Mercedes quality without the pretense

ReviewThis is my daily commuter car, for which
purpose it is flawless. I have had
absolutely no problems with it, except I
have had to replace the special tires I
put on it (I put wide rims with wide
tires for style).
My wife's Mercedes 300e is boring, with
vague suspension characteristics and a
lousy sound system(Bose, but still
lousy) by comparison!
Best FeaturesSuperior cabin air quality and HVAC system--best I have ever had. Very comfortable seats, dynamite sound system, great tracking due to FWD. Standards include heated seats, sunroof, ESP, TCM, ABS, Xenon,6-CD player and cassette. Nav system is fantastic.
Worst FeaturesThe standard wheels look like they belong on a Buick. I added Borbet wheels w/wide tires = sports sedan! Rear-end styling is bland. The engine could stand a boost. I am always trying to justify a more expensive upgraded car, but can't seem to!
