I would agree.  If you’re looking for some really nice, well appointed 
transportation, the W220 is a good choice.  Later is always better, as the 
Chrysler influence gets less and less as time goes on.

My youngest, the W140 snob, turned up his nose the first time he got into the 
car. “Pleather?!?  Wow, Dad, that’s really lame.”

Sadly, he’s right.  It’s appointed nicely, but for those of us who understand 
the detail and quality of materials used in earlier models, it’s pretty awful.  
I would liken it to a Mercury Sable in some respects.  And it looks pretty much 
like one, too.

There are some nice features and it is very comfortable.  That’s pretty much 
where the similarities end with prior models.
