E-Class Not a Real E Class
By Viyes on
2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Traded in my fully loaded 2002 BMW X5 for a 2008 E350W. Should not compare apples to oranges. First Impression : After few weeks of driving the E Class, corner of my heart the BMW wins. As the saying goes, when you don't have it anymore is you will miss it even more.
Gas mileage to horsepower is great. Dual power heated front seats. Short turning radius, 6CD/MP3 player/Sirius/GPS System, Ipod hookup, Bluetooth. Slow speed engine rpm and quietest I have ever driven
The handrest is in such an ackward position even for 5'10" driver,hits the rite elbow while getting in & out. sometimes it's so hard & I almost missed my heartbeat. Lastly, So upset when I was not able to fit in 2 large suitcases in the boot MBZ has overlooked for a 65K dollar car.!
