2018 C43 AMG Brilliant Blue Metallic
They seemed to not know everything about the car but was still a fun review to watch.

The car sounded awesome

B9 Allroad, C43 Wagon Ordered!
I can't wait till mine shows up in May. Glad I went with the full LCD display instead of the analog one.

Glad to see that review.

I've got almost the same C43 Wagon showing up in May. Brilliant Blue w/ the 19" multispoke rims and no Night Package.

The only changes to my build are that I added the tech package (LCD instruments + Multibeam LED lights), Red AMG leather, skipped the HUD and went with the oak wood trim instead of CF - I had to trim some options somewhere.

Fortunately/Unfortunately in Canada, if you want the AMG Performance Exhaust (which you do) most of the option boxes come checked. we don't get the same level of a-la-carte as the US builds.

Were those the base seats in the review?

Finite - where are you located? sounds like we have a similar build coming around the same time.

I'm in Calgary.

I was considering blue, but I just came from a blue car and didn't want to repeat so I went with Diamond White. I pretty much picked all the packages - Premium, Drivers, Intelligent Drive, Tech, Night(black multi spoke wheels) with AMG performance seats, red seat belts and Walnut open-pore trim. I also went without the HUD as a few of my coworkers hated it on their CLA45 and C63.

Build date is April 1st and should be done about 3 weeks later. Hopefully in time for my birthday in the middle of May.

Nice, I've been looking to get into blue again - I've had a white A4 Avant for the last 7 years - I got one of the last ones in Ontario. I've been looking to move up to a "S" level of performance, but Audi didn't/hasn't brought over an S4 wagon, so I've joined the Mercedes clan.

I love the Electric future, but nothing is offered in my price range in the body style I am looking for - maybe next time. The Model Y currently looks closest, but is still likely 2 years out

Also glad that Mercedes offers a few colours outside of the black---grey color palette Looked at the SQ5 and the color options were drab.

Caddy CTS, buying C43

simple. US rules require every car and variety of powertrain to be individually certified....so, an engine and transmission alone isn't ok...Sedan and wagon and coupe are three certifications....add manual, now six certifications...so US sellers rapidly ask what sells, and what does not, so we don't get all the oddballs, and a manual wagon, and, etc.

You end up with a stick in the one sport version and automatics everywhere else.

I'd have bought a wagon C43, but, no...

Fully agree, curious that they did go through with the E63S Wagon - can't sell that many of them in a year, but then I guess it is a Halo car and enough profit margin in the $100k+ USD price to make it worthwhile. Would have loved to go with that; but even used ones <5 years old with reasonable mileage here is same or more than a new C43 Wagon.

Nice...I've changed my mind from a new CLS to a C43 wagon ( facelift) , next year when I get rid of my E220d. And this is the colour I'll go for, with AMG performance exhaust of course!
