If you could change ONE thing about the C-Class what would it be?

For me it's definitely the rims that come standard on the 4matics...such an eye sore compared to the rest of the car. They are my only complaint.

What about you?

More horsepower. 300hp minimum for the C350 please, so we can at least have a chance with the other cars in this range.

so many things need to be changed.

from an owner with a 2009 model (even though some of these issues are addressed in the 2010)

more power for the 350
heated and cooled seats
a cheaper keyless go
standard backup camera with navi

For 2.5k, the MM system better be touchscreen. The iPod cable sucks - not impressed with quality and steering wheel controls only?

More power would be nice, although if we wanted more power we would buy a 335.

Acura MDX
I don't have a C but the two things that are holding me back are...more hp in the C350 and leather as part of one of the two premium packages. The C350 I am looking at is around 46k but no leather.

I agree a larger engine and US 4matic C350 Option would be a good idea

A C350 4matic or even a C550 4matic for the US...

Supercharged V6 would be nice too...
