Hello all, I used to be a Product specialist for BMW but just switched to Mercedes. Any questions regarding the New 2008 C or any of the other models, please feel free to direct to me. I can also answer availability concerns in the North Georgia Area starting October 1 2007..
I used to post on the boards as KandG and have written stuff in the LR3 forums, 300zx z32, and for the BMW E46 3 series,

Not only are memory seats lacking, but the power tilt/telescopic wheel as well. Also, the front seat headrests (I believe) are no longer power-adjustable. What I would miss most are the old "fold down" headrests in the rear seat...

I took the headrests out and put them in the trunk on my other car. When we have passenger(s) (once a month or less), we put them back in.
Someone suggested that and we noticed that the visibility has greately improved.

I understand your wait 'abqhudson', afterall you can wait a year or be unhappy for several years with options we wish you had waited for. Thanks for replying.

Nice to hear from you Greg. Can you please address the issues of my orginal post (re: cons) on the new C Class. Particularly why are those options not offered and when might they be? Thanks for replying.

Yes 'toybenz' that is so true. This is another cost saving design which so-calls cheapens the car. Now the headrests blocks your rearward visibility...I thought the new C was design around 'safety'. As for power front headrests, those would have been tied in with the power memory till/telescopic steering wheel package (hence: switches afixed to the doors).

This maybe a quick-fix but come on now, this is suppose to be a luxury sport sedan. My friend does the same thing in his Kia. Smile. Thanks for replying.

As fate would have it, my 2000 C is in today for a "B" service, and I have an '07 C280 4MATIC rental. I do like all of the features mentioned in post #7. I was also curious if you know the answer to this: there is a large hump on the left side of the driver's footwell. Is this due to the catalytic converter, or rather is it related to 4MATIC hardware? (My apologies to the board for veering off topic).
