congrats! What are your thoughts on assistance package, airmatic and fragrance? Options I likely will add as well. Thanks!

Think you need to make up your mind on the grill or the hood star. The two don't go together. With the body color grill the hood star looks too elevated and far back. Other than that it looks great

Short answer I am glad I got everything.

Airmatic turned out to be great for me, I live in the city but work in the country. City roads can be rough and the comfort mode in the airmatic makes it feel like you are riding in a big S class. Throw it in Sport+ and it tightens up, you can definitely feel the road then. I have thrown it through some pretty good turns with speed and I barely feel body roll.

Air balance is great, at first it didnt do anything but I noticed the fragrance wasn't quite seated right. I actually turned it down because I dont want to give up the fresh leather smell just yet. Its subtle and very cool. Looks like you could easily do your own fragrance too.

Drivers assistance is very cool, I haven't used it a ton just yet. There is part of me that has a hard time trusting to let it do its thing so I will ease into it until i'm comfortable but i can definitely see this being a HUGE deal in highway traffic or long rides too.

I'm with you on this one. I think the hood ornament doesnt go with the big star in grille.

But i believe he put it on intentionally, since C400 normally wouldnt come with that hood ornament star.

I know! At first it's pretty nerve racking using it but believe me it works very smoothly. I've used it a lot when driving my father's GL550. He's never had any issue with it.

At 200 miles after 3 days and I'm getting 19mpg overall. But I'm also driving it pretty aggressive in Sport+ mode.


The extra for me was the Driver Assistance Package...I know it's expensive but it is such a life saver (Literally!) that I wasn't gonna get one without it. Believe me, it takes some getting used to, but for me it is well worth the extra $2800 dollars.

Nice looking C400! I had one question, since you have the interior package, does the rear climate control have their own controls for fan speed/direction and temperature? I have seen pictures of the C400 that have digital controls in the back (under the two air vents), but also have seen ones that do not. I didn't know if that was part of the interior package or not.

Nope, no digital controls. Just a single *** to control the air flow out of both vents.

I'm having too much fun driving aggressively right now so my fuel consumption is likely not good.

It is really hard to pin down one option that I would put above the rest. For me it's likely the Burmester sound system. But I am also very glad I did the airmatic suspension and panoramic roof.

I probably could have done without the rear power shade and the manual shades on the rear windows since I will likely tint it anyway.

Its the only thing we can do until some aftermarket grills are released. I just cant drive Benz without the standing star in my view. lol #FirstWorldProblems

Aww, why the 2 picture limit?

Most people dont mind the pics, its the talking that always ruin the picture threads not the excess pics... The more the better IMO

Why aftermarket? Will the OEM C300 "Luxury" grill not fit a C400?

Im not a fan of the big giant grill star of the "sport" grill. I prefer the "luxury" grill and standing star. But I also want the C400 which doesn't offer the Luxury grill/standup star option . I was planning to swap grills unless there is a reason it won't fit.

Honestly, I have not done any research on this topic for the W205.
The E class lux and sport grill are completely different and requires the associated front bumper. So I made the assumption that the W205 would be like that too.

While I like the grill of the lux better, I would much prefer the sport bumper. If the grills are interchangeable for the W205 that would be good news.

Yes, unfortunately according to my Mercedes dealer, the C400's pre-safe system is integrated into the grill so the grill can not be swapped for lux grille. I almost didn't buy the car because of this. I can't drive a Mercedes without the standing star on the hood. For me, sitting behind the wheel, it doesn't look like a Mercedes without the standing star. But that's just my personal opinion/preference. I don't know why Mercedes degardes its brand by making these changes. Yes, there are plenty of changes that can improve the car, but some traditional brand identifiers should not be changed especially when they are so iconic. Again, just my opinion.

It'd be a shame if they didn't offer some grills. I would like to know why Mercedes didn't offer the luxury grill on the C400. It would make sense that there would be a market for it on the 400 as well.

Hi, I'm also curious about the airmatic, I have it on my order but I wont receive my car until November, how does the car looks at normal and sports+ mode regarding height??

Is is possible to post some pictures of your car at the different height settings?

Thanks

Yes, I would like to see the pictures of airmatic in its lowest setting because the wheel well gap is bugging me, especially with the 18 inch rims.
