"This vehicle is not as large as a S class, but it rides, handle and performs like one at less dollars. This E 500, compare to our E320, is like night and day. The suspension of air, and its three modes of driving perference make this vehicle feel solid, and heavy on the road. It is overall I feel one of the best cars I have ever own. I would only consider a E550, without any hesitation just because of its power and suspension system. The BMW 5 series may be a driver car, but the mercedes is strong competition with a touch of suddle class and pestige."
