After a long jouney through autoland, I'm finally back to MB.
And very pleased with the E350 4Matic.
I've driven the car for one year without any issues at all.
The car operates in the snow like a Jeep and the Paddle shifters allow you to down shift in bad conditions.
The car is fast enough for today's conjested road conditions with power to pass (and besides if I want speed I'll drive my Corvette).
The command control system was much easier to master than I expected.
The sound system is a pleasure with an infinant variety.
From an interior room standpoint I think you get the S size for the E price. Everyone that sits in the car tells me, they don't want to go back to their car.
The windshield wipers seem to have a mind of their own (??) , a more typical American car setting would be better.
And, put the gas tank filler on the drivers side.
