My wife just got a Mercedes C230 Kompressor sport sedan.

Now we both drive supercharged cars! Too cool.

Of course I let her know not to get to cocky about it. Her car may be fancier than mine but my RL will still eat her Mercedes for lunch. ;)

congrats to u guys, thats one sweet car!

Thanks man. My wife is loving it. I drove it around for a little while yesterday and it's so sweet. The car has too many damn features to list too. One of my fave is the automatic headlights. You can leave the headlights in auto and it has a light sensor which will kick them on automatically when it starts to get dark. Also the autostick is great too when you need a little extra get up and go.


The 1.8L Supercharged engine makes it, overall, a pretty peppy little car.

The benz sports sedan is a fun car. Unfortunately, like all other benzes now, they fall apart. But maybe all of the work that they do during the warranty period makes up for that. I love that car but yeah, it isn't is fast as the redline as you said. Next time, I recommend springing for the AMG version. . .

It's a 3 year lease. My wife is a Chrysler employee (Mercedes Benz Credit to be exact) and she got one helluva deal on a lease. We don't have to worry about ANY maintenance. Free oil changes, roadside assist, loaner car in case it needs any work and you can get a free car wash anytime just by taking it to the dealer. :D


We decided on a lease because we know that maintenance on a Benz is quite expensive and if we bought one, eventually we'd have to deal with that. Plus, Mercedes was running employee specials on leases for M/B credit employees.
