I’m turning in my MB next week. I ended up going in a completely different direction from my original plan in this thread and leased an Acura ILX. I recently changed jobs and my commute is only like 10 mins each way. I’ll probably struggle to put 5-6K miles on my car next year so I just couldn’t justify a high payment. I’m literally in my car for only 25 mins total a day during the week and on the weekends we take my wife’s SUV because it’s much easier with the baby. It’s got better technology and is more comfortable than my MB and I can actually fit the little one in the back seat and a couple of sets of golf clubs in the trunk. I was pretty floored at the payment as well. They were really dealing on the 13's to make room for the 14's. I will miss the punch and handling of my C350 though.
