For a new one the difference is of $5k. And C250 doesn't come with the Premium package, which the C350 does. So i you add the Premium package, which you desperately need on that Merc, the price difference drops to $2-3k.

Edit: And with Mercedes, everything is a damn option, so it really depends on how you configure it.

C350 gets my vote.

You better be nice to America or we will bring democracy to your country.

C350, hands down. For 100 more HP and more standard features (as GI3 says, the 350 comes with the P1 package and other stuff) I'd pay the premium. If you're concern is gas mileage, the 250 may get better mileage but you'll constantly find yourself with your foot on the floor and the mileage difference will lessen. I've driven the 300 and it was not exciting. The 250 will be even worse.

And if you're driving a Mercedes, gas price shouldn't be of concern, especially if you're only saving $500-700/year with C250 over C350.

350, no question.

Unless you want a CLS or an SL... then you need to jump to the 600.



or even the CL 600.

Jason,

In this case C350, however, look at C300 as well, I have been very impressed with the C300.

Just get a C63AMG. $75K of tire smoking luxury. The sound of that car gives me a boner.
