Awesome pics. Your car looks great. Is that your EZ pass stuck to the window? Usually people stick them in the middle.. interesting spot to keep it.

yeah, was wondering that myself. Is that where you chose to put the ezpass tag, or where they recommend?

Was also wondering what those tall things with green fronds on top were? Shouldn't the leaves have fallen by now in the ~30 degree temps?

And then was wondering where the heII everyone was? Tumbleweed city! Plus, what's with all the open space? Wouldn't you want to put, say, about 200-250 houses in those open spaces in the pics? Figure on standard lot of about 60x80, you could build a bunch-of-houses! Must be a poor part of the country that can't afford trees which molt in the fall, people who can't afford cars and thus don't clog the roads, and too poor to build on every piece of available earth aroudn them!

(BTW, if you didn't figure it out, my jealousy says You Suck!)

LOL! wow that was funny. I just put the sunpass/EZpass there and had no proplems... yet? they are building apartments right behind me in that photo. O and its Orlando thats why there is no dead trees and ugly weather (thank god I live here) and on that road its only to I4 and world drive (rarely people need to take unless going to downtown or disney) thats the reason for the lack of cars.

Thanks Guys For All Your Comments! Keep them coming!

I thought you ordered the P2 package? Why are your headlamps not Bi-xenon?

Sweet! Just a crazy thought- but it seems like there is a nice little Orlando/Kissimmee/Celebration group going here. Anyone interested in starting a MB Club. I belonged to one for my old car (Toyota) and we used to just meet up once in a while and hang out. Nothing stupid like some of these other car clubs (just casual). Let me know.
My C300 will being going under the knife. I was on my way to Melbourne and a frickin semi hit a construction cone and it flew out into the road. I swerved but nailed it with my passenger mirror. Totally destroyed it and scratched the window. Already took it to the shop and they were over $2000 and still going. Had it less than a month and I'm about to thow up about it.

^ OUCH! Thank god it isnt real work tho. Seems small with just a mirror but still OUCH! but could be worse.

I would love to make a club but again Im not a car guy (trying to learn) so I dont think I would belong running a club let alone being in one lol.

Did you check the paper that was on your window with details of the options on your car? It doesn't look like Bi-X

The Bi-xenons have smaller inner circular rings than the normal ones.

https://mbworld.org/forums/c-class-w204/195655-official-c-class-picture-thread.html

Take a look at this thread. The silver one has the Bi-xenon headlamps while the black one has the normal Halogen headlamps.

Ok so i see the diffrence but how come i have p2 tail lights and p1 head lights? i like the cirular look more with the p1 head lights and i could always just put new bulbs in for a brighter output. Am i the only one with this combo? P1 headlights and P2 tail lights?

Did you order P2? Did P2 include bi-xenon headlamps at the time you ordered it? It could be a factory mix up, but if P2 did include bi-xenons I'm surprised you didn't catch it!

P2 always included Bi-X lights. You should go back to dealer and get an explanation plus refund for not having the complete option package.

P2..doesn't look like it...

<<How do you tell if they are bi-xenon or not??>>

The inner light (high beam) would look about the same diameter as the outer lens in which the bulb would not be visible. With halogen outer lights, the inner reflector is substantially larger.Not to mention the visibility after dark.

Does this car have, for example, folding rear seats?

It's tough to tell from these pics. They're daytime pics too so the camera might not show the blueish hues. You can definitely tell the difference at night.
