I have one for running up and down motorways and lugging stuff around. It's not fast but plenty powerful enough for most situations. I had an F10 530D and it isn't as quick as that car and the engine in the BMW is better (6 over 4 always is) but for what the car is built to do the E220 is fine. For me it's a different league to a Cupra thingy but I have a weekend car for fun so don't need a car that does both. The E Class is a lovely place to be, to sit in and drive around it. It removes you nicely from the day to day noise and effort of driving and is a great wafter. It's not dynamic, it's not fast, but it's a great all rounder and a lovely daily drive.
