Well, I have now taken delivery of my new E250 coupe. It has only got 100 miles on the clock and the reset computer is showing 44mpg. This is about what my C Class Estate showed and allowing for that car's 5% optimistic computer, it does not appear to me that the E coupe is anywhere near the expected 28% improvement in consumption that the respective MB issued figures purport to state. I know the E is a tight engine but to be fair the C never really improved to any great degree from new! Something I overlooked when choosing the car was where my map books etc are to be stowed. My C Estate had plenty of storage including some on the backs of the front seats. The Coupe has none on the back of the front seats. The door pockets are too small to get anything more than a few inches high in them. Also the central storage box is not so useful as it has usb connections within it and the small central storage compartment is useless due to its having a couple of moulded cup-holders in it. Anyone else with an E coupe come up with a solution to this?
