I bought this car at a local stadium tent sale the day that I started my first business out of school. I drove this car 80,000 miles and 6 years of my life. When I was asked to join one a clients dealership as AGM, I sold the car and closed that chapter of my life.
2007 Mercedes-Benz C230 Sport (Black)
I loved the seat on this car! I had black leather (not mb tex) interior and it was awesome! I loved the button layout and driving position. I did have to have the whole rear seat replaced once, and removed and cleaned three times. I got myself a German Shepherd Puppy. While Addison loved riding in the car, and would behave a perfect lady, she began to exhibit a genetic disorder which lead to some bowel trouble. Suffice to say, perforated leather acts like a play-doh strainer...
The car was the pride of this youngster. I made it shine like a mirror. The only damage to the whole car was a matching set of bumper rashes, the right side from my mother, and the left from my sister. I never really forgave them for that :-p
I wired in the aux audio connection so I could have iPod in the car. To hell with paying all that money for that simple function.
Wheel and Tire
I always bought Sumitomo HTR Z II's because of the staggered size and my tendency to.... drive spiritedly. I could get through two sets of rear tires for every one set of front tires. These were soft, had great grip and were cheap. I got exactly the same life out of them as I did the Continentals that came on it. Your experience may vary. Oh, they were loud....
