58-reg Petrol, Owner for 1 to 3 years

This is the best car i own. i have just ordered the face lift model aswell, which looks slightly better. the comfort is emense and and i only have the 3.5 V6, but the acceleration is mindblowing when i put mu foot to the floor. the COMMAND system is very simple to use. i also have a bmw 7 series wich is quite a bad car compared to this. my new C class estate elegance is just about as good as my flagship bmw. the mercedes has much more space and is more confortable.

i have many cars, and this is just one car in my collection. cars only go into the collection if i think the car is overall fantastic. many of my friends think my choce of cars is odd, but fastest isn't always the best.
