Lucky me get to break in new Supercharged Mercedes

Dropped off daily driver for warranty repairs
Dealer gives me supercharged C230 with 35 miles as loaner
Who ever buys this car will be assured of hard break in
Car doesnot have Corvette performance, but has some spunk. Will be hitting back roads this weekend testing out performance

Only around 200 but gearing is around 3:50's in rear does have nice acceleration. Brakes look to be six piston in front with drilled rotors.

If that damn 200hp Benz has some six-piston calipers, some engineer somewhere needs shot.

Car has sport package, what ever that means? Never been interested in low end Benz. Calipers look bigger than my C5, plus surprised to see factory drilled rotors, will take picture in morning.

Damage was done during service. Unlike Chevy dealerships MB dealer took responsibility for damage
Had Chevy dealer take out chunk of my 1K plus HRE wheel on my Corvette during recall repair Dealership denied doing damage even know was ovious it happened in their shop.

They took responsibility for damage that should not have been there to begin with, HHHMmm, Warranty recall work, car damaged by dealer, looks like you have bought in to all that sizzle for very little steak

I wanna sell my Land Rover and get a Porsche 928 now. Probably the closest I'll ever get to driving something that fast on 4 wheels.
