I have a 2009 E550 and it's amazing. I love my car plane and simple. A few things to consider, the air suspension can be very expensive if there is an issue, in addition if the car has the lighting package the xenon active headlights can run some $2500.00 per chamber if my information is correct. That said, if you're responsible with the car, maintain it and take it in the second an issue comes up you should be just fine. One key is if there is a suspension issue, you won't fit two fingers between the fendor and the wheel. Pull the car strait back and back in but DO NOT turn the wheels. If the car does not raise it self you have a problem with the air suspension, have hte car towed. I've been told of issues that would have cost $1000.00 turning into 10,000.00 problems because people drove the car while the air shocks were not working properly.

At any rate, if you do do grab an 08 E550 I do hope you enjoy it, otherwise I might recommend the 09 which has the updated software for the Navi which I consider far superior to the previous version used in 08 and below.
