I favor E-class over C-class but if those 2 cars were my only two possibilities, I would buy the C320. As was already metioned, there are a lot of used MBs for sale.
I have that engine in mine, and with 59000 on it, it runs well. I would love to have any of the AMGs, but I'd advise having a warranty on those. By the way, have you seen the CLK55 AMG? To me, that might be a compromise for you and your wife between the 2 styles. I have a neighrbor who bought a used one on eBay and he loves it.
Good luck and welcome to the forum,
