So I am thinking of buying a Mercedes for my mom or myself.

Hey everyone,

So,I had my last car (Integra) for ten years and my current Civic is going on four years now. I’m super on top of maintenance so my cars all get plenty of love.

With that being said, I’ve come to a point in my life where I would like to class up my ride and the C300 looks like a great start.

There’s a generality about the long term reliability of Mercedes cars that they don’t last long and that maintenance would be very costly. I understand that it will be more than a Civic but how much are we talking here?

My other current infatuation is the 2017 Civic Type R but I’m trying to talk myself out of it for some odd reason

You probably done your home work

Civic Type R (PI)

Power 315hp without mod

Torque 400NM without mod

Acceleration : 5.8s (0 to 100kmh) without mod

Dimensions (L x W x H) (4557 x 1877 x 1434) mm
Wheelbase 2,699 mm

MB  C300

Power : 257 bhp

Torque: 370NM

Acceleration : 5.9s 

 

 

Dimensions (L x W x H) (4686 x 1810 x 1442) mm

Wheel base 2,840 mm

if you consider you and or mum are still a boy racer, Type R for you

If you want more space (longer car & wheelbase) and refinement, the C300

If you want the C300, imho, wait for the new C Class next year.

Probably April/May 2020

It will comes with more bells & whistles including fully digital dashboard & infotainment system and likely even slightly more spaces

If you parked your car in the car park, the Type R will be just another jipun chia (no offense to Jipun chia owners)

but a MB will always stands out among the row of cars parked.

Even after parking, you will still want to turn your head and look at your ride again.

The price diff between PI Type R & C300 will be about $40K.

For the price of the Type R, I will get a 2017 or 2018 used new E Class though lesser in performance but a very comfortable ride

my Rp1 worth of thoughts
