I own both the BMW 5 series and this Mercedes 320 CDI. The Mercedes is so much more fun to drive! It has the power of a V8 yet sips fuel. The power matches the extra weight to give you the ride of a larger car. The leather seast are well made. The sound system is the best I've seen in a Mercedes ever, remember Becker? This will be a great car for many years.
I love the sound of the diesel, slight but addictive
Ask Lexus for help improving the Nav! Add 19 inch wheels, leather should be standard. The exchange rate is killing the price, give us some extras standard for purchasing a Mercedes.
