Love this thing. Unique form in my opinion. Just like MB doesn't have a counterpart for the F07 (nobody really does), the E350 wagon is by itself.

The one thing I did like about the F10 was the steering wheel. My steering wheel does not have the bulges at 10 and 2.

Speaking of steering wheels, as I mentioned, when I had the car reprogrammed,...

The left rear air spring was replaced at no cost. The SA said it was covered under a very recent (like this week) "recall". They reprogrammed the car since the CBS counter was running too quick on my...

Jim..to answer your "load" question, I go about 220 lbs. :)

I should also add that the vehicle info screens didn't report any faults but the ringing in my ears did.

That's great. My left rear air spring exploded in spectacular fashion in the church parking lot yesterday. Parked the car, shut it down and we were about 5 feet from the car when "BANG". Sounded like...

Mine was "squatting" quite a bit during the cold winter. Haven't noticed it much with warmer weather but I'll have it checked next month at my seemingly bimonthly brake pad CBS.

I should add that I've had a 320 for a couple of days as a loaner and there's no way I'd be happy going back into a 3er from an F07.

That's good stuff. You hit it on the head regarding which model would qualify as a F07 "junior". I thought the F34 with the 2.0 is woefully underpowered and a bit lacking in the appointments...

F36 v. F07

Jim...did you mean "full maintenance" rather than warranty? I didn't think brakes were covered under warranty. I know they weren't covered under the CPO warranty I had on my E46.
