2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)
I traded in my '03 G35 for this little gem. Not as fast as the G35, but a wonderful, solid feel. Extremely well made, great handling, and MUCH better gas mileage. I'm much less likely to get speeding tickets, yet I'm really enjoying driving this exceptional car. The "Tiptronic" manual shifting is much better, quicker, than in the G35.
Great road feel - wonderful suspension.
The CD changer takes up too much room in the glove box.
