Nice whip. My previous Merc was an 05 E500 that I loved, truly a lovely car. The 5.0 felt a lot stronger than the numbers suggested it would. Current daily driver is an '11 N/A E550. Better in every way than the 05 except perhaps in body styling and possibly sound deadening. The N/A 5.5 is loosely based on the old 5.0 but is much stronger. Don't get one with 4Matic unless you absolutely need it.

My wife's BMW is more "fun" and engaging to drive, but the Benz is a train on the highway.

MM236, try to hold out for a CLS 550, worth the search.
