Hell Akmal, welcome to the club!

What do you mean by an 04 car? I don't believe there are any model changes planed and it will only be an 04 car if its registered on or after 01/01/04

not true, the model year is indicated as an option listed in the EPC for the vehicle and also in the car's handbook, my car was manufactured in September 1998 and is a "1999" model, same goes for my previous car which was made in June 1998.

From what I've seen on the W211 they have been sorting out the issues all the time. The US do seem very fixated about the next year model, even though they are available from about July the year before!

I thought it was only V8 models that were having it fitted, so if you ordered a E500 it would be worth it as it cuts the 0-60 time and increases mpg.

Have a look at this thread:

It won't be fitted to the E270 or E320 though.
