments and insurance each month.
