There is nothing I hate about mine, but nothing I love either. It's alright.

I hate the Tiptronic on my 2002 E320. It's a pathetic design that I have to rock down through 4, 3, 2, to get to 1. The 2001-current Volvos and even a recent VW alllow you to switch from auto to tip, starting you at exactly which gear you're currently in.

They better darn well make a manual in the '09 E-class and sell it in the USA. Automatic is so lame.

Your tranmission performs a bit differently than mine. If the gear selector on my car is in D, and the trans is in 3rd gear, and I click it to the left, it stays in 3rd. Click it to the left again, and it drops to 2nd.

Are you saying yours would jump to 5th from 3rd?

Dealership Experience, Shitty MBUSA Service, Lack of QUALITY on newer models, and as already stated: the PRICKS that can't stand the fact that I own a one and they don't.

Keep em running...

Looking for a 300E - Have you seen one worth "investing" in??

Nothing about the cars, it's just that there are too many plans to do yet so little time (and money)

Although I love how some people stare at my car especially if they have a newer MB! Which reminds me, I have to clean the car tomorrow, I've been busy lately so I didn't have time to keep it clean. That's also the fun part, working on these cars.

Easy...

I hate the throttle response and MB stealerships and the f***n fact that everyting for my car costs more, not because of quality but because its a benz...case in point a supercharger.....same model...costs 3900 for the same thing on other cars, for my car, 9000 for the same damn thing
