How does the C280 Sport differ from the C280?

Are the Sport's front seats better?

Pretty nice seats.

On my 97 C280 Sport, the sport package came with:

A tighter turning ratio
Sport steering wheel
Fake carbon fiber trim
Leather upholstry
Sport seats
AMG 15" monoblock wheels
Stiffer shocks and larger upper control arm
And of course, Sport badging

In 98, the Sport package was modified slightly
