BMW Fan Get His Mercedes
By HiHoMike on
2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
I've owned 7 BMW 5 series vehicles. The last one I had was a 535i, but it rode so badly and had many problems When I got my new E350, I was really surprised. I got the Sport Package, which stiffens the ride a bit, but not as harsh as the BMW. I've only had it for a week or so, but fuel economy is good (not great) and the handling is stupendous for a Benz. I only hope I don't have problems with this E350 as I see many people have had some problems, but can't be as bad as the BMW535i.
I-Pod, stereo system superior to BMW Logic 7, walnut wood (special order option on Sport Package) is so rich, electronics take much practice to master, but seem fine. Power sunshade is a plus here in Florida and comfort is superior to BMW.
Seems like old technology (Nav system is slow and antiquated) as are the digital readouts. But I can live with these because it is so much better than the BMW's I've owned.
