    Hi

    By 05 the E class should be a mix of galvanised steel and aluminium so rust should not be a problem.

    I have had my 04 for a couple of years and haven't seen any body problems.

    The engine just feels fantastic and the whole experience of driving her is special. I also am getting about 23 mpg according to the computer ( I can't be giving it enough welly)

    Buy and enjoy.

    Hello,

    Have you seen this? Probably a little more money than the 05 but it's a facelift, 388 bhp rather than 306 and open to offers!
