Has anyone seen one in person? Thoughts? Worth the money over a regular 300? Going to check out a Limited, wondering if the audio in the S is appreciably better or if the S is any better looking than the Limited in the wild. Can't believe this car is on the list....

I've only seen the 200 S in person, and although it is nowhere near in the same league as the 300, the sporty trim changes, at least, toughen up the car. Let us know if you find one locally and take photos please, daddy.

The Limited is a nice (although huge) ride, good powertrain, more room than I know what to do with, maybe more cargo space than the Jetta. No sign of an S which is more appealing (on paper) than the other models. Jill liked it, but like everything else, we're in the early stages.

300S is nice, but I'm not sure it's that kid friendly. Especially after what my brothers and I did to our the interior of our parent's Mercedes SL. You'd probably want something a bit more 'Rubbermaid.'

There's better, more economical choices out there.

It definitely wasn't my first thought, but she figures that she might as well have a car she likes while its being destroyed.

The 300 S was my personal favorite at the auto shows, for what it's worth.

I like the S and the Executive (the wood was great)

People still buy the 300? Really?

Next you're going to be recommending PT Cruisers...

I haven't seen the S or Executive in person yet...I'm interested in checking out the Executive. I had a base '12 300 rental in Cali weekend before last and really liked it. Quiet, smooth, solid and hefty feeling.
