Finally took delivery of my new C350CDI on thursday, I am quite simply blown away by the whole package! I had high expectations for the performance and it has certainly satisfied. The thrust from this thing when in sports mode truly staggers. Drove a 5.0 V8 Mustang GT in the US a few months back and would say in gear this feels as quick, yet is on another planet in terms of refinement and build quality. This is my first non-VAG car, came from a mk1 Skoda Octavia vRS (essentially a mk4 golf GTi in a different guise with a larger turbo) so this is a major step up both in performance and refinement. Config: C350CDI Sport Edition 125 Dynamic Handling Package Harman Kardon Sound DAB radio 18" twin 5-spoke AMG wheels - ended up coming with 18" 7-spokes due to supply issues. I have done about 150 miles, a mixture of motorway cruising and a few back road blasts. The dynamic handling package is great when you feel like taking the twisties, it really transforms the nature of the car. It gives you a sport button in the centre console which my wife now detests after I took her out in it . The ride gets noticably firmer, throttle is much more responsive and the gear changes sharpen up. I actually expected the ride in the standard comfort mode to be softer than it is, however it is still much better than the skoda ever was so I am happy. Also very happy with the HK sound system, I find myself stopping for a while at the end of a journey to finish listening to the tune I had on. Had a few niggles with the media interface to my iphone at the beginning - it would play for a few seconds then give me some error message about it drawing too much power. The last few journeys have been fine so lets hope i've seen the back of that . All in all good times! Here's a pic.
