jhb, you are right. It certainly is not the US version. It is not the sports version either - because of the wheels and no skirts. It has got a logo. So, if it is not the sports version, not a US version and has got a logo, then it must be from a country where they have the Classic, Elegance and Avantgarde versions.
Yes you are right it is not a USA version. It is a right hand drive version for Singapore. The color type is called Travertine Beige - metallic (ELEGANCE). It cost me about US$148900 without option. You can check out the details throu this link http://www.mercedes-benz.com.sg/

another i discovered witht he E class is the night gentle lighting system. looks awesome! low accents of light is on the lamps and door handles etc. really makes you feel like in the cabin of an airplane.
I have noticed that no kilometers on the speedometer anymore. Is it only for specific styles? Does it mean that Canadian models do not have miles? Or maybe the scale electronically generated and can be switched back and forth? if it's so, than it's really cool.
