But those things are very minor and nothing to write home about regardless of how many people retrofit them and definitely not going to transform the F30 interior into what the C-Class has/is.

The main adjustment to the worlds best premium sedan will be new engines and adjustments to the steering as well as modern updated technology and a Plug in Hybrid Drive 330e.
In order to keep the 3er as the benchmark in the segment.

In regards to the C-Klasse. Whilst it may look like an S-Klasse the key difference from an S-Klasse is that the metal details might be metal in the S-Klasse , they are not in the C-Klasse.
Those things are expected but other than the improvement in steering, many are happy with how the pre-LCI F30 performs, the updates are a bonus. Many gripes of the F30 is and will always be the interior. Some people didn't like it compared to the E9X and these concerns got worse after the C-Class was introduced. Not sure why people think BMW is going do a serious upgrade to the interior, it has never happened before.
