Merc magazine had a piece about the revised C250cdi sport estate highlighting the changes between the new one and my 2009 version. Apart from the interior improvements most of the article was cetnred on the 7-g gearbox which was highly praised. From reading things on this forum and in particular posts about the E350 with the 7-g box I am by no means convinced that it is in fsct any beteter than the 5 speed box. Admitted ly it seems that with the 7-g and the stop start the fuel consumption is better but I seem to remmber some people slating the 7-g box. Has anyone on here driven the C250 cdi with both and if so what is the general impression?
