2000 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E55 5.5 V8 from UK and Ireland
Best kept supercar secret
Bush went on wishbone, £8 bush cost £300.
Springs broke on front.
Discs and pads horrendously expensive.
ECU needs resetting often as forgets things.
Rust on wheel arches constant problem.
Performance is awesome, beats 911's - most of the time.
When driven sensibly, it returns up to 36mpg on a long run.
Nothing compares for the money, performance and economy, in a class that Jaguars can only dream of.
Expensive to maintain, but ultimately very worth it.
Quality inside, but certainly not as well built as the previous E class.
Last of the good looking Mercedes saloon cars?
This was once the fastest production saloon car in the world.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
