A6 is quieter, rides better, smoother shifting, better quality leather, more features, significantly better looking and is a more upscale brand. That's basically some of what you're paying for. Considering that it's also cheaper than the Merc/BMW I'd say it's not so bad.


You consider a 12k discount on a half a million dollar vehicle something big? I'll still choose MB over Audi any day for simple reliablity. Too many horror stories from friends about their Audi's.

On a side note: if you morder a C180 before the next order cycle it's around $380,000
(Almost a $40,000) big drop in cost.

anyone has info on 'work horse' model 4x4 pickups (base models with the black bumpers). Looking for one for work use. Looking at the Frontier, BT50, Ranger and maybe Mahindra. Any input is appreciated.


Know a few people with the BT50, it's a 50/50 I guess, two of the guys I know that service regularly at the company have had problems recently, TCL and TCN.

Mr TCL's dura-liner is beginning to rot or something like that he told me to that effect, he carried it back and they said they would fix it for him, no mechanical issues though.

TCN has a part in his van that needs to be changed, it hasn't gone yet but when he carried it to service one of the men in the servicing bay told him that he needs to change that part soon and they don't have it in stock.


Another two owners I know TCJ/TCJ Electrican and an A/C installer
None of them service at the company after the free service, one does servicing himself and the other only service when he finds time, which isn't very often, neither of them have had problems with their vehicles so far.

The BT-50 Facelift should be out later this year though :D

crazychinee 380k for a c180? Tell me, is the MB still worth that price considering the existence of the a4 and s60 which are cheaper? I mean, I heard horror stories on MB too so the question is, is it really a superior product for that price?

ok so i test drove the elantra.

my thoughts...

great looking car, aot of features that are with the package and not as extras
roomy inside good seating position and steerring feel
feels nimble but need to see on a longer drive to say for certain.
minimal road noise, wide viewing area from drivers seat, small rear view as back glass is small( one must note that to compensate a rear view camera is provided but only comes in the fully loaded version)
could not test lights as is was day time :) braking was firm and had good feedback to pedal. it absorbed bumps and hoes on teh savannah relatively ok, not as good as a honda but i put it down as stiffer suspension.

what i did not like but could live with was hp( i spolit by vtec and evo boost :))

Overall i can say it is a pretty good car at a great price range... would i recommend it.. well i am downpaying on one this week :)

actually checked d cruze today out of curiousity (n a lil too much free time). 4 any1 who is interested .... 190000 for d fabric (would go wit d elantra over this) and 220 for d leather (would go wit d jetta over dis). apparently they're bringin a 1.6 version of d cruze 4 a lower price because ppl buyin d elantra despite d fact dat d cruze is a 1.8.....so to compete in a few mths dey gonna make d 1.6 cruze standard vs d 1.8 which dey sellin out now (open for correction but i believe dis is wat d rep meant)
