What is the cyborg look? I am unaware and never heard of this theme before? Is it buying parts from the home improvement store and sticking them to the car? OR buying unnecessary aerodynamic parts from ebay that are not designed for any specific type of vehicle and just mount it where ever you wish?

So who cares if it's an entry level Mercedes? That doesn't justify slapping gaudy cheap parts on the car that don't work or flow at all. It's just a C300, but I would take a C300 over any Honda, KIA, Hyundai, ect... out there. It's a lot of car for the money. Just because it's a C300 doesn't mean it isn't nice and deserves to have a bunch of low budget, shade tree parts slapped all over it. I understand this is your car, and you will mod it to your liking, but I am just trying to be real with you, in term we essentially mod our vehicles to our liking, but really we are just spending money we don't have to impress people we don't know, and speaking for the majority of the people, they will look at those mods in disgust. All I am trying to do is give you some constructive criticism and lead you in the right direction. That's all.

^But that looks clean and is actually functional and serves a purpose as protection to the under side of the bumper when going up steep slopes, or parking curbs. Not plastered randomly to the front of the bumper.

You don't have to spend thousands. There are several vendors on here that sell great parts that wont rape your wallet.

It's cheap when you stick it to the front of a bumper to mimic a functional canard, which servers a purpose to add a slight down force to the front axles to help reduce under steer. Slapping imitation rubber ones on there that would probably blow off at a high speed, or flex and flop around since they are rubber not doing a damn thing but just looking ugly. Nothing wrong with using it on the underside of the front bumper, most manufactures use a hybrid material for the bottom side of the bumper/under tray fairings.

If anything, relocate those flippers to the end of each side skirt.
