Hey...I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to this kind of thing. How would one go about "breaking in" a car?Well unless it comes soon I'd probably take the C300 anyways. You want to be able to break in a car nicely. A 1500 road trip, even if it is highway, is a bit of a brutal break-in.
There's no specific way to brake in a new car, and there's not a consensus on whether or not a new car nowadays even needs a brake in period. Usually it means don't thrash the throttle. Depending on the car, usually that means try not to accelerate much beyond 4000-5000 rpm other than absolutely necessary. Also not "excessive" idling (I put it at probably not more than a couple of minutes at a time). A mixture of roads (city and highway), but not above the speed limit (in the US usually that means for most people 65 mph). I don't know where you are, but in the EU or Canada usually that'd be 110-130 kph. If you really want to go crazy you can also change the oil after the first 30 miles or so of a new car (though the car may already have that just from test drives).Hey...I'm a bit of a newbie when it comes to this kind of thing.
