It was 60,990 on the sticker when I drove it.

This is the first modern E class Iíve driven. It is really quite nice; not sport tuned but comfortable and quick and with decent handling. It reminds me of the E61, though with the air suspension you can select firmer and better damping.

The massage seats seem like an excellent road trip idea, and the active bolsters are kind of ridiculous but also kind of nice.

Itís a gorgeous color, too.

Iím not super in the market for a car like this, but itís pretty hard to imagine a better road trip car. And I cannot for the life of me understand how someone buys a GLE over one of these.

Nice find! And happy to help. It was a nice day for a blast out to Sterling in the convertible.

Apologies for the Stuka-esque pics; was trying to grab some details.

Note the mood scent in the glovebox. I didnít try that, mostly bc I didnít have time to figure out how (and after checking to make sure the car didnít smell
Funny I was wearing a mask anyway).

If forgotten that they went and ruined so now you have to buy the E63. I wonder if the new version actually sells at all?

Are you talking about the 2021 "All Trac" or whatever, the jacked up version is now. I'm surprised they went that route, the pre-facelift verstion was just about perfect.

We crossed out posts. Score, Josh! The scent thing is weird, but, whatever! Wagons rule, as we all know. Plus, I think your wife is something specialóyou obviously found your soulmate.
