I want to preface this by saying I absolutely love the exterior of the C300 and did test drive it prior to buying my Lexus (IMO, much more bang for the buck as far as interior and packages). But yes, I would look at the CTS. The CTS is much more luxurious than the Benz on the inside. Right now the CTS is only available in a sedan, but a coupe is coming out for 2010. Depending on your price range, also consider the CTS-V. It has a Corvette block engine (LS3), 6.2L V8 with 500+hp (sorry, I have to run or I'd find the exact number). I can give you more specifics about the CTS later if you want. You can email me from my profile.

thank you for the input. Yes the CTS is very nice inside,,, would you go for a 2009 or wait for a 2010. I hold on to my cars for at least 6-7 years and only put on about 5000 miles or less a year. what about GM reliability?

I own an 07 Hummer H3 & I'm not sure if it's b/c it's a Hummer or if all GM vehicles get this kind of love, but they're the most accommodating people I've ever met. They'll give you a loaner on-the-spot for an oil change, much less anything else. I took my car in for a few minor things, and the warranty is up-to-par with the best. I know this is a MB forum, but if anyone's ever interested in buying a Chevy/Hummer in the Chicagoland area, swing by the Woodfield location. They really are the nicest car-people EVER.
...on with the MB talk, lol...

I think your question is really for Shinakuma.

Here is what I did: I went to www.BenzOnly.com, where you can go to "Dealer Quotes", select your State and request a quote individually from every Mercedes-Benz Dealership in the country. Let them compete between themself. Whoever comes with the lowest price - earns my business. I did not care about rates or residuals, etc... All I care - who can give the lowest payment. The best deal I got on my E350 was $2,100 below invoice plus they had $2,500 incentive at the time, but I did not care about all that. The only thing made a deal is the lowest payment.
Hope it helps.
