Newbie with 1st purchase decision

Which to choose????
Looking to buy my first Benz. I plan to check out the 2008 models C300 and C350. I am female looking for a 4 door sedan with class, comfort, a smooth quiet ride, reliability, good crash test reviews. I think 4 wheel drive is best as I will be in a winter climate part of the year.

How do these cars compare to each other and what is in one that is lacking in the other?

At this time of the year what can I expect to pay and what options do I have for features given the 2009s are rolling out?

How much of a better deal will I get paying cash? I had a 1995
Honda Accord RX V6 looking for something close to that size range.

I'm pretty sure this will help you. There are several things written there that I not agree with (Great seats-awful plastics; On the Road-New powertrain options, but Sport is not sporty enough), but is a pretty good article. Go see page 2 too.
Good luck.
