    My car

    I bought this car in Jan 2005, one of the first in the country. I have covered 12000 KM of trouble free motoring. The car is the best looking car on the road. Fantastic looking car, very nice to drive everyday, an excellent motorway cruiser. The engine is silky smooth, handling is v.good, at high speed very stable.

    Cabin access is restrictive for larger persons, especially 6,2 FT +, as the sweeping lines are low people bang heads getting in & out, especially the front passengers.

    Equipment levels are excellent, very elegant interior.

    No real negative points, when driving slowly, gearbox 7G tronic box can be a little clunky (same happens on my 500 SL).

    If you want a stylish car that seats 4 only, with a decent boot & swift performance this is a very fine balance, one of the best cars I have bought, & definitely the best looking

    My car

    I think you either love this car or hate it. I was seduced by the good looks and bought a 320 diesel. When I got it, I found I didn't like the high-gloss wooden dash and found the reflections off it where the steering column comes out very annoying.

    The steering around town was numb, and the Parktronic option was wasted on me. On the other hand, the engine was powerful and, as a fast cruiser, it was suberb. I couldn't live with its faults, but miss having it.

    My car

    I have owned this car since October and have covered about 10000 miles in it already, which includes a couple of high-speed journeys to Italy and Germany.

    I have had no problems at all the dealer has been A1.

    So if you want the best looking car on the road with plenty of go and makes you feel very special then get down to your local Mercedes dealer with your cheque book.

    My car

    I have driven 1200 miles. The comfort and performance is fantastic. I have an issue with the gearchange when slowing causing the gears to snatch.

    The Mercedes-Benz dealer in Romford is being very helpful. They are consulting headquarters to find a cure.
