This is forum for DIY, so most of us do have different perspectives.
$25k can buy you lot of Mercedes, but on the other hand not that much maintenance and repairs done at stealers.
Some members who take their MB to shops are reporting spending as much as $5000 year after year, while thanks to my skill combined with this forum knowledge I am not spending more than $200 a year.
Bottom line, it is easy to buy a Mercedes having 25 grands, but how much money are you willing to put in it every year?
Coming to C-class, those are small cars. How big are you?
