This car has far exceeded my
expectations for a lower end Merc.
Its absolutely wonderful to drive.
Deliberate at slow speeds, aggressive
with optimized shift points, growl,
with more torque than a BMW 330i which
I was going to buy. Much better
looking ride and a dealer who deals.
Middle aged men and women stare at car
commenting daily. Safety is unreal.
Acceleration and torque are all you
really want. Interior is fantastic
with blue, red, orange, white panel
lights. Quiet and smooth. Harmon
Kardon stereo is thumpin'!
Shift mechanism for manual mode moves
from left to right as opposed to up
and down which I like better on the
BMW but with the shift points
optimized under normal sport driving
mode there is no need to use shift.
