New Mercedes Benz coupe is very fast

The Mercedes Benz C250 Coupe blends great fuel economy with enough power to please speed-hungry drivers.

Mercedes-Benz has covered all the bases with the introduction of the all-new C-Class Coupe.

Three models share the same sleek AMG inspired lines but offer three distinct levels of performance and luxury. And after a long absence, the C250 sees the return of a four cylinder engine to the Mercedes-Benz lineup. But this is no ordinary 1.8-litre four-cylinder.

It features direct injection, dual balance shafts and a turbocharger that delivers 201 horsepower to the rear wheels and dashes to 100 km/h in 7.2 seconds while sipping just 6.4 L/100 km on the highway. It’s called having your strudel and eating it.

The C350 ups the ante with a 3.5-litre, 302 horsepower V6 while the over the top AMG C63 has somehow found space under the hood to squeeze in the 6.2-litre, 481 horsepower V8.

This will rocket you to 100 km/h in an eye watering 4.4 seconds and has a potential terminal speed of 280 km/h. Not around here, but in Germany on the autobahn….

Winter Driving & Winter Tires

Yokohama Winter TiresNothing beats winter tires. Of course it is true only in winter drive condition…

Today’s European Import cars are equipped  with specially designed, high performance summer or all season tires.

Those all season tires and summer tires reduce rolling resistance, and maximize fuel economy. The all season tires perform well in light winter, but they not enough to drive in our Canadian winter.

When temperatures fall below 7 Celsius, traction is reduced, therefore winter tires are recommended during Canadian winter condition for better traction and safety.

Much to often winter tires are portrayed as snow tires. The truth is, winter tires are not only designed to perform in snowy condition, but they are intended to provide optional performance in cold weather temperatures as well. Therefore even the absence of snow on the road surface, the winter tires will continue to provide you with performance and safety.

However winter tires are very effective in the winter season, under difficult environmental, (mud, snow ice) and at low temperature.

Winter Driving

Please consider it, winter tires are made, and  engineered to stay soft to the touch in the cold and has deeper profiles for the snow and slush.

The regular tires get softer in the heat. When the tire is warmer it will give you more grip, more traction. If the temperature goes down to minus, your summer tire can’t heat up, your car will have less grip.

winter tiresWide Have Selection of Winter Tires

The all season tires are between the two. They  will work better than the high speed summer radials and they definitely will give some traction in winter road conditions, but  not enough to be safe in our winter.

Thoseall season tires weren’t designed for our Canadian winter.

May we say your life and your families life is worth more than a set of tires, don’t you think?

Nice Touch…

Be careful, some retailers claims, you can just remove the front glass on the speedometer.

This is absolutely incorrect… so as the owner of this fine BMW M-3 found out after braking his own instrument cluster.

Needless to say he wasn’t amused when he found out the cost ($ 900.00+) for a replacement instrument cluster. Naturally we got around it and fixed his car up with his new carbon fiber insert at the same time.
