The lack of chrome on the front bumper makes the noise look just that bit sporter in my opinion on the sport.I thought the only difference is that there is less chrome on the sport version and the seats now come with the comfort package that used to be a paid option. Personally I would have kept the chrome on the front and side rear.
Seat Comfort package – driver and front passenger seat
Electro-pneumatic four-way lumbar support and manual seat cushion depth adjustment (6 cm)
I know some of the individual options have been dropped as I was advised that my wheel option and Burmester radio is now a no goer.
Wonder if there has been any hidden mechanical parts changed to improve reliability?
Saw a MY16 S205 Sport at MB World today, the lumbar switch is on the side of the seat.
The mirrors missing the chrome is unnoticeable if you ask me.
The car was in hyacinth red, looked really good seriously considering plumping up the extra £200 and changing from palladium silver (as long as it doesn't change my expected delivery date of mid September).
Pick mine up next week. Will let you know what it does then!I wonder if the Electro-pneumatic four-way lumbar support is operated from a control on the door or the actual seat? To be honest I am not sure what a Electro-pneumatic four-way lumbar support actually is so does anyone know?
Thanks for this, fantastic info and really helpful. I've checked the spec and it does indeed say "806 - technical modifications (06)" therefore I guess that's confirmation it's MY16. Good news!On the spec sheet provided by dealer. Has the shipping dates and factory option codes. 806 - technical modifications (06) is what you're looking for and C220d.
Mines an estate (s205) so in essence the same.

I've searched around but nobody seems to know the actually changes from the MY15 to MY16 do you have any ideas? I thought Mercedes would have had a simple statement telling people.
