      Are you communist or a union member by chance? Competition is always good in a free market.

      Will this have the "bleeding seats" featured on the new W205 Mercedes C-Class?

      It's called "we ran out of ideas". I hate it too, seems everyone is also doing this now.

      1. 'Naked' steel wheels that people think look cool. Reality is the hubcap that you are supposed to put on top of the steel wheel also looks hella crappy and...

      Supply/demand. It is after all the middle of winter, so not shocking prices are what they are.

      I'm not seeing a lot of "silver plastic" or a "giant glossy plastic slab" as you say here...perhaps you need to actually sit in one? BTW, there is very little "plastic" used at all in the dash. ...

      The new C-Class interior is hands down the highest quality interior in the segment. I didn't say "coolest" or "best designed" but the materials are worthy of a $100k car.

      You must daily drive a...

      Hi folks, OP here. My wife strongly prefers the new C-class interior and I agree it's pretty much a home run. But then I start to do research and come across stuff like this:

      "Bleeding Seats"...

      A few edits and clarifications:

      1. I don't necessarily want or care for leather seating. MB-tex, Sensatec, etc. are fine. One issue I have is some sense of forcing me into leather seats to get...
    12. Advice needed - C300, A3, 328i, or something else?

      [Warning - Long]

      My wife and I are in the market for a new(er) car, coming now from a 15 year old Stage II B5 S4. The S4 has been a good (not great) car, and I've tried to keep on top of...

      Almost all AMG models are out of the question because their fuel economy sucks...Try 12 city / 19 highway for the E55 and E63 models.

      A tuned CLA45 will get you over 400hp and 31 highway MPGs...

      Looks great!

      What's the aftermarket and performance potential like for these? Seems to be limited to ECU and exhaust upgrades?

      Yes, I'm serious. This is my only car and I'm not tearing the dash apart myself. I also doubt I'll own it for more than another year so It's financially difficult to sink even more into it.

      Why...
    17. Ghetto heat - anyone have experience with a power inverter and space heater?

      The heat on my B5 S4 is pretty crummy, and getting worse every year. I flushed the heater core last fall with CLR and it helped for a few weeks. I have the dreaded heater core problem which like...

      Uh no. It has a bright yellow roll bar, windshield stickers, and a douchey carbon fiber hood for starters. No a sleeper by any stretch.

      I'll bet the majority of people that like this new age crap are under 30.

      I'm pushing 40 and agree 100% with OP. This stuff looks like a child's toy vs. an automobile. I'd be embarrassed to pull...

      Looks like the "borrowed" the patterned/stitched seats from Mercedes:
