Hi everyone! After sitting on the side benches for several months, I finally decided to join this forum and tap in on the wealth of knowledge BenzWorld members have to offer.
I've finally saved enough money after working very, very hard for the past 18 months to buy a brand new Mercedes. I know 2012 is an exciting year for new model releases and refreshes, so I'm torn between different models. From the Merc marque, I've narrowed it down to 3 choices; the 2012 SLK 350, 2012 C63 AMG, or the 2012 E350 Petrol. All 3 models are coming to the same price range when optioned to my liking, and are similar to insure.
My problem is not knowing what car would work best for me. I'm 24 years old, live in Alberta, and started my own PR
firm 2 years ago. I know the E-class is geared towards people my parents age (50 years+), but it's tech gadgets remind me of an S-class. The C63 is a monster on wheels and fun to drive, but it's still considered a "C-class", or entry level Benz. The SLK350 is a nice redesign, but it's compact size might not make it practical for everyday use. I plan on using whichever car I purchase as a daily driver, even in the prairie winters with snow tires.
I really value your opinions and input in helping me make a decision, and look forward to hearing your solutions to my quagmire. Thanks guys!
