AMG Performance Pack (P30)
AMG Differential Lock
AMG 19" wheels

Electric Rear Roller Blind

I'll post some photos once we take delivery, the Dealer thinks that will now be early September 2011. I can't wait...

I would be willing to sacrifice my time to drive it back for you!

They are most impressive cars for sure.

Aeroman, congrats! Must be one of the first cars with PPP!

Btw, is climate control an optional extra? I thought Luxury climate control is standard equipment now and have not specced it (don't even know the option code).

Thanks Guys, certainly looking forward to getting it!

Thanks also Charles for the offer, but it's already committed for shipment. :)

The differential lock is MB-speak for a limited-slip differential Darrell. On my new vehicle order from MB - Luxury Automatic Climate Control (581) is charged at £590.00 Michele, so I guess it is not standard. :dk:

I decided to see what the new dash looks like before deciding whether to have it leather-clad by AMG, as Palmball did. Certainly, it looked pretty good as standard at Geneva.

Thank you for letting me know. Have to talk to the dealer then. Ouch, extra 590.

What do you think about driving assistance package - distronic plus mainly?

C63 (W204) and C240 (W202) - just not at the same time!
Great spec, enjoy, much fun ahead of you.

TBH Michele I've never driven a car with it knowingly fitted so couldn't really make a value judgement based on experience.

Whilst I do like the electronic toys (COMAND, etc) I'm not to keen on anything that may dilute the driving experience, hence LSD rather than relying solely on ESP. :D

Great choice of car......you will be missing a memorable experience by not making the time to collect......I collected my SL and even Mrs.B remembers the whole experience fondly.

I have the Distronic + on the S-Class and would not have another car without it. That's one of the reasons i waited 18 months for the CL even though it's only disronic.

I know the 63 is a totally different car. If you are doing a lot of Motorway driving it's great and even in London traffic it works well.

Thanks again guys, but as MicB and rizzer have mentioned I'm really disappointed not to have been able to pick the car up from AMG. :(

Interesting what you say about the Distronic+ Peter, as it's quite an expensive option maybe you can give more details of why you like it so much and what the difference is between the normal and the Plus?
