2007 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E500 Avantgarde 5.5L V8 petrol from Australia and New Zealand
Love this car
Brakes squeak (dealer said it's a common problem on these models, and is nothing major).
Smooth and VERY powerful. Air suspension absorbs bumps very well and it handles nicely.
The cabin consists of nappa leather, sound system is great, everything in good working order. Has a lot of gadgets to fiddle with in the car.
Overall, a huge improvement on the W210 E class and w211 pre facelift models.
Mine being the post face lift model, there have been some minor changes in interior and exterior. 5L engine replaced with the new 5.5L; surprisingly much better!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
