I had a F11 530D Auto, then the CLS350 CDI and I much prefer the BMW engine/gearbox combination. I couldn't really fault the Merc, I had no reliability issues and it was a very relaxed cruiser just not 'sporty' at all. Then there was the flappy paddles which just did their own thing no matter what I selected.
