My father-in-law picked up his E320 yesterday from a dealership in Oakland. It has the heating package, entertainment package, lighting package, sunroof, DVD nav, and wooden steering wheel. I was amazed by how well the car drove! We went for a ~ 30 mile drive from the sunset to Daly city and back. The handling, braking and acceleration seemed to be right on; I am now curious as to how well the E500 or E55 would perform. The quality/detail of the interior was also amazing; it looked like they put a lot of time into arranging things logically on the dash. The exterior looks very nice; interior space is plentiful. I am 6'1" and had pleanty of room sitting behind the driver's seal (adjusted for me driving). The DVD nav was fast and accurate in locating addresses and providing directions. The command system seems to be well integrated with all of its components; however, I did not see the integration with the phone (also curious about this). Does Mercedes offer any cars with Bluetooth? If yes, I may consider purchasing it later this year instead of another BMW.

As far as I know, the MBs for the US markets at this time does not have Bluetooth capability. As for the phone integration, you can buy the very expensive MB 'branded' Motorola V60i that works with the keypads and navi within the W211.

It does work pretty well ... just very expensive ... GL

You can have a selection of non-BT (also not MB branded) Nokia phones.<img src="http://members.roadfly.com/fastbuck/W211%20001.jpg" height=160 width=214>
