E350 CDi on it's way! Factory collect in late March. I've been very staid and gone for Iridium Silver with black Leather, now I'm wondering should I have gone for the Cuprite Brown. It looked stunning on a cloudy day, and in the brochure, but in a rare day of winter sunshine it just looked, well, brown. I may still have time to change the colour this weekend. Tenorite Grey perhaps?
It's replacing my ML500 which just got too thirsty and "wobbly" for me. I didn't need the space and missed the ability to drive quickly round corners.
My first MB was a 190E over twenty years ago. It was written off when parked outside my house and a drunk chinese waiter ran into it in his people carrier.
Had an E200 a little later (probably 1995) then a C180 Estate (that would have been 1999)
My wide's pride and joy is an SLK350
I didn't realise I'd been such a MB fan until I counted back. Even my wife's initials are MB
I tried the E220 Estate at the recent launch, and it was good but sounded a bit gruff. The sales guy at my local dealer gave me the keys to his E350 CDi and it was love at first drive
. Any one who tells you the 220 or 250 are the ones to go for is IMHO wrong. The 350 and 7 speed auto is awesome
