Had this car for 9 months now and thought I would post a note to let you all know how much I am enjoying it. It is very comfortable, smooth as you like and the engine is just sublime. Had various engines in the past and had tried to largely stay away from the previous generation OM651 as wasn't a big fan (still have this in the GLC!). But the new engine is just something else. I understand they no longer make a V6 but am strarting to think what must the new in-line 6 be like in the 400d models!? Does anybody drive one of those? Anyway the car is a base model E220d SE. No bells and whistles but does everything I ask of it with minimal fuss. Highly recommend it if anybody is after such a car!
