I have one

Bought it new a few months ago, already put 3k miles on it. Fantastic vehicle. Drives nice, kids love it, wife loves it. The M274 turbo engine + 7 speed trans MOVES will leave my 420SEL in the dust and can keep up with a M112 powered vehicle easily. Around 8 seconds to 60. 258lb ft torque from 1,200rpm to 4,800 will lay down rubber if you're not careful!

Mine is a passenger model with some extras like cruise/fancy steering wheel/front & rear A/ carpet! This is a car that is invincible to kids. (I have 2 + one coming)

Its my wife's daily driver and she likes it way more than the C240 wagon she had before.

The suspension is like a ruggedized W210 up front and an industrialized W126 at the back.

I can't believe you got one with the fancy steering wheel but no carpet! I ended up getting custom rubber mats to cover my carpet, so it's all good. 16k miles and we still love it.
