Someone leapfrogged infront of me and booked The saint's car by a whisker!
Went to Keong Heng and saw a silver Merc 02 C200k, local model in immaculate showroom condition
asking for RM118k, which is above my rm90k budget...... Need to save till next yr......
Too bad then, i think sengthee also cant wait d coz his new car is arriving.
C200k selling abt 110k at this moment is quite tempting. Actually before buying S40 my wife also asked my opinion on C200k. Although is tempting but we decided to go for S40 coz S40 is still the latest model (still the latest generation, only facelifted) unlike C-class which already had a new generation since 2007. And for 110k could only get a 2002 model which is 3 years older than S40 2005. (she was driving a yr 2003 car b4 this, cant be moving backwards to yr 2002 car right...)
Anyway, my fren used to drive a C200 2005 model and i was in the car when he hit 200km/hr, i didnt feel a thing..great car!!
But for a conti car, S40 is the best bet for 90k budget. Gd luck..
