I'm John. I have a Pewter Blue 2006 E350 with 82xxx on the clock. It is truly a beautiful automobile, and I intend to keep it for quite awhile. My plans are to badge it at 156k (250k km), and then to keep driving it up to 200k.
This is my third MB. My previous vehicles (both now SOLD) were:
2000 C230 Kompressor
I loved the V8 in the E430. My next vehicle will either be a CLS550 4Matic or an S350 BlueTec.
Just this week, my E350 sprung a leak, and I think it has to do with the transmission control box, which seems to be a common problem on these models. My warranty runs out in Feb. 2013, so I'm glad the leak happened now, and not next year at this time. I have a service appointment scheduled for Tuesday morning.
Anyway, that's my story. I've been poking around on the forums here for a number of years and finally decided to join. This is a great site, and I thank all of the contributors who have provided so much pertinent information over the years...
