I've signed up for this event in Washington D.C. I went to a Lexus sponsered "Luxury redefined" SUV event a month ago and had a blast. Hope this is similar!

yea, this seems to be a trend now. Saab is throwing a large "proving grounds" event, Volvo has a track driving event to introduce their new R's, and now Benz is doing it. I missed the Volvo. Will try to go to Saab's. Signed up for Benz's but not yet sure if my schedule will work out.

Yup....I'm actually doing the Mazda one as well. It looks like a total blast.

BTW....I missed the Volvo R one too. :( I love that car!

Going at the end of the month, let you know the fun factor. Had a go at the "R" at my friends dealership, a wagon, one sweet machine. DO not think the wife will trade her S60 2.4T and I will not give up my Coupe, oh well :lol:

Yes, the car is completely loaded, plus the great sound system and seats. I would not trade my S60 2.4T, for the money and what you get, drive one and then you will know. I was also liked their SUV, but I enjoy driving the cars, drive a commuter Van 185 miles a days, so it"s nice to drive the cars.

In regards to the S60 R, I totally think it's worth it! I am expecting delivery of that beast in the fall. Volvo already has my $1000 deposit and I think the 330's days are limited!

Good choice, having driven for the past 20 years, they only get better. dHad a drive in a "R" wagon this past week, what a blast. If I did not like my C320 Coupe, woould have one tomorrow. I do have the S60 2.4 T so I am happy.
Good luck, what Color did you get, they have a silver one here in Daytona, my friend owns the dealership.

I wish! I had to pay full price for mine and I was happy for it! Some dealers are charging a "market adjustment" tag-on of $2000 to $3000 for the R.

man... that is already an expensive car, although i do understand it has tremendous value.

by the way, as far as driving - is C240 sedan a totally different animal than the C230 sedan? I recently drove C240, and I hated how it drives.

Just got back from the C spot event. It was really cool. Pro race car driver took me zooming around a track in a C 32 amg. What a blast. Then drove a C320 K around a course. Amazing how if you slam on the brakes going around a corner how you stay in control. The whole event was a hoot.
