I wouldn't agree with the c300 vs. 328. IMHO the 328 is a better drivers car in every single way.

I have a new c250 coupe and drive the c350 & 328.

Mercedes lease price is amazing though.

MB C (W204) steering gives better feedback than BMW 3 (E90). I haven't tried the F30, but I don't think the electric power steering would help feedback.

According to who? The steering feel IMO, and most reviewers, is much better in the e90 and f30 by far.

According to me (I've driven a lot of base model C-class and 3-series cars as service loaners, and I've driven both C63 and M3 on track) and multiple British car magazine reviews. One example of a review - Autocar, 5 September 2007 Best Driver's Car issue:
It (C350) had balance and accurate steering, and its attitude into and through any corner could be trimmed with throttle and brake inputs. It was also fun. This prompted the simple question: was it better than a 3-series? To which we all answered: "Absolutely". Well done, Mercedes.

Before this year it would have been inconceivable that any non-AMG C-class could even be invited to this event but having already claimed the prized scalp of the BMW 330i in our twin test (Autocar, 1 August 2007) expectations came on a plane no previous C-class could even imagine, let alone aspire to.

It did not disappoint. In all the notes that came back from the judges, there was just one line of mild criticism pertaining to its damper performance on the most undulating section of all. The rest was an uninterrupted flow of undiluted praise. Like the Mondeo, this is a family car and asking for the same level of dynamic excellence as that expected of, say, the Cayman, is clearly not realistic, but of its type, it excelled itself.


The Autocar team judging for this issue included guys such as Chris Harris and Steve Sutcliffe.

I like the C 250 and 350 coupe . It kinda looks like a better looking more upscale Accord coupe but then I see the Audi A5 and I am like that car has the "Wow" factor over the Merc. Did u consider the Audi?
