      You mean I have to drive it myself? Heaven help us when self-driving cars are here.

      Mercedes may allow special/custom orders for its higher-end vehicles, but certainly does not allow it on the lower-end cars (CLA and C-Class). I have been thinking about a new C300 but really turned...

      Sorry if this is too personal, but what kind of work was the van used for? It doesn't look like your typical plumber's van.

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

      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.

      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:

      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...

      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...
