No, it wasn't. The wheels spun for a brief moment (RWD), the check engine light came on and the car went into limp mode- the turbo was essentially shut off. I had to turn off the car and restart and...

Terry have you posted directions on how to get to the intake sensor on the C300 yet? Been waiting for them before I purchase.

It's ok. Like mentioned above, not as striking as the w205 when first introduced. I dunno about the touchpad being forward of the gearshift....seems like it might be an awkward reach.

Someone has actually said that the C300 is the "worst built car of 2015". That's melodramatic IMO.
