Question about Difference in E 350 and E 550
Obviously, the name E 550 sounds a lot better and is more prestigious than an E 350 and here is my situation so I would appreciate any replies and feedback.
If both cars were fully loaded (with sports package and the p1 and p2 package) then are the cars identical other than the engine and the tag? I am 23 years old, and I can afford the lease payments for the E 550 because I found a deal for about 800/month but then maybe I can get an E 350 for around 550 a month i'm guessing because of the lease specials that are out on these cars right now. I live in Southern California and obviously I care about having the best of things and an image bla bla...but then I was thinking...I don't really drive my cars fast and I will not really be using the E 550 engine and I will only be getting the E 550 for the name...unless there are any sort of differences with the cars? I am in a sticky situation and one second I say E 550 is worth the difference because of the name but in another second I say, i'm still 23 and it's still a damn nice car. I know the MSRP for E 550 is like 63,000 or so I think the E 350 is like 49,000 or so? I appreciate the help in my dilemma because I am going to be getting one of these cars in the next few days...
