    Hi- in about 10 days I will be the proud owner of the above- I have however been spooked a bit by seeing some Mercs nr me really struggle on the ice in recent days- this prompted me to probe more and some owners apparently don't even take theirs out the garage in those conditions!
    Seems ridiculous! How bad are they- appreciate RWD but surely they are not the death trap that some are saying???
    Are they purely a fair-weather drive?
    Would appreciate some guidance and also some pros of the car I will be getting-

    They are terrible in the snow and ice. If you have any sort of gradient to get up from standstill they can be useless if you have RWD.

    Fit some winter tyres though and all will be well. There is loads and loads and loads of info on here on this subject
