Costco Oshawa has the Miel C3 Complete, in Blue 389.99.
I haven't found a C3 for under 400 yet, has the Turbo Brush and the Bare floor Tool, 5 bags included.

I thought most Costco's had this by now. I've seen them in Calgary at this price since the summer.

It's a good deal, considering Complete C3 Limited Edition goes on sale for 399 without turbo brush and 4 extra bags. Brush itself is about $130.

Is the turbo brush enough for carpet cleaning?

it's an air-driven brush, much like the dyson canisters too.
so it's good for low/medium pile carpeting.

if your whole house is carpeted it's worth getting something with an electric brush.

but the price point on this is very good.


also, one thing to note when vacuuming with the air-driven brush is that you can rotate the logo to let in air so the rollers can spin on thicker carpets.

I have the Miele C1, with air turbo brush. I have short carpet, so it does okay. The power Miele vacuums are a fair bit pricier, I think the C2 power one is around $699. Before I had a Hoover vacuum with power head, but it broke. I think that vacuum did a slightly better job with the power head. The Miele vacuums are very good though, only downside is the cost of bags but I can't stand the canister vacuums personally - trying to empty them just seems to make more mess.

If you have a lot of carpet, I would save up a bit more and try and get a Miele power head vacuum on sale if you can find a reasonable discount.

Just to add, electric brushes can't be purchased separately for this or any other models that didn't come with one out of the box as they do not have the electrical contacts needed to power it. The cheapest Miele vacuum that does come with an electric brush is the C1 Cat & Dog which is $699 so it's a big jump up in price.

Are there any good quality aftermarket or better OEM brushes out there?

I'm disappointed in the upholstery tool and the floor/carpet tools included with these vacuums, the vacuum units and filters are great but these cheap stiff nylon bristles feel like a dollar store joke. No comparison to my parent's ancient kenmore vacuum, think it was thick horsehair and extremely soft.

there are lots of nozzles you can buy.
the best brush for hardwood/tile in my opinion is the SBB-300.. combination of horsehair and synthetic fibers.
for dusting, the SUB-20 flexible brush also has horsehair.

Miele Combos are very confusing, and since accessories cost a fortune, it's hard to compare them directly as many of them include different accessories.

To clarify:
Costco packages come with:
1 C3 Vacuum
1 Non power wand and 1 non power tubing
1 SBD 285 for hardwood/laminate/maybe very low profile carpet
1 STB 305 air powered rotating brush (most other retailer does not include this). Good for low to medium profile carpet. Cost about 129
4 bags. (most other retailers does not include these). Cost about 20

(For reference, the one on sale at Best Buy and McHardy for 399 (regular 599) is usually the C3 with all above except: STB 305 and 4 bags)

The 2 biggest decision for Miele vacuum is
a. Which canister you like (C1 (made in China), C2, C3, etc). The higher end are sealed and have an option to get HEPA filter
b. If you are likely going to need the powerhead (SEB series) attachment for medium to thick carpet.

a. C1, C2, C3 is easier to decide
b. In order to use SEB powerhead, you will need both power connected version of the wand and tubing (which the costco and other cheaper version does not provide). These are very expensive on its own, and would be better just get the versions with SEB power head included already.

Hope this help clarify a few things.

nice summary, however, one minor edit.
all vacuums are sealed, you can get a HEPA filter for every vacuum.
all but the classic c1 has a rubber seal.

There are 4 series for Miele
Compact C1 (assembled in China) - as the name suggest, compact in nature and uses their smaller red FJM Bags. has a 9m (29.5ft) cleaning radius and a standard cord rewind mechanism
Classic C1 (assembled in Germany) - larger blue bag, Gn, lightest of them all and has a 9m (29.5ft) cleaning radius and standard cord rewind mechanism
Compact C2 (Assembled in Germany) - Compact vacuum, uses the smaller red (FJM) bags, has a 10m (33ft) cleaning radius and a one-touch cord rewind mechanism.
Complete C3 (Assembled in Germany) - largest vacuum, uses the larger blue (GN) bags, has a 11m (36ft) cleaning radius and a one-touch cord rewind mechanism. Also has the dusting brush, uphostry brush and crevice nozzle under a panel on the vacuum rather than sit in a holder on the hose

as you mentioned, It is never worth the cost to convert a vacuum from a non-power head to one that is.. the cost of the hose/wand / head is often the same or more than a vacuum with it.
