I have to say I wasn't much of a fan of Mercedes-Benz until I drove this C-Klasse. Except for the little SLK and the SL, most of their models looked a bit "meh" for me. Plus, I always thought most of their clients were either young drug dealers or old pervert business men. I dig neither category, so sorry if I'm disappointing anyone.
The bright side is that I only stand by my preconceptions until I actually get to experiment what I strongly oppose. Which reminds me of a little story about a bag of Mary Jane... wait, nevermind. Quick! Back to the Benz!
While at first I didn't actually like the hip-hop color, later I began to appreciate the fact that it manages not to heat up as much as other cars in the sun. Which of course is a good thing for a car that's neither a convertible, nor does it have that fancy tri-zone climate control you guys were talking about in standard.
The other bit I really enjoyed was the automatic transmission, which was free of the jolts I experienced in other cars when shifting between gears. On the whole, it's quite a comfortable car, and if it wasn't for that oversized Mercedes-Benz star - which at first I thought you guys lifted from a Benz truck as a joke or something – reigning in the middle of the grille I would like pretty much everything about it.
Oh, I almost forgot about those two little LED strips in the front bumper, which really transform the car from a serious executive sedan into something more evil-looking. I never thought I would ever say "white" and "evil" in a sentence about a car... hmm... must be that Mary Jane kicking in...
