My S204 is FINALLY here!

At last, over three months agony is over, a friend of mine called me this evening and said that my car was delivered outside my work, I threw myself in my wifes car and drove down with screeching tires ..

Tore open the plastics and coverings on the car like a child on christmas

Here are the first pics, sorry for crappy cell phone quality, but it was all I had





And the modding begins.....

I like the roof rail and 18" amg wheels...it's defintely more on the rally wagon side than your old typical station wagon...
BTW, did the car come debadged?

Congratulations, I know you've been active on this board for a while while waiting for your car to arrive. Have fun modding the ***** out of it!

Well I am no mother, but a father, I have a 2 year old son and fortunately he love cars as much as I do
Should also mention that Sweden is the home country for wagons, I red somewhere that we have the highest percentage in the world, I guess that is due to all the V70.s rollin here

@justthinking, I ordered the car debadged, looks a lot cleaner IMO.

S204 C220 CDI, VW Scirocco III 1.4TSI 160
Very nice! Looks great in white, too bad about the lack of a pano (for the black top) but it looks REALLY good in white. Is that a BlueEfficiency badge? New gen 220CDI 170ps?

makes you wonder why there is no option for them in the states - despite the fact that sales volume would be low...

Yes, I really wanted pano but went with Xenons and Easy Pack instead..

Also wanted the 220 CDI but it would have set me back an additional $7000, so its the small 180 Kompressor, 156ps
Still its the new M271 blue efficiency engine, hence the badge.

Whoa, prices vary a lot per country It's actually crazy... But at least that kompressor will remap nicely, what are the planned mods?

I really wished they have the wagon here instead of the awkwardly designed GLK.
You would think MB would save money on not developing the GLK and bringing in an existing model overseas instead.

To appeal to the SUV crowd, MB could have some kind of SUV styled version of the C-wagon, just like the Audi Allroad, Volvo Crosscountry, and Subaru Outback.

The Pano roof on the wagon doesn't go all the way to the back (stops short of the cargo area), so when viewed from behind you probably wont see the black roof like you do on the sedan.
I'm jealous.

Just got in after fitting my custom painted glossy black grille and fitting Osram Diadem front indicators, its a start

@Son Nguyen the car cost $49.000 with my setup.

@patrickkc, we have all of Mercedes available models here, the GLK as well I really like it, but I think the S204 is a sleeker and cleaner ride.
