Benz world nice to join- just got '12 c250 sport sedan, my first Benz

Hey benzworld I just drove home in a '12 C250. I originally went to the dealership to look an 08 c350 sport. I drove it for about five miles and it was nice but I didn't love it. The salesman got the keys to a new c250 and it was impressive. The interior is very stylish and high tech and the ride is very smooth and controlled. The turbo 1.8 is quicker than the 08 c350 sport, I'm sure of it but the numbers say differently. It does have some bad turbo lag from a stop but it will get better when the turbo breaks in. I requested a German manufactured car. The car I test drove was from south Africa. It just doesn't seem like a Benz if it's made in Africa so I requested a different model and it was made in Sindelfingen, Germany. The same plant that makes the S and E class. It is my first Benz and I'm very happy I can't wait to upgrade to an E350 in three years. Any suggestions from you experienced owners? Engine break in period?
