Finally got round to recording the cold start on my W205 with the iPhone. I did the same with my old 507 - that had secondary cats removed at the time - interesting to compare with the W205, which has the AMG Performance exhaust.

W205 C63S - sports exhaust ON:



W204 C63 507 - no secondary cats:



Its hard to call it really - both sound good.

I preferred my 507 overall (except for the interior which is fantastic on the new car).

Engine I would say the M156 and maybe exterior but everything else goes to 205, the way it drives is miles ahead of the 204, imo.

w204 dash is appalling, for that alone, I could never buy one.

I'd agree with that - 205 is a superior car but 204 just has that little edge in character - it's the 6.2 that does it, although the new car is blisteringly fast...

Don't think the facelift dash is bad at all personally.

It isn't but when you have lived with both the 204 seems very archaic in comparison (IMO)

The 204 interior looks really nice from pics, but then I do have a C55 lol.

Cold start up vid doesn't really do either cars justice. A fly by at full throttle will do the trick:thumb:
