Hello to all. I am new to the site. Picked up my C350 Sport last month and I am very satisfied with it. I have the Mars Red/Black and Grey combination with Command Option. The car handles very well. The power is there for a big six. Coming out of an '07 E550 with airmatic, you do feel the bumps in the city so it is a good thing that I did not go for the 18" wheels. The car has a great look and the paint shines like I have never seen. I also have an '07 ML350 which the wife drives. Over the years, we have had the following in short term leases: E500, C320, E320, E350, ML320 and E550.

I am very curious as how hard it rides, and you got the wider rear wheels as front.
As I understood you can get the AMG package as well as the Advanced Agility Package.
With these two options you have a sporty/Harder drive or a softer drive.....

The US C350 sport model comes standard with the Agility package. I spent a year with the airmatic suspension on a E550 so the change to the new C without the airmatic and with wider, low profile tires is noticeable in the ride. I could not go for the 18" wheel/tire option and I am glad I didn't. Remember, it is a sport model and so you are getting great handling with some sacrifice in the ride. For me, it is worth the tradeoff.

The ride on my C300 Sport with 17" wheels is firm, but not harsh. No problems on the poorly maintained roads in California. The staggered wheels w/Michelin OEM tires and slightly lower ride height handles well and looks great.
