You're right about the cost of replacement tires, the 20" would be cheaper to replace compared to the 21" wheels but as they say, if you have ask (how much), you probably can't afford it. I'm going to get a fairly loaded GLE so I won't be skimping on the wheels. ;-)

German Configurator

The "Konfigurator" on the German website is really great. You can make all your color, wheel, upholstery & trim selections and get multiple views including 360-degree spin view. Almost everything is an extra there and it adds up quickly. I expect the US one to be up soon.

Thanks Greg for the heads-up about the German configuration tool. First time through I selected these options:
  • designo Diamond White (this would be our forth MB in this color, old habits)
  • 20” AMG 5-Spoke Wheels w/ Black Accents
  • White/ Black Nappa Leather
  • AMG Sport Steering Wheel
Some pics from 360 view:

Two very lovely cars to have "wound up" with lol.

I'm hoping so. The E300 and GLE350 need this engine IMO.

I knew I was in the Nighttime setting, designo Diamond White just looks so good at night. Here is a daytime exterior pic:

Espresso Brown / Magmagrey with the Natural grain brown walnut is also very appealing...

I'm confused - that does not show, nor does US DOG, a 2-tone like the name implies and as shown here (obviously an error):

I believe The Magmagrey is the color of the dash and door panels. The pictures you posted are different than the espresso brown that I posted. I got the names of the seating from the German sight.

No, the description is right on the Daimler website. What I was saying is the two-tone photos are wrong on both the German site and in the US DOG. They'll catch it at some point (that's why the DOG is "preliminary 1st draft" - there are always mistakes).

It could be wrong on the German site and in the US DOG but that is the name of the leather seating color I posted above. Here it is from the US DOG, this looks completely different from the pic you posted above which looks like cloth seating.

You'll notice the pic in the DOG of 204A Espresso Brown/Magmagrey Textured Leather is the same as the one for 114A Espresso Brown MB-Tex. Here is a close up of the Daimler photo which clearly shows the 2 colors and the "textured" (perforated) leather:

Maybe the pic is you found is the problem and that combo will not be offered in the US. The chart below (from the DOG) does not indicate two-tone seats for either code.

Either way, I just wanted to share what the brown seating option looked like for others. Looks good with the natural walnut wood.

Perhaps your right, but not terribly clear. Black/White Nappa Leather clearly has a two-tone seat. Espresso Brown/Magmagrey should be the same. If you look at the photo of Black/Tartufo it shows 2-tone, but the chart you refer to shows the seat as "tartufo." I think the term "up[holstery" is the whole seat and "seat" is the insert you sit on.

And the fact that the photo identification on the Daimler Media website clearly calls the one I posted that means one of the sources is wrong. I'm visiting my dealer tomorrow and will see if they can get clarific

That would be my first choice Joe...would look good with either the white or red, my two choices
I think that the AMG 53 also makes a case for resale? Spending in the 80ís 450 vs 90ís for the AMG seems to make more sense to me, ha ha. The combo gas electric is also intriguing. I will probably wait if itís only a few months. Whatís a few months when you will own the car for several years.

To my eyes that two tone seat is ugly with the grey. I like the solid brown one better. Just got home from a 650 mile trip and this thread is lots more interesting than the election coverage.

If it turns out they're two-tone leather (as shown in the pic Greg found above), I wouldn't select that combo. I agree with Ron, ugly. I hope they're solid Express Brown. Greg will find out more at his dealer tomorrow.

Maybe my tastes are not the norm? I am a architect so do have some design background. Iíve always liked the gray/brown combo. Would really like Saddle Tan!
