Money depending of course I think there has never been so many nice cars available. Love the New Mercedes C class Sports, the New E class, S Classes are getting cheap now. The new shape CLS is beautiful. Mercedes now do the 420cdi engine. The new 6 series is nice too, can get a 640d (I think this is a twin turbo with a 8 speed box). Audi have a nice line up too especially liking the new A6 all them led's on the back, Audi seem to be overpriced though in my opinion, paying for a name? I don't know. Audis seem a bit Gucci handbag like IMO.
IMO the Phaeton looks like a big Passat that will just blend in. The new Saab 9-5 is a lovely car, I would of suggested speccing it with the HUD display but since they don't make them anymore probably wouldnt advise getting one-you will just end up with a worthless car, a bit like owning a last of the line MG. I suppose it all depends what you want out of it? I like the New Laguna Coupes but I can never seem to find one for sale with a manual gearbox, which if I was to have one it would have to have. I really do think thought if you are after a new car to replace your 300c it probably has never been so easy. I am not trying to put the 300c down but there is just so much choice out there. For me, I will be getting a newshape C when they are cheap enough
btw when is the 8 speed being launched??
