First of all, no, it is not that unusual to want better headlights. The "state of the art", at least for Mercedes, are the Bi-Xenons. I have a 2001, and wanted to upgrade my regular Xenons to those - I was told they were not available as OEM when my car was new, so no dice.
Being a modder yourself, you must know that nearly anything is possible, given the knowledge and ingenuity. I gave up on my idea, because I did not want to butcher my Benz. By this I mean new fenders, body shop, etc.
Lastly, I'd pose your question on the C280 sub-forum. There are bound to be a few owners there that have a similar desire.
Good luck, and welcome to the forum.
