RE: MB E320 CDI or Lexus 430 opinons
I'm also 6'5" and am also considering the E320 CDI. I recently rented an E200 CDI for a 1,200 mile/5 day trip through Europe. Legroom is always an issue for me, but was not in the W211 (it would, however, be for the poor soul behind me).
I haven't sat in or driven the new Lexus, but they are both fine vehicles. The Lexus' styling is a bit generic, IMHO.
Given how much you drive, $1,70/gallon for diesel vs. $2.30/gallon (in my area) for premium unleaded is a consideration, esp. over 10 years.
After 10 years, resale value on either vehicle won't matter.
