I love my BMW, but the wife seems to be stuck on Mercedes. She's got a 2009 C300 and the best mod I've found for it adds a whopping 28 hp for $1500. No thanks. We've had the 2013 or 2014 C250 for a loaner while ours was in the shop (been in several times, but the BMW hasn't been in yet. On the other hand, Mercedes is good at getting you a loaner, while you have to be on a list for a month to get a BMW loaner). The C250 is a 1.8L 15psi boosted engine with severe turbo lag. I was not impressed. Our last trip to the dealer, we saw the new C300s & C400s out and the salesman claimed they fixed the lag of the C250. The C300 is a 2L turbo while the C400 is the 3L biturbo. Chances are that the wife's next car will be a C300 or C400 - the C400 comes in a 4-seater convertible that she really digs. I'm glad to see you're developing some tunes for these cars. I hope you can do something similar to the JB4 where I can turn the tune off when she drives and turn it on when I drive, then I will surely get the Benz tune when the time comes!
