Yes ladies and gents, I have finally jumped into the pool. Purchased an 09 E350 Coupe today in Palladium Silver, very good spec and very good price. bit the guys hand off in the end!

Drove it back from Herne Bay today and was unbelievably impressed, not ashamed to admit I squealed a few times hammering it down the M2!

I AM ONE OF YOU! :D:D:D:D

Pics to follow!

Lucky devil, I'm still waiting for my E350 CDI coupe. :(

Still, I guess good things come to those who wait. Lol!

Well done with the purchase! Now, all that 350 engine is asking of you is a decent trip to autobahn.

When I finally get mine, my first trip will be to Chelmsford - home of the well known MB tuners. :D

It will be: goodbye to the DPF, EGR and speed limiter. Hello to a remap and 310bhp and 750Nm torque (increases of 45 and 130 respectively)

THEN to the autobahns........... wherever located. ;)

Driving your motor will be mental - I haven't had any tuning done to mine (yet) and I'm still giddy driving it! :p

Bear in mind I already drive a 366bhp twin-turbo beast! ;)

Is your coupe a Sport model? If so, how do you find the suspension - is it a decent enough ride on the rough UK roads we've become resigned to?

it's a sport yes. The suspension is OK - have to go over speedbumps a little slower than I did in the 206cc my Mrs has but overall the ride is very good! Did 1h40 back from picking it up yesterday and it went like a breeze - the seats are good and compliment the ride well!

I've noticed I'm going to need a new front tyre soon - any recommendations? and is getting one OK or best to replace both at the same time?

On another MB forum, Vredestein was recommended as a ride-improver for the C207; but I have no personal experience. Maybe sometime else on here has.

I love the shape of the E-class coupé for some reason. I always mistake this model of E-class coupé for a CLS. Bro, what a nice ride. Love the DRL as well. Well done, sir!
