C230 in iridium silver
premium package
sport package
harmon/kardon sound package
7g-tronic transmission

39 month lease
$4400 in upfront costs (freight, pdi, taxes, first & last month, little down payment)
$499 / month tax included (which is really $476 since I'm leasing it under my business and I get to claim GST)

Good deal? Thoughts?

W204, that's the brand new one... whoo hoo! those are really sharp looking cars, nicest since the 202 (I don't particularly like the 203)

Only gripe with those is that i haven't seen any that come with any kind of nice wood trim in the interior, none-the-less, a nice car.

The C300 & C300 4matic comes with Burl Walnut wood trim (high gloss) as standard. - not sure if it's real wood though. ;)

I think it's a fair deal based on the specs you wrote. Not sure of the upfront costs - are these the admin, freight, etc. or just your downpayment? Did you get the 7G-TRONIC auto trans?:confused:

Wow.. Nice deal man

I got mine about 2 weeks ago.

White C230
7Gtronic Tranmission
Sportspackage
Sat radio
Heated seats

I got a demo with 1800KM on it. So no Freight/PDI, Air tax or Admin charges.

Mine is $624 (with $5001) down month with 30,000 Km's a year. 39 month term.

My amount sounds a bit high but it is so becuase I traded in a 2002 BMW 320i (Black/Black with Auto) and they had to pay around $3500 to BMW canada for my upside down negative defecit (Got 10K for a car I owed $13500 for).

Happy to be driving this puppy. How do you like the Harmon Kardon system. I really wanted this option more then anything.:( Do you feel the sound quality difference?

Oh one more thing. How is your gas millage coming along. I have been trying to read the trip computer. Which is hovering around 10.4 and 11.1 depending on which screen you look at ( Since reset and the other one)

I hate to taunt you but... the harmon/kardon system is amazing.

Like a concert hall in your car ;p

I'm planning on getting an Ipod adaptor but I hear the sound quality leave much to be desired. Too bad our C230 don't come with the PCMCIA slot >_>

Hi I am new to the site. Have been thinking about leasing the C230 as well. The agent quoted me a price of $530/ month (with no down, manual transmission, premium and sport package only). What'd you put down for your down payment? How'd you get such a sweet deal? Even with the $1,800 for the auto transmission and the harmon/kardon sound package, you still have a lower lease rate than I get quoted at...

How's the drive on the C230? Haven't seen a lot of C230 in Toronto yet, but a lot of 300 and 350. Too bad they don't have Xeon lights.

I picked up a C230 about a month and a half ago
its black on black 6 speed MANUAL!
The car is awesome , i already did 10k on it, this is including a little road trip i took to Las Vegas.
Handles very well, theres some nice bends and straight aways in Nevada on Highway 168 off of Interstate 15.
Only disappointment was the car is governed at 220km/h

Sounds like a nice economical V6, for those of us that don't want a four-banger.

Great Car!!...Love it!!

I purchased my C230 4MATIC in April '08. Got a demo with 3,000K on it for a great deal. Knocked $3,800 of the price, plus an additional discount....know the owner of the dealership :)

Gas mileage...not the best....But it's a 6 cylinder..to be expected.

Does anyone feel like the engine is sluggish....Slow to respond a little, when you give it some gas??...Read this in some reviews as well?

Thoughts?
