Previous weekend i got my hands on a E270 CDI (Avantgarde), 2004 Merc to drive from isb to lhr at night time. I am not a fan of leather seats although over all they improve the looks of the interior alot but less comfortable. anyways the electronic gizmo's where fun but the main thing was being a diesel car the acceleration was not less then a petrol car.
on a flat patch of motorway i touched 215km/hr then my friend sort of got scared and i did not push it any furhter
Factory specs say 170bhp and 0-60 in 9 seconds.The torque is never ending specially when i used to push for from 100mph to 120 mph the acceleration refused to stop!
