Thanks for the answer. My question was just about the feature. Whether it is there or not.

By the way, it is there now in their "Avantgarde 4" model of C220d.

I agree that memory seats function is not useful for all. Like for me, it is not a big deal as no one else would drive the car except me.

However, I do feel it is a must if there are multiple drivers for the car as every time finding the perfect driving position takes some time and patience.

Now the ride is far more supple and befits a Merc ride, suggest you do that if you are a lone rider without suggest most of the time, like me.
Done that - it still isn't any where close to the Laura in terms of ride, also there is excessive sideways motion when on undulating roads as compared to other cars.
Guess I have to live with it.

Yes - In the new C class ( all variants) , Mercedes quietly seems to have slipped in the 9 speed transmission ( earlier it was only on the 250D)
