2007 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
The engine and transmission are fantastic. The power is smooth, ample and desceptive. The car is so quiet you don't realize how fast you are going untill you look at the speedo. The ride is smooth as silk but a bit detached. BMW550 handles way better but the interior was too plastic and cheap looking for $70K. You also have to deal with the idrive. This is luxury with muscle.
Brake assist. Great stereo. Horsepower and acceleration. Interior.
An armrest would be nice. Insulting to have to shell out $350 extra for a cell phone adapter- it's an adapter for Pete's sake. A more responsive suspension would make this a heck of a sports sedan but it is great for cruising
