    Hi All!

    New around here and currently drive BMW X5 E70 3.0 and VW Phaeton 3.0 V6 TDI 4 Motion.

    I am thinking on pulling the trigger on a 2013 Merc E250cdi BlueEfficiency Sport with AMG trim with 28k FMBSH for £13,700 Any advice or opinions on this is greatly appreciated.

    Pete.

    I would go for the facelift 2014 i think 2013 will be pre-facelift?

    I actually prefer the pre-facelift - stick an AMG grill on it - lovely !

    Think I will but is there anything I need to be aware of/worried about? This will be my first Merc having owned a few Lexus's (or should that be Lexi?) and BMW 5 series as well as other Japanese Marques in the past ...

    Go for the E350 though for that sort of money it will more likely be a 12 plate..

    Hi,

    I would do but need something a little more economical for the 80 mile round trip each day. I believe the 250cdi is a twin turbo job so not lacking in a little grunt?

    Yeah apparently it's a good engine though not as quiet or refined as the 350.

    Not sure how much better on juice it would be on motorways. I think the E350 on a a motorway gets about 46MPG

    Apparently 55mpg is possible?

    Well, only gone and done it and am now a proud owner of a 2013 W212 E250cdi BueEfficiency Sport AMG Line and must say, it looks the biz. Only problem now is juggling the 3 cars on the drive ...
