+1. I guess it has to do with the supersize side view mirrors.

I like the super sized side view mirrors. Good visibility. Normally I can only drive upto 120KM here due to speed restrictions. So I do not hear that much of the road noise or wind noise. But I can imagine it will be there. I will have to wait and see once i take it to germany for a test drive after I complete my 1500km on the clock.

Well, there is a big distinction between road noise and wind noise. We have no wind noise; road noise varies [as it does with every car] with surface granularity, and can be made better or worse by tire choices. Our W204 is better in this respect than our W203 C240, even with the wider tires. I've driven W204s with the AMG package which are noticeably noisier than our C300 Lux, due entirely to the summer tire tread pattern.

Maybe it's just that I am used to the road noise on the TL, but I find the W204 to be a quiet sanctuary. But then again I am usually enjoying the Logic7, so that could drown out even the noise of an 18-wheeler.

i have noticed that sometimes the side view mirrors will create a lot of wind noise on the highway, but not always...
