sorry... no springs for the 4matic model. That's why I got the C350 instead of the C300 4matic. 4 wheel drive C300 is all they got here in Chicago.

did you check what's the stock spring pad in the rear?

I'm okay with the front ride height just want to lower the rear a little. wonder what spring pads did they use.

You be confused. Agility Control is a fancy name for the new (so they claim) shock absorber design which is standard on all W204's worldwide.

It's the dash button controlled Dynamic Handling Package that is not available in the underprivileged US market as yet.

don't know if you can read this. but here is what I found on Yahoo Taiwan auction.

looks like a set of Bilstein coilovers. It says it fits W203, W204, W209, W211.

H&R - no luck
KW - no luck
EIBACH - no luck

H&R has lowering springs for 4Matic but they don't sell it in the US so it's pretty hard to find one.

We are in for a wait as far as dampers go. KW does have a V3 coilover kit available. It's around $2,000 - $2,500. I can't remember the exact price their rep quoted.
sorry for ignorant question, but what are the specifics that make the coil overs better performing?

X3 and 2012 C coming soon
They are only better if you know how to dial them in. Most street cars are fine using trusted technology of spring and shock sets put out by manufacturers. Coilovers can be adjusted for certain applications that the car will likely never get used for.
