New to MB
Wanted to say Hi and introduce myself. I recently purchased a '13 MB C350 w/ AMG sport pkg in Diamond White and absolutely love the car. I had a BMW 335i w/ M-sport pkg on order a couple of months ago but cancelled it.
I drove the MB and was very impressed. The solidity, engineering, and stoutness of the vehicle are superb as are the dinamica/MB tec sport seats, steering wheel w/ the red stitching and red seatbelts. The interior is work of art and a great place to spend time. I love it. I also got $6k off of MSRP--so that helped quite a bit in my lease!!
I'm just breaking her in and need to get up to speed on the MB brand in general. All of the idiosyncracies of the w204. I'm a BMW afficianado at heart but you all welcome converts,right? Regardless, it will be good to be back driving german engineering again.
My previous cars include a MKVI GTI 4dr 6spd, Scion FR-S, MINI Cooper JCW GP, a 76 BMW 2002, several hondas, and an Acura TSX. I am a car nut by nature and by choice and have always wanted a Merc. I couldn't afford the C63 AMG, but hope this will be fun just the same w/ better mpg. Maybe when the CLA AMG comes out, if I have good luck w/ the brand, it will be my next vehicle. The dealer is installing the rear window spoiler in black as it will match the black roof since it is optioned with the pano-roof.
Looking forward to many miles of satisfying driving!!
Anyways, Happy to be here--
