Question Difference of W204 C250 and C300/C350 part-wise?

I have a C250 CGI W204, 2011 and have been looking for some extras to add in to my car (e.g. lips, fenders, spoilers) but many of the things I see in eBay, online or in online dealers are for C300 and C350 but not the C250; very rarely I see an option to choose a C250 as opposed to the more common C300/C350 option.

Are they the same dimensions, as in, could I fit a C300/C350 part on to a C250? Like an example, I buy a roof spoiler made for C350s, with the intention of placing it on my C250, possible?

And on top of that, C63 AMG is completely different right (I can't fit any of C63 parts to C250)?

Thanks in advance.

C250 is the same for exterior. Any C300 or C350 exterior part will work for your car. There are some parts on c63 that will work but the majority won't. Hood, fenders, bumper ext are all the same but some parts will fit onto a non amg c class C63 diffuser for example is a straight swap.

Just keep an eye out for luxury/sport configuration as some parts are different and keep an eye out on pre facelift and facelift options

Thanks for the detailed answer! Exactly what i was looking for

But regarding the pre-facelifts and facelifted version, how do I differentiate which one is which, and what currently is on my car now? I believe I have a pre-facelift...? *confused* lol. And if I do get a facelifted part, would it fit to a pre-facelifted car?

So luxury and sports parts are interchangeable you say? Like if my car is luxury i can still swap with a sports item ?

It depends what you are looking for. In North America pre face lift is 2008-2011. In 2012 the c class got a facelift. The front bumper, headlights and bumper are all different. The rear bumper is different as well. The interior got some updates as well so you will have to be specific about which parts you plan on changing because some will fit and some will not. Sport to luxury is interchangeable as well. There are minor differences between them.

Oh great ! Thanks for the help.

From the pic below (only pic of my car), is mine the facelifted ver. or no? Quite certain the headlights are different from the 2012-2013 versions, so leaning towards the "no" answer.

And Sports version means Avantgarde?

You probably have a 2011 pre face lift version. Also I see you have a sports grille and a luxury front bumper. I think its called sports elegance (half luxury half sports)

That is a final pre facelift Avantgarde with BiX & Parktronic. US cars are differently configured.

Here is after facelift.

Avantgarde only partially = US Sport model. US Sport models have things missing & also use an AMG style front bumper/spoiler. That AMG spoiler etc. is part of the Sport Pack in some markets. In other markets the AMG style bumper is not available.
