Not all pics of the new C class are bad. This pic below sealed the deal for my Fiance. She wasn't even going to look at a C until she saw this pic. She loves white cars.

Congrats on the car. We're on the fence with Black or white right now. We already have a black and white car, and the silver cars are just too common nowadays.

Stiggs, that pic always grabs my attention.

Congrats on picking up the car ORA12, I like the rims. Just washed my car (for the first time) on Sunday and the AMG rims are a pain to clean.

And that 300SL Gullwing in the dealership is sweet!

for that pic alone I hope 20% tint is legal in Ontario! I have 35% on my TSX now, but everytime I see that pic I know I have to go dark on the C!

I couldn't agree more, those 7 spokes alloys ruin the looks of good looking car.

That's why you get winter tyres and put them on the standard rims and get something that looks a lot nicer for summer. That's how they do it in most European countries that get a lot of snow. In Norway where I live it's illegial to drive in winter on summer tyres, everyone has two sets.

I wish that was the case here in Minnesota. It isn't until late in the summer that all the potholes finally get filled. I saw a family of four stuck down inside a pothole last year! When I ordered my C350 last week, I originally went with the 18's and called back a couple days later and opted for the stock 17s. Still planning on putting on winter tires since I couldn't get AWD in the 350.

MARAKBAI -- I believe you can go 15% in the rear and 35% in the front for Ontario. I plan to go 35% all-around. Don't like a mis-matched front and rear tint.

Nice, I haven't seen any silver around where I work in Flushing, but that white C300 is always there in the parking lot..

enjoy ..

Standard, but it goes away if someone is sitting there, or you put a something in the front seat. Most if not all new cars are this way now.

About the whole 18'''s, yeah makes since to take them off in the winter and have winter tires, but you can't get the staggered width 18''s from the factory as a $1000 option on the 4matics, you have to buy the $3k+ ones (not including tires). For that, I could easily get some rims and tires somewhere else, but like I said before, I might be alone here, but I really like the stock sport rims. When I get mine I'm thinking of going with the black center caps instead of the stock blue ones to match the outside of my car.

Once again to each their own. I personally find the pano roof on a white C300 hideous. I like my car to be white around not just the sides. I think of a man with a bald head with hair on the sides when I see a white C300 with pano. Had I purchased the car in black, the pano roof would be better suited as it isn't so obvious.
