This car is so solid from a design standpoint it's not even funny.

I may be alone on this one, but does anyone else find similarities in the overall look of the W204 next to the W202? It seems as if some of the W202's angular features have rubbed off on the design of the W204. A good thing, if you ask me.

I was thinking the same thing. I have a 99 C280 Sport and when saw the Ash interior with the black dash was thinking damn that looks familiar. I like it alot. Going to check them out in person this weekend.

Very hot!

Nice pics! You can definitely see the lines of the S-Class in the second and third pictures.

'08 C300 Lux Barolo Red Beige Leather P2 MM 18" wheels '84 944
Which model?

<<last month i finally took the new c for a long trip... destination Acapulco... despite being quite busy down there with the kids and all I manage a couple of pics.....>>

This car is a bit unusual. Outside it's a US Luxury model including the Lux wheels but with a Sport grill. And no AMG body kit. Inside it appears to be a Sport with the aluminum trim. Was it built in Mexico?

I've mentioned this before...

...but maybe it bears repeating:

The "Lux" in the US is the Elegance package from the general world market, with the Avantgarde's wheels.

The "Sport" in the US is the Avantgarde package in the rest of the world, tarted up with most of the AMG package mods, including the silly looking side skirts, front dam, etc.

What I would love to be able to buy here is the straight EU Avantgarde model - the star grill, simpler interior, but without the AMG "go-fast" add-ons. There are lots of pix of this model, right from the start of this thread, and including the latest shots above.

I recognize that is is probably a minority opinion here....but I think the AMG skirts make the car look bottom-heavy. The wheel choices don't interest me much - I don't do staggered sizes or unidirectional tires.

Luxury vs Avantgarde

<<What I would love to be able to buy here is the straight EU Avantgarde model - the star grill, simpler interior, but without the AMG "go-fast" add-ons. I don't do staggered sizes or unidirectional tires.>>

All you have to do is buy the Sport grille conversion kit ($171) from the dealer and you will have the exterior appearance you want. Which I am considering for my incoming Luxury.

My dealer now has six 204s in the showroom, two white C300 Luxurys with beige Tex interiors, three C300 Sports and a C350 Sport with black/gray and 17" AMG wheels. None with Multimedia, of course. The C350 and one of the white/beige Luxurys are side by side and I must say after comparing the two, it's a slight possibility that I could live with the black/gray interior just to get a 350. I'd have to start all over, needless to say.

This change would cost me an additional $2200.

<<I don't do staggered sizes or unidirectional tires.>>

I do.

I do.
If you are converting your grille to the sport one, are you willing to sell the traditional grille and hood ornament?

Grille

<<If you are converting your grille to the sport one, are you willing to sell the traditional grille and hood ornament?>>

Yes, very likely. That's a few months away, of course.

My salesman just emailed me that a Barolo Red with beige interior C300 (like mine) has appeared at the dealer today (no leather or Multimedia) so I will be going down tomorrow to see it.

205 HP, that's awesome. What's the torque rating now?
Was it done via a remap only? Any other way, I guess will be visible to the dealer when you get it serviced and will invalidate your warranty.

Hey guys, what do you think of my build request I have been sending to internet sales departments?

You guys think this is a good deal? What are some of you guys paying for your 2008 C300 and C350 orders out the door???

Let me know, very curious. See my standard email below:

Hello. Email offers only. Please do not call. Please do not negotiate. Only will accept invoice with tax and tags. If called I will not deal with dealership. If emailed anything other than invoice I will not deal with dealership. (See requested build below).

C350 Sport

Interior Color: Grey/Black (Non-Leather)
Wood Trims: Black Birdseye Maple
Options:
Panorama Sunroof
18" AMG 5-Twin-Spoke Wheels

Multimedia Package

My offer based on true invoice price is $42,000 OTD

I can wait till OCT/NOV if this car in my requested specification has to be ordered.

Thank You for condsideration.

Let me know how you would like to proceed.

Thanks,
