I've specially ordered Thermotronic and I think it's a great option as they are easier to use and clearer to check it's operating status.

I'm actually surprised that Benz have not put digital temperature readouts as standard in their mid sized sedan as many other makers include them in their smaller cars as well as their larger executive models.

2003 E320 Obs Black/Ash
Black/Obs Black/Tectite/Black Opal Colors - USA

Does anyone know where I can see the difference between Black vs. Obs Black. I would also like to see what Tectite Gray and Black Opal look like (although Blakc Opal costs another $1150 or so). Also, I have seen a lot of interiors with charcoal and stone, but not ash. Where can I find the ash interior. Thanks.

I have been able to see Black, Black Opal, Obsidian Black and..Jade Black at dealers in the Seattle area.

The basic difference between the black and Obsidian Black is that Obsidian is a Metallic color...no premium in price so it makes sense to go with it over Black. I think it looks fantastic in light and does not seem to show the "swirls" that regular black does.

The jade black is pretty cool...black from a little ways off and in the shade..and then deep deep green in the sun and up close.

I opted to not go with it as I was afried that the resale down the road may not be good if the color did not go over.

Black opal is similar except deep blue.

I didn't like the Jade Black look.

I loved Black Opal and so did my wife - except they charge an extra $1100 for it. That sucks.

For E320 buyers, there is a $655 premium for any metallic color over the Black/White/Mid Blue colors. E500 owners - no diff.

Wood Wheel ... another pic:

The wood portion of the wheel is slightly darker than the interior wood trim.

MSRP = $500 ... which is what I paid. I didn't have to order it though; the car was on the lot with the wood steering wheel and I, (sorry, my wife and I), picked it.
