My New MB C63

All,

Just wanted to say hi, as this if my first time on the forum and first MB...I just put my down payment for a 2009 C63, black on black. I'm pretty excited, as well as a bit nervous, since this is the biggest "investment" I have made (and probably most foolish from a fiscal stand-point).

If anybody has any comments or feedback that will help me on my MB way, I would be very appreciative. Also, if anybody knows of any major pitfalls to the C63 that I should be wary of please advise by Tues (papers signed)...it is not too late But everything I have read tells me I am getting a hell of a good car.

Thanks and nice being here!!
Brad

Welcome to the forum.

C63's are bad ass. It wouldn't be 'foolish' to get one, as long as you don't drive it like a granny all the time. Get yourself a good radar detector, it'll pay for itself in time..

Be sure to post some pics too when you get it.

I've driven several at work and I love it. The owners appear to be very happy with the cars and as long as you dont mind changing rear tires at around 10,000 miles you'll be very happy too . I can't say that we have had any of them in for problems, just routine services.

Thanks all...appreciate the info. I have really read nothing but great things...seems like the biggest sticking point for most is the tirewear...although, there are some other tires out there with a little better tread life and almost as much grip. I had a 2006 STi with the Bridgestone Potenza's on it...although it didn't have much wheel spin (pretty hard to induce in that thing), they lasted for about 20K miles...

I am so pumped about driving this thing...I was really surprised the whif gave me the ok, since I have a pretty new Altima 3.5...I just really want to treat myself (and her of course), and I couldn't think of a better way than this.

Look forward to joining the club OFFICIALLY on 1 Apr (although I am not back in country until 10 Apr...imagine owning a C63 for 10 days before you can drive it--now that will be hard).
