    Mine is ok, and there are a lot here that have pan roof. If you keep up with the service lubricating is part of the service. Also, my seals are perfect still and mine is a 2013. My roof from the outside is lovely, my roof is pretty much glass.

    E350 CDi Blue Efficiency Sport Coupe, fast, smooth, comfortable, what more does one need?
    Make sure it's in absolute A1 minted condition for that money.

    I bought a '59 plate E350 CDi Coupe last year and paid almost 2K over the odds because I didn't do enough research.

    All I could see was a minted low milage (17K) Coupe and full service history, which was a mix of MB and Indie.

    Just out of curiousity I checked a couple of those "We buy any car" type web sites after a years ownership to get a valuation for insurace and discovered I've lost 6K at trade prices and 4K at retail.

    It's just as well I love the car and intend to keep it, because basically I have no choice, due to letting my heart rule my head.

    Please don't get caught out the same way 'cos negative equity is a bitch.

    My coupe is a little older at 2010 but basically the same. Practicality wise it’s pretty good. 2 x young kids 3 & 5 years old when I bought the car 2 years ago. Car seats are a bit of a pain, they don’t fit brilliantly in the sports style rear seats. Now the kids are a little bit older they strap themselves in so no issues there anymore. It’s not just the kids that love the Pano roof either. Best extra available bar the lighting pack.

    For me the bi-xenon lights are fantastic living on small country roads they move with the steering wheel to point in the direction you are going.

    Great car but as the guys have said there is plenty about so don’t pull the trigger on the first one, test drive a few to see how they differ and ensure it has good service history. Mine had low miles for year but with little service history and I’m possibly paying the price for it although all is a good car once again.

    The 3.0 derv engine is a peach. The gearbox is smooth in all modes but especially responsive in sport mode.

    Thanks all so much for your input.. the biggest plus point for me on this car is mileage and fsh, plus the features it has (except on roof now that I’ve heard from the forum members)... now I’m thinking perhaps I should hold out for a pan roof model instead... my aim is to keep the car for a while, hence the low mileage is a plus point... so I’m now in 2 minds !

    JFDI once you find a pano roof model. JBell will be along with a choice, soon.

    I didn’t have a Pano roof in my Coupe and didn’t miss it but I have one in my new car and wouldn’t want to be without it now.

    Hi all, so... an update... I think I’m going to go for this one... ok.. it has no pano roof, but other than that I think it’s the right car for me - white with black interior... those in the know.. can you please advise about the following features.. (I find it’s better to ask those who are actually familiar with 1st hand use than a dealer reading from a brochure) :

    1. LED Intelligent Light System - high-performance headlamps . What exactly are these ? Are they like xenons?

    2. AMG sports package

    3. Premium Package

    4. Agility control package

    5. Agility Control sports suspension

    6. Interior lighting package

    7. Remote Online

    Thanks as always!

    If you had put it into WBAC before you bought it it would still have been way below market value. You can never buy a decent car for what you can sell it for. You always get a big hit just driving it off the forecourt. That's cars for you. On WBAC my car is worth a bag of crisps and a diet coke. But I love it, it's mint and I'll keep it for ever. (or until it dies anyway) In the long run it's always paying a little extra if you get a car you love.

    Does it have COMAND?

    ILS is very good headlights point where you are steering etc and better than Xenons

    So ILS doesn't mean that you've got Xenons? A chap at work has ILS, and he always said that that was the best optional extra he's ever put on a car.

    My friends 2015 E-Class saloon had them - almost like magic how they shadowed out just the oncoming cars.

    Mine has the LED ILS - amazing to see a dark box round the car in front with my lights shining either side. They must wonder what’s happening!

    Have you considered a C207 E400 Coupe?

    M276 V6 bi-turbo petrol with 333hp. A super smooth, super quiet car with strong performance from 3.0 V6 (or 3.5 V6 depending on build date).

    I was considering the E400, but fuel costs would be too high I think
