I concur. Although the photo accompanying the online article doesn't actually appear to be a 300C; a minor point and - whatever it is - it's equally hideous. Journo licence perhaps? Or shurley shome mishtake?

JC's preamble is so unconnected with motoring (and so long) it would never have been allowed in this site ! However not having driven a 300C and given the widespread positive reviews eleswhere, I'd prefer to drive one myself before offering an opinion.

At least the newspaper ran the right picture.

I have a photo of a rumoured new business interest of JC.

How can I link to it?

(Cannot do big pix on this site and I closed m y other sites.)

Hi HJ

If you're using Safari on the Mac, try the following:

1. Open a second browser window (File->New Window).

2. Click on the photo in the first browser window and drag it into the address bar of the second browser window. The URL of the photo will appear in the address bar and you can cut and paste it into a message.

Just returned from north-east France, Luxembourg and Germany. I've seen more 300Cs over there than anywhere, couple of estates, too. I still think they have terrific presence - but the wheels are too big. Makes them look like something lesser, tarted up.
The 300C is rubbish ... - Murphy The Cat
Hey, it's a free world and we're all entitled to an opinion.

I absolutely adore my 300C (which won't be a surprise to anyone), but so does every 300C owner that I know (via the 300C forum).

It would be awful dull if we all thought the same !

Apart from the limited body colour choice (no yellow for real street presence, or burgandy, to be smarter than silver or black),or the fact you MUST have dead animal skin upholstry, where a quality fabric would be better, if I was a drug dealer, I'd have one instead of the standard issue black Range Rover!!

Now we've moved back to Luton, I feel oh so sorry for our local criminal population, having such a narrow minded view of their choice of transport

Gleaming new Black Range Rover, just going by now & another & another & another ...

When we went to Florida/Miami last year, we hired the new Jeep, Grand Cherokee (The are appeared here a few months ago) The build quality was rubbish, you couls see light seeping through the dashboard jointsd, but cars sent to the uk are better built I've been told.

I diagress, When me and my son saw the first 300C parked on the drive of the gated property we lived in, we all thought that we should have rented that car. Then we saw others, and most were that creamy colour with the neavily tinted glass which is the norm in Florida for most. We nust have seen about 50 for the three weeks we were there - all but 2/3 were the creamy clolur which looked really nice. The others were silver.

Last week at a wedding in Birminham/Edbaston, the groom arrived in a hired Bently sport, but the 300C limo looked a lot better. I got a chance to talk to the guy who had the car imported as a standard 300c and had driven it for a month and he thought it was the best car he'd ever driven

As a limo - it looked 10,000 times better than the usual american limos and I'm not sure what car they are built around.

There is a 300C forum? Has anyone told the inhabitants within your forum that Klaxon has given his final, expert judgement on Chrysler's corpulent monstrosity?

Thanks Bagpuss and Baskerville, but as you can see above, Pologirl's suggestion solved the problem.

Probably time to revive the MSN photosite. It seems to have sat there for years not being used very much.

tut tut tut

I can't speak for all 300C owners in the UK, but for the ones that I've met, the only coomon thread is that they are all owners who have bought the cars out of their own money, they're all family people and they're all very happy with their purchase. I've had to look up what Chav means, & from the people that I've met (including me of course, it's miles away from the truth).

On the 300C forum that I visit, the average owners age is around the 40 mark.

It was - admittedly not very good - but a joke...

As far as I am concerned it's just a large car which would be undriveable on our local country roads as too big and too wide like many 4x4s and SUVs - so totally pointless and impractical in the UK imo...

As for parking it in muli storey car parks....

cheers Madf

with the HJ site not having smileys, sometimes the proper inflection on posts doesn't come through. I know taht my superb sense of humour doesn't always hit the mark. Thankfully, I've got my good looks to fall back on:).

As regards, country lanes, I live in the Lake District and it's never been a problem for me. Likewise, most multi storeys are OK, but ones owned by (usually) NCP are a wee bit on the tight side - on the twisty exit / entry ramps. Thankfully, cities and NCP multi stories are things that i don't often have to visit.

Well yesterday I was driving in darkest Staffordshire and on roads where a large 4x4 (BMW X5) could not pass a Yaris...
madf
The 300C is rubbish ... - Murphy The Cat
Hi madf

where i live, the Yaris's tend to be driven by coffin dodgers, and they drive them as though they are the size of Transits !

p.s. Arnie would have driven over the Yaris.

p.p.s compared to Arnie, X5's are little cars (except for height !! ROFLPMSL)

I find a yaris fun to drive and surprise many people how quickly it can accelerate especially on motorway slip roads..

Just because you drive a car that some find controversial is not the same as someone saying your wife is ugly. You don't have to come roaring out of your kennel every time!

Mods - don't weaken....the presence of clickable emoticons is the one sure sign of a truly, truly awful forum.

{Having been down that route and posted a couple myself (by abuse of my mod buttons), I already know the views of members, regarding emoticons.

I can assure you that this will remain an emoticon free site.

Fair enough folks. I appreciate that I may be in the minority on the smiley front.

But I also use several Vbulletin powered forums that are very, very good. The ability to post Smileys doesn't ruin forums, it's posters that do that.
