My 2003 ES 300 is quieter, peppier and I
feel safer in it than in my 92 MB 300 E that I
traded. On California freeway at 70+ mph
the engine rpm is just over 2200. The dual
climate control works well and is much
quieter than my old MB. The stock sound
system is easily heard at freeway speeds.
I'm 6' 4" tall and the driver's seat comfort and
adjustable positions are easy to set. The
only thing I will add will be after market
Smooth 5 speed transmission and quietness
of engine, interior and ride.
The California walnut on dash should have
a flat finish as the reflection is sometimes
quite bright. Suggest the exhaust pipe
be tucked up under car more.
