Default New C Class

http://www.mbusa.com/microsite/c-class/index.jsp#index

Check it out, it's supposed to be out in America within a month or two but its already out in Germany and other parts of the world. I'm looking to get a C300 Sport with the 6 speed manual pretty much as soon as its available because my car was hit pretty badly recently and insurance estimated the cost to repair will be about $3800 which is insane so I need a new car, I really like this new W204 C class, I just hope Mercedes has fixed the quality issues which have plagued the W203 C class of which there are over a dozen in my family.

Very nice, but as you mentioned, i would do some research, and hold off buying it, to make sure all the issues have been worked out.

Mercedes admits the suspension is for the most part carried over from the last model (except the sport version?). The engines seam like the same architecte, but I haven't read up on them; I would imagend the modernized Mercedes did something under the hood.

I must say, it looks very nice, but I think I like the E90 BMW.

I work at a merc dealer in New Zealand and we have several of them on demo. Thou I have only driven the C220 CDI so far Which drives VERY nicely. MUCH better than the C320 CDI. 40 of them was imported into the country. ALL were sold on the release day apart from ones on demos. There is a VERY long waiting list for them.

Not bad, but the car I am really looking forward is the Audi A5/S5. I wish more companys would release more 2 door coupes for those of us who don't have to haul around kids everywhere.

I jumped the gun and bought an '07 328i, now I'm seriously starting to regret that because the new C is so amazing in person, such a good looking car with the AMG sport package too....
