Time for a C238 forum?

As the new models are starting to hit the showrooms and peoples drives/garages, wondering if it isn't time for an admin to create a C238 forum? Just thinking out loud ...

Certainly would like to see a new thread started as well. Just took delivery of my '18 E400 A (A238) Cabriolet - Lunar Blue with the "Nautical Interior" and black top / AMG trim / P3. A beautiful automobile. Took her in today for the license plates and several of the dealership supervisor types surrounded the car to get a close look. They had not seen one yet in that color combo.

She's a "dandy". Great color combo. Happy motoring.

I bet someone will get it going. On a percentage basis, cabs and coupes [3-5% of sedan] just don't represent much volume....

Don't think the 'volume' has much to do with the need ... seems it would be easier to search for C238 questions/issues/comments/etc in a dedicated forum than having to wade though the current C207 forum. Right now, there seem to be as many Coupe questions in the W213 forum as here ... only because of the new model more identifying to the 213 than the 207. Just thought the same logic/consideration would apply to the C238's as was shown to the W213's back in January 2016.

Yeah, it's time. The A/C 207 owners don't need A/C 238 owners mucking up their forum.

I asked VIC55 [long time mod] if a new forum could be started, but he mentioned it was an admin decision based on when a new model was due a subsection

Add me to the request. Looking at A238 for next vehicle. I’d like to hear from new owners - thoughts and reviews after driving it.

thanks

Interesting...that color is only offered on the 25th anniversary model E400 Cab in the US. They come with a Designo white and maroon leather interior and many standard options. The front valance also differs from the European version. Thanks for sharing these pictures. Good luck with your new ride.

that color ... Rubellite Red ... is now being offered in some overseas markets in the coupe as well. have asked MBUSA if it would be available in the U.S. market beginning with the MY '19 run ... as of 3 months ago, this was their 'official' position:

Color Rubellite Red (currently available on 25th Anniversary Edition Cabriolet) is being looked to open up for MY19 on the E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet. We're unable to 100% confirm it in case there is a constraint.

Have they said yet whether there will be more engine options forthcoming other than e400 Cabrio?

You could probably expect the cab/coupe for MY '19 to follow what has been announced for the E-series sedan:

E350 4Matic
-2.0L inline-4 turbo engine with EQ Boost
-295 hp, 295 torque
-EQ Boost outputs 13 hp and up to 111 lb-ft
-5.6 sec 0-60

E450 4Matic
-3.0L V6 biturbo engine
-362 hp, 369 torque
-5.3 sec 0-60

in addition to the str8-line 6 for the E53 models
