Downhill with a tailwind? I get over 20 MPG in pretty much 50-50 mixed city/highway driving in my S430. The SL500 can do the same with the hardtop on. Dan On Jun 28, 2015, at 2:39 PM, Kaleb C. Striplin via Mercedes mercedes@okiebenz.com wrote: I have never seen close to that in a e320

I believe that's the same color as my 1997. But mine has its hood star and all it's jack hole covers. I guess I'm jaded, but when somebody says it's one of the nicest around and there's a hole where the star belongs... OTOH, for $3k what do you expect? Mitch. On June 27, 2015 at 8:37 PM Dan
