So...4 years later and I finally bought a convertible, a 2015 E-400. I had been on the fence for a long time, but I'm glad I waited. I was avoiding the V8's because I know it would be too tempting for me to be a lead-foot. But that's a moot point as the b-turbo V6 puts out 329 HP
The one thing I'm not excited about is the column mount shift, though it does have paddles and the extra space between the seats is kinda nice, but it makes changing vehicles a bit awkward.
Also, I do like the instrument panel and the Car-Play integration in the new A238s, but it just isn't worth taking the first buyer depreciation hit. However, I do prefer the analog clock in the A207 over the round one in the A238.
The weird thing is, I just haven't seen any significant issues in the 4 years I had been looking, though admittedly, I haven't looked that hard...
