2007 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
The 2007 E550 offers many improvements over previous E models: 7 sp trans, 5.5 ltr motor and no electric brakes. I have just completed a trip to LV from OC and MB still needs to work on the air suspension. No setting works well. The AMG E-63 suspension (recalibration of the air suspension and thicker sway bars)which has had great reviews cannot be ordered on the E550, even though the 550 has 382HP? The E550 also comes with R rated M & S tires? The front rotors are cross drilled yet R rated tires? Per the owners manual 'if speeds over 100mph are anticipated the tires must be over inflated which may cause rough riding around town'? If you like the styling drive a 550 BMW.
Motor, transmission, styling, ventilated seats
Suspension,add Z rated tires, voice activation needs improvement
