I'm waaaay too low on the totem pole to know when, but given the current fuel market conditions, it should make sense to someone over there. One thing's for sure, I can't wait 'till they do, that would mean an extra sale or two a week!

Nope, but might I suggest earbuds?

I now own a 2001 MB E320 4Matic. Have you had any customers switch from an E-Class to the 2008 C-Class? If so how happy have they been?

I'm a bit disappointed in the crash test results for the C-Class. Do you have a sense of how safe the car is?

I am considering ordering a 2009 because I really want memory seats. My dealer says it's too early to order but I believe you said your dealership is able to order now. When would I get a car if I order this say this week or next?

Rarely, people tend to move the other way and go for an S or CLS after being in E, if they don't buy another E. People in general are very happy with the C, though, especially when considering the technology packed in.

Very safe, though it would have been nice to see pre-tension seatbelts like your E. It is, however, a compact vehicle afterall.

About 120 days after the order, would you like me to order one for you? These kinds of things can be worked out fairly easily.

New guy here...just what kind of connections do you have, which others here I'm sure we'll be interested? Such as AMG wheels or as you mentioned earlier, HP tuner updates?

That's interesting. All European-spec C's get seatbelt pre-tensioners. Wonder why US-spec cars don't?
