    I'm picking my first special (previous punto owner) and brand new car on Friday!

    Mercedes C Class Coupe

    Is there anything I need to be aware of or look out for?

    Also I heard that some cars have a break in period? For example, Advising you to only go so fast for 1000 miles.

    I looked in the manual and couldnt find anything, does anybody know anything about this?

    Take a good look round the car inside and out for any damage to the finish . I know its new but, as they say **** happens. The car should have had a rigorous pre delivery inspection and your salesman should give you a familiarisation of all the controls on handover- make sure you have both sets of keys. Check its licenced and insured and all the ownership booklets are in the wallet in the glove box. There will also possibly be some payment paperwork to sort out. HAPPY HANDOVER. :thumb:

    Yeah that's true I've lost count of the new BMW's that have been out for customer delivery and get damaged in the lorrys just because it's new don't mean it hasn't been repaired, saying that though even if you was to look out for it if it's done right your never notice anyway no matter how hard you look.
