8 months ago I purchased my 1997 C280 with 138,000 miles on it and I love this car. Since then I've driven 10,000 miles and have enjoyed every one of them. Everyone who drives it says how fast it is at any speed, and even my wife enjoys driving it. Drives and handles like a dream.
8 speaker Bose sound system. Those Mercedes brakes. Cup holders. Handling.
Small back seat. (but better then the 3 series BMW)
