Great car, looking forward to some pictures & driving experiences.

Delhi dealers are not offering (committing) delivery before 31st March :-( How come you managed to get delievery in Feb ?? How long after booking did you need to wait ?

Enjoy the car !!

Cheers

Congratulations on your Merc! Regarding the reverse gear slot, I understand your explanation on how R is to be activated. For that type of R slot, i pull the gear to the extreme right as for 5th, and with a little more thrust in addition to the pull back force of the gearshift to the center poistion, i push it to the extreme left and it goes to the R slot.

Post up some pics of the Merc!

Yes the 325 comes with xenons and park assist as well as the entire 5 series range.

But MB is stingy with HID's, even the mighty S-class doesnt come with them as standard !

Congrats on the new ride xtr. The new "C" looks super cool and sporty. I love the smooth lines.

If you are into handbrake turns, 180's, drifting etc, this would take some time to master. . Careful not to use this as a dead pedal. (just jokin)

I've seen a couple of merc's with the sports grille (big tri-star) and no mounted logo and they look damn hot. Like guess has mentioned, an AMG bumper set (F+R) can probably highlight the looks to another level.

All the best. Do post a detailed review in some time. Drive safe. and i have to say this again - love the new C man.

Get a sports grill ,it takes C class to different level ,then only it stands next to 3 series ( my opinion )

congrats on the new car! did you consider the 3 series as well before deciding on the new c? what made you choose the c? i think both grills look good, but i guess the grill with the embedded star will be less of a cause of concern, especially when its parked in public places! personally, i dont think it looks good without a nice body kit to go with =) looking forward to some more pics, and a detailed test drive!

Thumbs up pics

Guys, Really sorry for the long delay in posting the pics.

I got the AMG grille and here are the pics with the grille on. I'm never going back to the normal grille

Shown in the pics is also the bluetooth system and the COMAND control.
