    New W204 C-Class owners discussion

    I do like the black finished grill instead of grey/silver - makes the horizontal chrome stand out more. Cheaper to spray my own one black no doubt!!!

    Well its a C Class Coupe for me!

    Good choice. My average MPG after 7K miles as per the computer is over 50 mpg - mainly work and 80% of that on motorway through 50mph roadworks. Good fun on the back roads with the sport button and paddles. Enjoy!

    Driving in Europe - experience share

    TBH in happened to us as well in Stuttgart and Ulm. They were not really interested but better safe now for 5 Euros instead of a 40 Euro fine each time!

    Cologne is one of at least 32 German cities that operate a Low Emission Zone Badge system in City Centres and other named areas. The rule applies to ALL cards regardless of where they come from. Costs can vary on this 4 colour badge system depending on the type of car. I think Berlin is the...
