New to me E300

Finally pulled the trigger today, 2017 E300 with P3 and sport with panoramic roof. it's white with black leather inside, warranty until 12/2023. First Mercedes for me, and wow what an incredible car. Right now I'm overwhelmed with all the features, gonna take a while to get in the groove of this car.

I was surprised to get 42 mpg on the ride home (2 hours), I was hoping for a solid 30 highway and 24-25 combined. Looks like that's gonna be achievable. So quiet and smooth, and the stereo sounds really good to me. Figured out the adaptive cruise, it's pretty remarkable how well it works.

For now, anything I should be doing, looking at when I'm getting used to it?

Congrats and good luck on your purchase. I feel in love with Mercedes for 18 years now

Congratulations, sounds like a great build! I'll keep an eye out for your car. Just saw a white 213 in the Carmel Mtn. area today, paint looks great with the DRLs.

The car is Polar White on Black Leather. It has P03 Premium 3, 421 Sport Package II, Brown ash wood, Heat & ventilated seats, and Panorama roof.

I can't find 421 sport package II on the DOG for 2017, anyone know what it is other than Sport interior, AMG exterior sport package, black headliner and AMG body cladding? Is there a Sport package 1 & 2?

I love this car, it rides amazing, the stereo sounds great, and there is an endless amount of tech to play with. The cruise control is awesome, especially in traffic, but it is weird to let the car drive itself...… Going to take a while to learn my way around. Trying to figure out how to access favorites now, I know that you can long press to add stations, but not sure how to access them quickly.

I have had several Corvettes of late and I was not as impressed as I am with this car. I am exited to go to work because I get to drive this car.

Thanks. That's if it EVER gets off the ship. I thought it was finally going to Brunswick. Turns out it's making a yet another stop at St. Simon's Island, which is on the way inland to Brunswick. According to the website for the port, tomorrow it docks there. We'll see........

It has a golf lesson at 8, so I'm guessing it's handicap is quite high! The ship is now officially at the port. I'm sure they don't unload cars at night, so it will see the light of day on US soil tomorrow.

My first fill up today, took 14.7 gallons and provided 27.3 mpg with a 50/50 mix of city and highway all in comfort mode. There was a lot of stop and go traffic. Pretty impressed!

Wondering if ECO mode will do much better or not, but I don't like the laziness of that mode.
