E55 still beats the cdi... just...
I know which I'd rather drive and it's not the diesel...

A W210 from 1998 to early 2000s.... really...? And braking performance is irrelevant in this context.

FWIW I'd rather have that nice E250... you can overtake me while I listen to Radio 3 cruising at 65mpg :p

If we're being serious, this test is a little more relevant - the diesel loses, and it's not even against an M5.

Hi , drove a Mercedes E55 yesterday and found the it a great car to drive.

However , I did find the 40-70 mph overtaking power lacking and rather unnerving.

The car has been well looked over with a full MB / indie service history.

Is this normal or a problem.
E55 should be quick at those speeds!

My experience of supercharged cars is that they usually don't feel as quick as turbo cars due to the way the power is delivered. looking at the speedo was always a shock.... but I'm guessing this wasn't the issue here?
