Exellent bang for the buck
By true driver on
2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
When comparing the E550 against the S class, cadillac CTV, the BMW 5 and Lexus 460 this model by far is the best of the bunch. The interior alone beats all. The premium II package is a must. The ride is excellent and the interior noise is very very low. It handles extremely well for a sedan and braking has very little fade. Exterior styling is elegant and the Sedan model with the hood ornament steels the show. Quality is fantastic. The engine/horsepower/torque and 7 speed transmission is phenomenal. Disengage the traction control and take off when the light changes...yeah, it's that fast!
The panorama roof is fantastic. It feels like being inside convertible without the wind noise. The stereo is incredible although needs a couple of features.
The stereo needs a separate sub woofer control and should be modified to control an iphone. Get rid of the clock in the instrument cluster and put more useful engine monitoring gauges. Use 8 inch screen, an extra 12 volt input in the rear center console and an add an auxiliary input
