My sentiments exactly. I traded my 2011 BMW 335i convertible (M Sport) for a 2014 E550 cab. The BMW was clearly the performance car but it was just not as "nice" as the E550, which overall is far...

Like the 2015 E sedan, the coupe and cab will probably be downsizing their V8, (402 horsepower) E550 to the E400, 3 liter, V6 (328 horsepower).

I agree. It's just become a habit like clicking in the seat belt. No big deal.

Different Question

Does the VIN show which production number your car is? i.e. if the last 5 numbers are 12345 does that mean yours is the 12,345th car built in that class series?

Mercedes does use Port Hueneme. It's more efficient than Los Angeles/Long Beach. Cars are trucked to the VPC in Los Angeles and usually arrive at the VPC the day after the ship docks in Hueneme.

VPC in Port Hueneme?

My car is on a ship that sails by Long Beach and will dock in Hueneme. Does Mercedes have a VPC there or will the car be trucked down to LA?

I agree that the clean console looks a lot better. I looked into it and it looks like the whole console must be replaced in order to get the slide track. Bummer!

Eco Start. Bleh...

Do you mean that every time you get in the car you have to remember to turn off ECO StartStop by pushing the button? I recently rented an Audi 6 in Ireland that had that feature and HATED it!!

2014 Euro vs US Cupholders

Just ordered my E 550 Cabrio. I notice that the brochure shows a clean console with a cover for the front cupholders. It looks really good. However, all of the US '14 Cabrios I've seen don't have...
