What's your favorite feature on the C?

Standard or option, just curious.

My favorite standard feature is probably the seats. Everyone complains about them, but they fit my back PERFECTLY.

My favorite option is probably the MM Comand system, its just so cool and the voice command is amazing.

Overall, I think I made the best purchase. I just need to get around to replacing my lux grill with a sport one.

Fave?

Probably the MM package.

But it's hard to say, the whole car is so how-you-say-in-your-language, satisfying.

Another hundred horsepower would not go amiss, though.

As for my wife, the seat warmers.

I hear you. She's never raved about anything else about the car except those seat warmers.

I've never even turned them on.

I don't know that I have a "favorite" feature. I use the car a lot, with 8400 miles on it by now. It depends. Sometimes the heated seats are great, other times they're too much. Mostly the radio is great (MM). I've just started using Sirius, and it's nice to have stations I cannot get otherwise.

The ride is superb. I hear the contact with the road, but I don't feel it. Wonderful. I like the trip computer and all those fantastic things I can do with the buttons while I'm going down the road. Hmm.

I'm thinking I'm going to run out of new things to try fairly soon now. Hmm. Maybe I need to buy some accessories?

I think it's easier to list the things I don't like .....

I love the speedo display. The floating needle is a cool effect and the large info display in the middle is very nice. In cruise control mode I like how the thin ring on the perimeter of the display lights up showing the speed you've set. Also the display turns from a cool white to completely red when there's a warning message, such as having the emergency brake on.

What I like the most is not a standard or option feature, is the way the car handles with the H&R springs is amazing.

I also think the seats fit me well, and I think the bluetooth auto connect works great...but for me I really like the standard sunroof, I know, its not panoramic, but I like how its big enough to make a difference.

I also like the 4matic transmission, its smoother than I thought the more I drive it especially in C mode...

The MM package but not the navi itself tho. Merc should really partner up with someone like Garmin whose GPS is the core business.


also, the outside styling. the back is bit questionable but the front is absolutely beautiful.

MB uses Navteq which also supplies maps to other car manufacturers.
