C200TCDI Sports Edition
Sold my soul to the dark side

Ok, so last Monday my C was nice and happy, looking pretty good and only months old.





Then some idiot didn't bother noticing that I had stopped and did this to my car.





I then had a big dilemma on my hands, my wife is very pregnant and due any day now so we needed a car asap, our other car only has 2 seats, not good for a family. Our insurance company were very sympathetic, they wrote the car off and have arranged an immediate payout.

Yippee I thought new w204 here I come, I love them they are the best looking cars that Mercedes currently make, they drive superbly, but bad luck there isn't a single C220 CDI AMG sportpack stationwagon in Norway, an order will take 3 months, we couldn't wait that long. So out of total desperation I turned to the dark side, my local BMW dealer had a 320d Touring with Msport kit on the lot ready for delivery, much to my shame I bought it.









I will be back in a Mercedes soon, we have to replace our second car in a wee while so maybe an SLK or GLK will be joining the 3 series in the garage.

BTW are there any BMW pages as good as this one.

I did give the 330i some thought as well. But MB responded with the W204, That's a nice car and colour to match, congratulations, and stay safe.

why do you always have to get ''touring'' models lol ?
the m-sport kit is really nice.
my brother has it on his 335 coupe.

but yeah.. why touring?

Touring models have more space, the station wagon version of the w204 has more rear seat room than the sedan, plus the bigger boot helps with carrying all the stuff two little boys need whenever you go anywhere. They also look better in my opinion.

The wheels you used for the winter tires on the S203 are pretty rare. Both your summer and winter sets are some of my favorites for that car.

The set for my winter tyres are pretty much standard from Mercedes in Norway, the summer wheels were what sold the car to me in the first instance, I'm really sad to see the car go.

Are you painting a bullseye on the back of this one?

Congrats on the new car and glad you weren't hurt.

That's for the pointer, e90post is a very good site, I can't believe the amount of traffic all for one model of car, they even have a pretty good european subsite. It's also a bad site because I have already found a few mods formy car like some very sexy looking carbon fibre splitters which will make the car look even meaner.

Nice! If the W204 estate was over here in the US, I'd have it right now instead of the sedan.

Your 3-series front-end looks great!!!

Congratulations.
