What kind of tires are on the car? Are they runflats? Do they match front and rear? Also what are the condition of the wheels?

that's a nice looking car and condition is good.
they are asking 3k more but will probably sell at 1.5k profit.
In the end it's fair, they have a location and giving 90 days warranty, financing option etc.

As everyone asked, what are you getting?

Thanks guys. I got something a little more age appropriate for me. The E92 was my middle age crisis car :-) I got a 2012 C300 Sport 4Matic, Palladium Silver, pretty much loaded. The E92 was a great car and I had a lot of fun with it and belonging to this forum; I'll continue to troll here. My wife is still driving her 1er.
Raja - I may look to you for some front end paint protection soon.

Staggered 18" Michelin PS IIs, non-runflats. 3 have about 3k miles on them, 1 rear has about 300 miles on it. Great tires.

Nice new car - curious to get your thoughts on the C300 - The new ones look great, arguably better than stock 3'ers. Did you get a good deal?

I have been driving the C300 for almost a week. Initial thoughts:

1) The "touch and feel" seems to be a bit more upscale/luxurious than the Bimmer.
2) Quality seems substandard to the Bimmer. The best thing I liked about the Bimmer was absolutely no squeaks or rattles. I have a few with the Benz. In fact, it is back at the dealership right now having some things looked at.
3) The drive is smooth and quiet, but there is no feel for the road. Definitely not a sports car. The steering is loose and not nearly as responsive as the E92, but then again, it is a sedan not a sports coupe.
4) Harmon Karmon surround sound sucks! Sounds like an AM radio. This is also being looked at today.
5) It is stylish for a sedan and aftermarket products are available.

All in all, I am happy with it. I got a great deal at Chantilly. Their prices are the best in the area by far! I sent them an email saying this is the car I want, this is what I want for my car, no haggling. The responded with an offer $275 short of what I wanted. Obviously I took the deal.

Oh, and 6) The BenzWorld forum is not nearly as active or fun to read as this forum!

wow....I'm struggling here.....thinking of that phase your mother would tell you when you were young....about saying something positive.....yada, yada.

your 328 WAS/IS really nice.

I went from BMW to MB once....and it was an AMG....not going back. Very different than a BMW.

If you like long distance driving, well you got the right car. Good luck with it...
