Replaced a C43 and is both a much harder (sportier) drive and feels much less "special". I had thought sportier the better but for me this is as hardcore as I wish to go and I admit to driving in gearbox C mode 90% of the time S and M reserved for learning my limitations.
Good features are the engine, top brakes, the engine, reasonable ride handling compromise and did I mention the engine.
Actual car is just loaded W203 meaning just sort of upmarket Hyundai but at least the rusting is now at Ford levels unlike the W202.
20mpg is about it (unlike the C43 at 24mpg) so I have never made 300 miles on a tank.
Don't think DTM/Numburgring, think Hotrod and 1/4 mile and you will love it.
