I've had the E-Class over 3 years now, still no immediate desire to change. I've covered approx 23,000 miles in it (approx 42,000 miles on the clock now).

So far I've had 2 glow plugs go (had the whole lot replaced) and a lower ball joint replaced also. Other than those its been perfect only needing servicing, pads and tyres.

It flew through its 3rd MOT again last week so I treated it to a full wheel refurbishment at the WheelSpecialist on Wednesday as the wheels had a fair amount of corrosion on them (rears especially).

Following that I've just given it a full polish and wax before the winter sets in.

Looking spot on. Testimony to owner and car I would say and strictly in that order.

Great to hear something positive.

Nice looking car, I actually prefer the 2 single exit exhausts each side to the 4 on the AMG, I think just 2 suits the shape of the car better.

I can't decide whether to get a carbon boot spoiler for it or not.
