How are you finding the Merc?
As I decided I wanted an estate/touring this time, the F31 wasn't an option.....and the F11 was waaay too big for my purposes. Call me shallow, but I also would have found it a bit difficult to stomach going back to an "ordinary" BMW...
So a complete change made more sense and, so far, I'm very pleased with it. Good performance and mpg, and a much better ride/handling set up than the standard E90's. Equipment levels are good and space slightly better, so all in all a good choice, for me.
