I just returned from the Philadelphia auto show and came away from the Mercedes display a bit disappointed. I sat in a $55K E-Class sedan and the wood, and please let me be mistaken, looked an awful lot like plastic. I looked at the ashtray and it was black plastic underneath. I expect to see this type of thing in a Caddy or Lincoln, but a Mercedes? I liked the new S-Class. The one at the show was a S600 for 115,000 large ones. It had rear power seats and ceiling mounted vanity mirrors for the rear passengers. I think nicest car was the E-Class wagon, in German silver of course.
Please tell me I was mistaken about the wood and that MB hasn't gone the old Caddy route of laying down acres of PCV wood.
