Guys - I want to tell you about my latest purchase. Its a beautiful Chrysler 300C V6 Auto with only 49,000 miles on the clock. I bought it for an incredible price from a somebody in the trade who knows Mercedes Benz cars inside out. Not many people know this but Chrysler owns Mercedes Benz and the 300C is basically an S-Class with a different body. You're getting an S-class for a fraction of the cost - I purchased my car last weekend for £17,000 - an S-Class new is £60,000 - ie I've paid less than a third of the price. The 300C rides beautifully - gear changes are silky and the engine keeps pulling - this is the Mercedes experience for a fraction of the price. I wanted to ask a question of the forum - do you think I should get the car serviced in the Mercedes Benz main dealer network or should i use a small independent. If I use the latter, I will use official Mercedes parts as I want to maintain the quality. Any views would be welcome.
