Surprised you didn't just go for the full AMG.... C63
Haha. IMO I don't need that much HP. I think this car has the equal balance of style and elegance and power... and substantially less than the C63

You don't know that he very well could have. He only said he picked it up we still don't have proof. Pictures with bacon or it didn't really happen. That is the only way to prove things on Acurazine.

Guess you better be stopping at the store on the way home then. You need a waffle and bacon mercedes symbol replacement slapped on the front of the car for pictures.

Beautiful car. I love the seats and red stitching with red belts. Like Tyler I was thinking hey he skipped out on the waffes, butter, and bacon. However, you delivered.

I have no idea! I browsed through the 400 page owner's manual yesterday and the entertainment system has a separate 200 page manual!

I'm going to take some time out to play with the car and try to figure everything out.

Wow, that's a really nice car! How does the interior room compare to the TL? Is it fairly decent on gas (I know, shouldn't ask, but I'm curious), or are you having a bit too much fun driving it?

Just to pick a nit, only things I'd change, with the roof/mirrors being black, I'd go for the black front lip/rear diffuser/side trim & spoiler (night package?). Love the contrast on the white.

In the front it's basically the same. The TL has more rear room but I rarely ever have people in the back.. mainly the dogs. And surprisingly it is good on gas.. 21 city, 28 hwy, avg 24. I averaged 19 in my TL. But I'm sure I will avg less for the first few weeks will I have fun with it. I keep it in Sport+ mode most of the time.

I think the tinted windows and black window lining and side view mirrors and wheels are enough. The night package was a ridiculous price. I remember seeing a 2017 C-300 w/ sport and night package for the same price as a 2017 C43 AMG. Not even a close choice.

Looks awesome in white; although, if you're ocd as I am, get ready for the 4 to 5 day hand wash intervals

Congrats once again

Those slots are gate/garage pass holders. You know how some garages and gates use a card to open them that you tap on a little box thing to open them? That is what those slots are for, to hold that gate pass or even business cards.

That's not bad economy
Night package must have changed recently. On a C43, it's $200 & looks like it's just the front splitter in black.

Is that the 9-speed AT with AWD (4MATIC)? If so, wondering about your impressions about the driving dynamics and gear selection. With so many gears it's amazing that the tranny knows which one to select in any given situation.

Also, I see you've still got the TL in the stable. Guess the dealer wasn't offering you much for it, eh?

I actually test drove the 2017 model with the 9 speed. Unless you are a gearhed or writer for Car and Driver who test drove both the 17 and 16 models and can feel every little thing, you'd have no idea of any difference. I personally thought both the 7 and 9 speed were great; I couldn't tell a difference.

I've already got 2 options week to sell the TL to. Should be gone by tomorrow.
