I have owned both the C230 and now the C320, if the cost and options are close, go for the C320.

Is it really a C320 Coupe, not C230 Kompressor? The price looks unbelievably good. 8O
I'm also shopping C320, but I've got a quote more $$$ for less options. I'm trying to get the same config. as yours in CarDirect, but the target price appears to be $34,410... I wonder how you got that price. What's the secret?

Hi Hiro, I got that price from carsdirect.com, mbusa has an incentive right now, but I don't know if it's for the whole US. I'm in California, so my ZIP is from here. If you like to try it out that way, just enter 90504 as your ZIP and see if you'll get the price I'm getting. I just did it a while ago and got the same price ($29,288) for all the options I listed. Hope that helps

Hi fcastaneda, thanks for you quick reply.

For whatever reasons, I don't seem to get the same target price as yours with your ZIP. However, probably I should not look further, because I visited a dealership today and left there in a different car --- a new C320 Coupe!! :wink:

I couldn't resist... the price I got was not bad (at least to me), more options for less $$$ than yesterday from another dealership. It was below my target price $33,150, or even below their invoice (but not even close to your price). Maybe they had an incentive, which they deined though.

After all, I've got C4, C5, C7 options plus 5 speed automatic, CD changer, and metalic color. I compromised heated seat and specific color. The dealer said heated seat can be added later if the winter really bothers me. I'll see.

Now this puppy is sitting in my garage. Looks so great. I just love it. I'm planning a drive or two for this long weekend. :)

With your price, that's no brainer. I'd definitely go for it!

Thanks > C230K

I'm really happy with my C320 Coupe.

I'm holding below 3K rev for the first 1,000 miles... really looking for the day I can hit the accel to the floor! :p

Just a note on break in. DO not worry about the revs, just very them and try not to drive high rpm at a constant speed. I vary my speed on the freeway and now I have 1200 miles and time to get redy for autocross.
