New member very excited - but is the colour right

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
