E43 AMG ordered, yay!








Ordered my first AMG last week, E43, fully loaded :-)

Cant't wait! Never had a 0-60 under 5 seconds car before. I was thinking about C63, but after testdriving the new E-Class I had no doubt. Hopefully the V6 biturbo will meet my expectations.

I live in Norway, but my plan is to pick it up at the factory in Sindelfingen, hopefully right before christmas :-) It's a 15 hour drive from where I live, and I get to drive it home on the autobahn ;-)

I envy you! U.S. still haven't announced it yet, settling for a E300 Production around mid November.

But it's coming to the US too, right..? E300 is not a bad alternative!

Nice!

Yeah, the 2017 update looks awesome (especially the interior). I can't wait to see what they do with the new E63s.

The E43 is in the latest order guide (posted here: https://mbworld.org/forums/e-class-w...ml#post6907015). It's not available on the U.S. configurator, but they are always painfully slow to have new models available there, but I would think that you should be able to order it.

The E43 is coming to the US next year.

I test drove an E300. The performance is marginal at best. It reminds me of my mid-70's 5 cyl E300D. Too bad the AMG 2.0L with 375 HP isn't offered in the E Class.

Oh man, you're tempting me to switch my order...

How much do you guys think a E43 will start at?

I think that a base E43 will sticker for about $65k. That's about $11k for the engine not counting additional features rolled into the base model such as Air Body Control, 4Matic and the 12.3" widescreen instrument cluster.

I really wish that the E400 would be released in the US. I'll probably end up buying either an MY17 E43 or a MY18 BMW 540i. Both should hit the US market near March 1, 2017.

Dang I might hold off for the E43 then if it starts around the 65k range. My fully loaded E300 comes in about 85k (before discount). Hoping a fully loaded E43 will come in around 90-100k.

I configured an E300 4Matic with 992, 215, P03, 322, 464, 489, 736, U80 and PAF for a list of about $74k.

I configured an E43 with similar equipment for a list of about $74k not counting the P03 package that isn't priced yet. It is important to note that the E43 has the 12.3" wide instrument display, Nappa leather, 19" wheels, 4Matic and air body control as standard.

The bottom line is that the price difference will be about the cost of P03.
That puts the price close to $90k. A matte finish and 3D sound will add another $10k.

Won't need the matte finish but probably will need the 3D sound :P

Don't envy him too much. The base price of this car in Norway is $135,000 without any options.

I'm so conflicted right now whether to switch my order or not. I want the V6 engine and the amg tuned 4matic but it also snows here and I could also use the E300's soft ride. What do you guys think?

Taxes on new vehicles in Norway are more than 100% aren't they?

This is a much better deal.

I'm thinking, if you can afford it - go for it! Sounds like you'll regret it if you don't!

I was going back and forth too, my first order was for a october build 4-cylinder, but I couldn't stop thinking about that 400hp V6...

Thank you! I can't wait either! Hoping the silver will look good with the AMG night package, my last car was black and I promised myself not to buy another black car - too much worrying about keeping it clean...

Thanks for the input guys! I pulled the trigger and asked the dealer to switch my order! I am so excited dealer told me he had to make sure the P3 package is available for that order as well (due to lack of P3 supply). Fingers crossed!

In Norway and Germany (Europe) it's 401hp? Why the difference..?
