First Time MB Owner

On October 10 2008 my wife and I paid off our house and she said remember your dream car, maybe you should go check it out, so a week later I was the proud owner of a 2008 Mars Red C Class Sport Edition, US model.

I must say I'm in heaven, I always dreamed of owning a Mercedes. Having frequented Europe and owned and driven a Jetta diesel, what a shame that a diesel option is not available in the US.

If they had a diesel engine available I would much rather have that option then the gasoline engine, but thats a small price to pay.

right on, hope you like your new car!! i owned a jetta before too, they are great cars but not nearly as nice as a MB. they are kinda similar cars though, feels like it could be the same sized chassis just doesn't have all the amenities. good luck with your car, keep it clean!!!
