The quick flick lane change blinlkers.
The quiet parking brake, no ratchety clicks.

Mashing the pedal to the floor while laughing at the $65,000 car behind me trying to keep up.

The roar of the hemi with stock exhaust.

Coming out to my car at the grocery store and finding two pretty girls trying to figure out which model Bentley it is.

Auto locking and unlocking that actually works.

Fits 4 girls comfortably in the back seat.

Watching my MPG rise on road trips.

Driving 1200 miles and spending over 36 hours driving the car since I bought it 2 weeks ago.

The drive time calulator in EVIC.

Must be slim SoCal ladies? Here on the East Coast the ladies have wider hips and bigger azzes, so I can only get 2 to 3 Fat Azz Ho's in the back seat! He-He! J/K! :D :D :D

Unbelievable 20-70 acceleration.
Traffic stopping looks.
Driver seat fits me perfectly.
My Mother saying "Can you Afford it?" thinking it was $20,000 more than I paid.

I love everything from the options to the attention my 300C draws!

Here's a nice little feature that I think the C has which I discovered by accident. Several days ago when I started it, I mistakenly thought the engine hadn't started and tried to start again -- nothing! Then I saw that the engine was already running. Apparently, if the engine is running, the starter motor deactivates. Has anyone else noticed this? (I don't really want to verify that's what happened by intentionally trying to start the engine after it's running). Maybe this is common practice nowadays but this is the first vehicle I've owned that seems to disable the starter when running. Could save a starter replacement in the long run.

I have not tried but the Europeans have done this for many years and all the auto experts at C&D, R&T say the LS 400 is so smooth they incoporate this feature as if they invented this. My noisy 4cyl 72 Capri (German) had this feature. Speaking of nothing new under the sun, my 70 300SEL 6.3 had child safety locks on rear doors and my 69 Eldorodo had heated seats, and we thought the Sweeds invented this.

I once owned a '57 New Yorker which had the starter wired to the neutral button. When the button was pushed in all the way the starter would engage. Once the engine was running a vacuum switch would disable the starter!

Is there an option to have the doors automatically lock once you close the doors?

My previous car had the keypad on the door to lock and unlock (I LOVE that feature), and now I have to remember (and frequently forget) to lock the doors. An auto lock would be nice...

Yes, there is. Go into the EVIC, Personal Settings and choose the options you want to enable. One of them will be to autolock the doors, etc. at certain speeds. You can also choose to open them all when you stop or just one, etc.
