    I would be hesitant to extrapolate from the existing 4 MATIC on demand Haldex type system found on the current transverse engined A class MFA chassis cars to RHD rear wheel drive MRA "fore and aft" layout cars like the new up and coming C class. :dk: If its true it flies in the face of all the gainsayers including MB ! that told us for years that there was very limited market demand for AWD cars in the UK and it was simply not economically viable to develop a RHD 4matic version of the C and E class. :wallbash: As I have said for years if Mercedes wanted to win back market share from AUDI then they should offer a 4MATIC option on their RHD models. :thumb: Its a welcome development but I will believe it when I see it!:rolleyes:

    Takes away the Fun of having a true 500bhp rear wheel drive car. One of the reasons I stepped away from Audi.

    Its German, has a round badge, reminds me of a Mercedes. Satan fuelled
    Now if it has suspension that can be adapted too....and a soft top version......might have to get rid of the rollerskate for one.:thumb:
