As time went on, since the day of purchase I truly began to enjoy the car more and more. Being a manual transmission, the car provides a lot more response over an automatic; I can vouch for this because, after recieving an 12' C250 as a loaner car for a week, the automatic transmission simply feels boring or I don't know how to describe it in a better way. Also since owning the car for well over a year now, I can also say that YES its 0-60 is slow, but surprisingly the car enjoys going well over the "governed" speed that Mercedes Benz claims.Furthermore, since time has gone by, I recently decided to upgrade my wheels once again. During my hunt for the right wheel and size, I decided to fill the wheel well with 19's. Three rims which I had in mind were Brabus IV monoblocks, BBS Lm, or Mandrus Milleniums. The hunt for rims was honestly the most grueling thing in the world. It finally came down to whether it was worth spending a little less $ and get replicas of the Brabus or BBS, or to spend a little more $ and get factory sealed Mandrus...I gave in and spent the extra cash.
