Best Benz Ever!
By The Saint on
1999 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan
I love this car so much, I'm on my second one! Both have been white on black leather. First one I drove from +- 150000km right till 249000km. Was hard-pressed for a replacement car when I came across my current one - still in good knick despite being over 10 years old! (mileage 132000km) I have had this one now for a few months and it feels like dejavu! I cannot imagine driving anything else! Even the new ones don't match up to this! one snag - I might have to replace the keys/ignition! That wont be cheap! Besides that, have been a MB fan for years - also own a W123 230 E which I also love to bits! My only worry is the chafing of the steering wheel and gear-lever knob! any ideas?
carbon fibre inserts, sport suspension, road-hugging ability, the sound of the turbo kicking in, the torque, the tri-star logo looking back at you from the hood!height-adjustable seats, the white dashboard dials/clocks, high speed cornering!
longer-lasting materials: (leather around steering wheel and gear lever.
