Yesterday evening (08/27/2007) I brought the brand new 2008 Mercedes Benz C300 sports sedanÂ from Smythe European Benz Dealer. I was waiting for this model since few months as this is a brand new third-generation C-class body styleÂ which replaces the existing second-generation C230, C280 and C320 models.I just brought the base model (Steel Gray Metallic with Black interior) with the following options:
I also wanted a ipod integration kit, which might be installed in later stage as Mercedes is still working on the support. The only package that was missing is the multimedia packagewith navigation and 450 watt harman/kardon 12 speakers. But to get this package, I have to wait for another 2-months.
I was tossing between Lexus 2007 IS250 and this model since couple months as IS250 has extra features like nice sound system, touch based navigation, backup camera, ventilated leather seats for almost 2K less than the C300. But anyway finally opted for Mercedes over Lexus.
