Summary:

Excellent

Faults:

Antenna mast replaced. Nothing else I haven't had the car long, but this car is so well built I think it will out last me.

General Comments:

Very good on fuel and has more power than I was expecting.

The build quality is the best I have ever seen on a car no squeaks no rattles over engineered so as to epitomes the very best.

The seats are simply superb on a long trip they are large and supportive in all the right places and the fact they are heated is the icing on the cake.

This car has exceeded all my expectations.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Agree with many of the positive comments, but do not find the seats on the E220 Cabriolet particularly comfortable at all. Yes the heating is nice, but they are hard seats with inadequate leg support, and no side support at all.

Cheers
