A lot of people seem to agree with you and like the C240. The waiting list here in my part of the world (I'm told by the only dealer in my greater metro area) is 4 months.

I suppose if I'd thought to find out about it before I wrote, I would've known about the fiber optics, so I'll back off on the reliability comment as far as that goes.

I will say that overall, the C240 felt lighter than its actual weight and tossable and with the 6-speed, I probably would've had more fun, as you suggest. Given the choice between what was the 323i, an Audi A4 and the new C240, I'd probably opt for the C more readily than I would've in the past. I would expect that the overall build quality of the C would, over time, show its superiority over the other two makes.

After all. We're all interested in making the fun last longer, aren't we?
