      After a very long search around places live availablecar etc which is a good place for rummaging we decided on the E class line estate, the magic carpet ride that you dont want to get off.

      I've just swapped by BMW 530d for the Volvo S90 R Design and I simply love it!! I think the ride quality is on par (although driving experience is not quite as crisp as the BMW). What through me was the sheer beauty of the exterior and genius of the interior. A much more comfortable and intuitive car by far.

      You are saying the 5 series is too old but isn't it tested here in the wrong class ? Shouldn't these cars be tested against the 7series BMW ?

      Mercedes is a car for old folks who like to brag and pretend a lot how classy they are...old in both interior and exterior. Young people who would choose the Merc over the BMW actually scare me. :) I drove a lot of both and owned 2 BMW's because😎
