VEHICLE STORY

I've been a huge car fan for basically as long as I can remember. My mom and dad had very good jobs that meant I grew up around some pretty cool cars. I was always exposed to classic cars, new cars, used cars, and everything in between. My parents were big fans of American cars, mostly Jeeps.  On the other hand, I've always been big on German cars. My first car was an Audi A6 3.0T Quattro. I liked it a lot and kept it around until I was 17. I wound up ditching it in favor of a 2014 BMW 335i xDrive that my mom bought- but lost interest in as soon as she decided to give the latest updated V8 Jeep Grand Cherokee 75th Anniversary a try. I drove the BMW every day of high school, but for college it was time for a change. I always had a thing for the Mercedes models with the peanut headlights. I made it my mission to find the nicest, latest year of the W203-generation C-Class I could. After having lived with the BMW and the Audi's sporty personalities I wanted to go for something a little more relaxed. So I bought my grandpa's well looked-after 2006 Mercedes-Benz C280 4Matic Luxury. This has been the best purchase of my life so far. I love everything about it and I don't plan to get rid of it ever. The only things I have planned for this car is a full restoration when I graduate college. I'll prolly keep this as a second car for the summer, and get another identical C-Class of the same year for the winters and stuff that I don't wanna put this one through. So far, the only things I've done to this car are strictly restorative, cosmetic, or stock replacements for worn parts. -Black vinyl roof -Mercedes-Benz OEM stainless steel logo license plate (instead of front plate) -Mercedes-Benz OEM logo welcome lights -Paint buffed, scratches removed, dents removed -New tires, brakes, headlights, taillights, transfer case fluid, transmission fluid, oil changes every 5k miles -New drivers side door card (old one ripped) -New steering wheel (old one was faded)
