New C300

Good Morning everyone.

New to this forum, but not new to c class. Just picked up my new '09 C300 sport (Black, Black MB-Tex, P1, MM and ipod) last weekend and to say that I'm thrilled with it would be a gross understatement. Each time I take it out I love it more than the last. This was also the case with my '05 C230 Komp Sedan, which I bought new and traded for the 300. The new design, the improved ride, the toys make for a wonderful improvement on an already great model.

I have a few care questions if I may:

1. The dash being a flat "grainy" surface seems to collect dust a bit more than the previous model, other than a "California duster" does anybody recommend any cleaning wipes etc?

2. Brake pads are very dusty, which I'm sure will lessen as they break in, has anybody had any luck with a spray on cleaner, that actually removes brake dust, without a lot of elbow grease?

3. Has anybody added the 3 piece spoiler to the rear end? How about the roof spoiler?

Looking forward to being part of the c300 ownership group.

Thanks for the suggestions. I'm certainly loving the car and interesting in learning a lot about upgrades and care. I like the idea of installing the back up cam....but not sure if I'm brave enough..


I plan to, although I think I'm going to crash it if I'm not careful... I'm spending so much time looking at the Command screen while I rip cd's to the hard drive, play with the nav, etc....that I've found myself hitting the shoulder a couple of times.:eek: What does the initial warning say?? "do not let the command distract you from the road" or something like that.
