A quick plan came up between me and a friend of mine--we're gonna be heading down to Miami next week. We havent decided whether I should take the 300E, or he should take his 99 E320. Its going to be a long trip (approx 1,300 miles) one way, so we might take the E320. Although I would love to drop by in Georgia and let Benzmac service my baby.

My questions now...

Any good recommendations on eats, hotels, and maybe MB-techs just in case we need one along I-95?

We plan on blowing the whole day and try on driving straight through, although I know we'll be dead tired and have to crash somewhere along I-95 (approx 22 hour drive from NYC).

Approx. 1/2 way from NYC to Tampa FL (not Miami) is the center of NOrth Carolina, aka Raleigh, however I-95 does not go through Raleigh, but a town called Smithfied, around 30 miles straight due east.

Smithfield, I forget the exit # off I-95, 14 comes to mind, had tons of shops outlets, i.e. Tommy Hilfiger and also has a few decent restaurants (nothing great) for tourists and shoppers driving through.

Raleigh is where the closest MB dealership lies, from my recollection. It is called Leith, mediocre service at best.

Yikes! Hate to see the words "dead" and "crash" used in this forum when referring to a raod trip. How about "fatigued" and "be rejuvinated"? Anyways, have a great (and safe) trip -- sounds like it'll be fun
