I love Mercedes but I will never buy one until they learn to make a freaking manual. Which is probably never. I also don't feel the responsiveness like the BMW. Eh maybe I will get one when I'm like 60.

My family owns a 05 C230, it used to be my favorite.

I made sure I test drove the C before I bought my next car. It just couldn't even begin to compare to the 3.

This new C looks like a step back in design. The front looks OK, the rear looks like a failed CLS copy, the steering wheels look like thin prezels, and the center console is not as modern as the old one.

I love it. I seen it on the road with the sport grille. WOW. btw the rear actually doesnt look bad for some reason. In my opinion, this looks better than the E90....

I would never drive any MB. I've been dissapointed for every test drive I have taken in a MB compared to their respective compitetion in the BMW family. My mother-in-law will definatley have this as her next car. I have a feeling after her Mazda 3 goes in she will want one of these as she loved the C230 SS we had for a loaner.

Am I the only one who prefers the permanent nav screen (like iDrive) versus a pop-up screen? Pop-up screens seem a little cheesy to me, and are one more thing to break. Yes, I know there are some nice Bimmers with pop-up iDrive, too. I prefer the hooded, permanent screen of the 3er's iDrive.

Other than that, the interior looks great, IMO.

Me too, but I have a feeling the C63 may change that. AMG by all accounts has finally gotten serious about handling.
