R is on its way back - New car just arrived
« on: 07 October 2016, 21:10 »
Hey guys, as much as I absolutely love my R, the same practicality issues surround it now as it did when I handed back the Jag. The boot still isn't big enough, the 3 doors just doesn't work with 2 baby seats and although not a big issue, the MPG isn't great when you do 25K a year.

Instead of looking to replace the R with something the is similar, I went a completely different direction.

So hello to the W213 Mercedes Benz E-Class E220d Premium plus

The car is ridiculously comfortable, has almost every toy going and shift well enough for a big car. 0-62 in 7.3 and 72mpg from a 2.0d engine

600w burmester stereo
Keyless entry and hands free tailgate
Twin Panoroof
Heated front and rear seats
Reversing and 360 camera
DVD player
SSD satnav system and storage
Wifi hotspot
Multi beam LED lights (seriously googles these, its bloody mental!)
Command online system
64 ambient light colours system

It's not comparable to the R in any way. I still love my R and would chose to drive that over the merc when I'm alone, but needs must!

Surely the boot of the merc would even less practical. Nice car though.

It's absolutely massive! The saloon boot is 540L with the seats up, to put that in perspective the A6 Avant has 560L
