This car is the real deal, and noone was initially more skeptical than me- the only reason I own it now is purely due to my cynical curiosity of what type of car MB could offer for 25k and one drive sold me. I was waiting for the 24 valve vr6 GTI but I fast forgot about it. The C230 provides an excellent mix of ride/handling, quality, utility, value and panache that I found irresistible.
C7 package- wheels/tires, short throw shifter that MB for some bizarre reason chose not to mention as a package component. The look. The looks it gets. What other car in this class is RWD?
Better sounding, a little more powerful engine. An in-dash CD!!!!! A more tasteful interior cloth pattern. uh...
