I agree that the W210's drive more like an Acura or a Lexus than MB's of old.

The steering is much, much lighter, and so is the accelerator pedal input. The pedal feel is very light and less linear, with a lot of tip-in.

My mother has a 1999 E430, and I have to admit that I enjoy driving it very much. It's also nice having a cupholder.

My advice is to drive one of each. Nothing replaces a seat of the pants drive.

Oh, the W124's also have recirculating ball, not rack and pinion like the W210's.
