213,000 km here also a manual and it is a good car, with the manual. I would expect the clutch to last 400K km. Probably the B200 is not a good choice with the CVT, given the known issues.

I'm still seeing average 7.1L per 100kms on the highway. 8ish in the city. Still awesome on gas and I don't need a hybrid Thank god!

Agree, That was one of the main reason for buying mine. Manual! I hate CVT trans. They are seem to be garbage from any company and just don't last.

I just wish benz would offer the new E AMG estate in a manual! That would be a heavenly car for me. Everything I love. I have 4 kids so I need room for them when I blow by corvettes

I am very impressed with my CVT's performance with the turbo. It always seems to be in the right range for passing, going up and down hill. Otherwise I'd prefer the manual. The CVT on a couple of low end Subrarus, Nissans and Jeeps (Patriot/Compass) are pretty bad unless your expectations are low.

If I don't go with the GLK (up to '15) as my next, I'd gladly go back to another '11 B200 but with manual.
