No funny enough not, I really should have done. But it looks good and I'm happy with it.

Looks very sporty with a touch of executive class and it works so well
It's a sport plus was introduced in June 2012.

I take it yours is pre blue-efficiency?

My previous c200 was getting Round 40. Bear in mind that the 62.9 was on a motorway run! I get 43.8 avg on a commute

Yea mine is 2009, but I've used a 2012 C220 with it and didn't find much improvement, I tend to do short stop start jorneys and use sport mode and tip tronic mostly so as I said, prob my driving . My Auntie has an E350 and since she bought it its averaged 20.9mpg even with her driving. I fancied the E350 convertible but they are thirsty.

Yes everyone drives differently. If I drive like a nutter ill probs not get 25mpg!

Great cars... No matter how much they cost to run :P

Superb finish on the C-Class , the Sport Plus Mercedes have got it spot on I think especially if they are targeting the younger market.

I must admit I am sorely tempted with one of these, it's between a 3 series Coupe or a this, can't quite decide at the moment
