1st time Benz owner

Howdy, my name's Alan, and it's been 6 months since my last ...... , wait, wrong forum.

Seriously, I just picked up a 2011 c300 4matic from MB of Westminster (Colorado). Audio 20, heated seats, Sport, no premium package, black.

I never thought I would own an MB, but it was an 8 month old service loaner with 4k miles, and we got it for $30k as a CPO Mercedes. Traded in a Jeep Commander.
We're on our 4th Jaguar (an XF, great car) after an XJ8L and two X-Types.

I am looking at adding the Nav 20 system, other than that I'm happy with the car.
The feel and solidity of the Benz is great. It has good power (I'm spoiled after the V8 in the XJ8 and XF), but the power in the MB is smooth and just keeps coming.
We had a blizzard four days after buying it, and I started to worry about trading in the Jeep. But the 4matic did amazing, the MB just kept going.

All in all, I'm a very happy MB owner, and probably a convert for life now.
