    Well my s211 E320cdi (53-reg) has caused many, many problems in the first 6 weeks of ownership.....as many of you know....to the point where I started to hate it.....I kind of brought a Lemon!!

    Today I drove it 180 miles from cold (so had a few miles of rough gears changes) and had a very heavy foot!

    90% motorway and 10% town driving, with 25 mins stuck in traffic on the M25.

    I averaged 44.3mpg !!! Well that was on the ODB.....I was always in the 3rd lane and the car was in its element.

    This thing is a real cruiser/bruiser !!

    I love it today !

    One of the best looking cars to enhance any driveway. Hope you're keeping it polished :D

    Seriously, hope you get to drive it soon, but in the meantime take comfort from just owning it :thumb:
