Leased this car after leasing an '05 E500 4matic. Like this car almost as much as predecessor. The 350 is missing a few features of the E500. Opted not to get the E550, but why does the E350 not come with the passenger rear view mirror tilt when in reverse, and also the trunk lock button? Also, they stripped the digital hvac function down to the old dials. Finally, the iPod system is disappointing. Why in the year 2008 it doesn't route through the COMAND like the satellite radio, navigation and regular radio is beyond me. It's way too clunky right now. Hopefully, they will address this in future models just to catch up with Ford and Nissan electronics.
Design, silver color, black interior, ride, ample power.
It is the digital age. Should be fully integrated with iPod, all mp3 and USB ports for audio as standard. It's not high-tech and it shouldn't cost hundreds and hundreds. Kommen sie hier, Mercedes!
