Greetings from Tampa

Just picked up a brand new C350 Coupe for the wife and I'm quite impressed. It was her decision, but I was rather undecided about the vehicle. We had a C300 loaner earlier this year while her Infiniti G37 was in the shop, and to be fair, I wasn't overly impressed. It was nice enough, but the controls were funky and the power was inadequate. What did strike me was the very smooth ride. But I'm a sports car guy and I like my speed. So for the moment, I had discounted the C Class.

Fast forward to 2012 and now the bizarre LCD screen no longer resides in a James Bond like secret compartment. And with the 302hp V6, the vehicle has no trouble moving in a most efficacious manner. Add a premium diamond white paint and 7 spoke AMG rims and what we have is quite an impressive vehicle indeed. I'm a little jealous of her to be honest...I'm not sure I can continue to drive around in my Avalanche at this point. If it weren't for the need for function over form, I might be at the dealership looking to trade up.

Anyway, I'm here to learn about the vehicle that I just bought, so I'm hoping there is a wealth of information here. Already have questions, so I'm going to get started in the proper forum.
