It is, perhaps, a benefit of living in Thailand to dream. Well that is, is it not, why at least some reside within this paradise of irregularity? I have started to dream of owning the pinnacle of engineering masterpieces - a Benz. The brand is so far removed from the mediocre of the Toyota and Honda duopoly which dulls the motor scene of the country some of us call home that I hesitate through lack of knowledge. Perhaps Sirchai's germanic experience/blood could contribute. I have started such a dream. Usually after initial thoughts, I progress to want and thereafter need. Well, we only live once (depending on your religious beliefs). With this in mind a quick question for those who follow the 'car scene'. Benz have the entry CLA and the C class (Let's not over imagine and stretch the dreams of S for at least another ten years), the CLA is a substantial 500 000 cheaper but does the C offer an extra 1/2 million punch.
