Yes, I too, love looking down at the car from my garage landing. My wife comments on how many people check out my car as we're driving thru town -- you'll learn to love that too.
Welcome to the club! We just purchased ours on Saturday and all I want to do is drive it, wash it, drive it, wash it... My poor wife, she's going to feel neglected! Actually, she gets to commute with it, I get to drive it on the weekends (fun time!). The six speed is a BLAST! Thanks, Keyes European (Van Nuys) for actually ordering a six speed with some equipment on it. Ours has the C5 package and the 17" wheel upgrade package. Most dealers seem to think that anyone buying a manual transmission car is only interested in saving money. Can't wait for our first road trip!!
just got mine too and I can hardly contain myself. Are you able to find anyone who is as enthusiastic though. Most people smile a little and say "oh good for you " ah well I still have a smile on my face after a week
True, but I just figure it's a case of Mercedes Envy. I feel like I have to justify our purchase. I just say, 'It's about the same cost as an Altima or Camry, hmm, Altima, Mercedes, tough decision...' Most people don't realize how affordable a MB can be. 8)
