I recently purchased a new (to me 2007) Mercedes Benz C280 4-Matic sedan in metallic silver. OK car, not what I went out that day to purchase, but the deal was extraordinary and could not be passed up.
Wanted a VW Jetta GLI special edition. They did'nt have it so I stopped by the MB dealer just for fun.
So my neighbor also just bought a new Toyota Camry V6. Nice car. We get to talking, where he says;
O that (my MB) is just a glorified version of my camry and his is so much roomier, nicer, much cheaper, better looking, blah..blah..blah. Completely ripping my car apart. Said he paid $23k beyond loaded with every imaginable option under the sun.
I said not much except, I agree, but its not a Camry but a Mercedes, and I did not buy it for bling, flash or upkeep with the Jones. Added it has all wheel drive.
Quite an annoying butz he was.
