Nothing but good on this one

I have had nothing but good results with my 2004 E500. Acceleration is great. I have read some of the other entries here and feel for those who have had a different experience. Maybe it was luck, or whatever, but my E500 has been awesome. My lease is up soon and I am trying to decide what to do. I should buy this car, but am tempted to check out even more power. The acceleration is addictive. Make sure you obtain a radar detector. Such is the only reason I am not locked up.
Acceleration, high speed acceleration. Handling. With consistent care, the exterior paint and interior leather look brand new. Wheels look great and clean nicely
Some of the fake woodgrain thingies in the passenger area cover up flimsy plastic. For example, the middle console compartment handles: the wood grain outer part is atop white plastic. Should not be the case for this level of car. Front grille should not be plastic
