Purchased C400 six months ago with interior, multimedia, panorama sunroof, blind spot, hands-free trunk packages; has been to the dealer exactly once to install plates. This vehicle is great for someone looking for a good balance between sportiness and luxury. Had driven the late model E-series a few times and, while it was moderately luxurious, always thought the handling was relatively stodgy and heavy-feeling, even with the V-8. The 400C is nearly as long and wide as an E, but feels far nimbler and quicker (in part because it weighs just shy of 3700 lbs.). Positives: power and handling, exterior styling and interior appointments, color combination (Palladium silver, cranberry red leather and open-pore black ash trim), blind spot assist and navigation/multi-media setup. Negatives: don't find the touch pad particularly intuitive, sport suspension can seem harsh on poor pavement, windshield profile creates some wind noise. On balance, though, very fun and comfortable drive -- and who needs the extra 30 horses in the MY16 C450?
