Hi, I have been a long time BMW and ALPINA owner, I currently have a 2008 535d estate, which was a mistake. It was my first diesel, and I realise now I hate them. Love them in a boat or tractor, not in a car. I was looking for a 550i estate, but after 8 months couldn't find a single one so gave up and went for the devils fuel. Big mistake. I realised how much of a mistake when I was lent a knackered old 1999 520i estate for a day by a garage, and revelled in the silky smooth engine. I have to go back to a petrol V8 estate, so an E55 AMG seemed the only sensible choice. It will be my first MB, so I am a bit nervous, but I'm finding MBclub a great resource, thanks guys. Now if anyone has said vehicle and would be willing to pass it on please speak up!
