TRADED MY E320-AFTER 6MOS TRADED RIGHT
BACK TO AN E500. MY 530 HAD AN MSRP OF 63 K
W/ EVERY POSSIBLE OPTION. DRIVING THIS CAR
WAS LIKE HITTING MYSLEF IN THE HEAD WITH A
HAMMER - IT FEELS SO GOOD WHEN YOU QUIT! I
DRIVE IS EASY, BUT STILL A NEEDLESS HASSLE AND
VERY DISTRACTING. ALSO FAR LESS COMFORT
THAN THE BENZ. LOUSY INTERIOR, POOR
STORAGE, CHEAP LOOKING ORANGE INSTRUMENT
LIGHTS. EXTERIOR DIMENSIONS ARE SLIGHTLY
LARGER THAN THE MERC YET THE MERC IS SO
MUCH MORE ROOMY! BUT THE I DRIVE IN THE
ISSUE - IT MAKES THIS CAR FAR MORE COMPLEX TO
OPERATE THAN IT NEED BE. MY BENZ HAS ALL THE
SAME BELLS AND WHISTLES YET IS EASY AND
INTUITIVE TO OPERATE. BMW WILL DROP I DRIVE!!
CRUISE DISTANCE CONTROL IS AN EXPENSIVE
OPTION BUT WELL WORTH IT; BEAUTIFUL STYLING
DROP I DRIVE!!!! DROP THE CHEESY PONTIAC STYLE
ORANGE INSTRUMENT LIGHTS!!! GIVE US DECENT
CONSOLE STORAGEAND CUP HOLDERS!!!
ELECTRONICS THAT DON'T
FAIL REGULARLY - A BIG PAIN - IT TAKES THE
DEALER 8 HOURS TO RE-PROGRAM EVERY TIME THE
I DRIVE CRASHES, WHICH IT DOES MONTHLY!!
