Worth the wait!

2000 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C280 4dr Sedan
This being my first luxury car, Iím very happy with my purchase. MB has just found itself a customer for life! I have the special edition with all the available options. The beefy brakes, strong engine and manual shift capabilities help make it a very involving vehicle. On the negative, though, certain people at my job now look at me differently even though Iím still the same person. Maybe itís the marque. Oh well, the joy I get from the ownership experience makes up for the attitude I deal with at work!
I particularly like the two-tone interior and carbon fiber trim. Iím no audiophile, but the Bose stereo satisfies my listening needs. I also like the automatic sound leveling. The fit & finish is faultless.
I wish the suspension were a pinch softer because itís too firm and Ďhopsí on expansion joints making me nervous. I also wish the CD changer wasnít in the trunk.
