    Nice colour, 4Matic? from MB or Independent?

    Does the C200 have a 1.5 litre engine?

    Better luck this time!

    Completely agree with Ian. Stunning car but no way I’d be running with that engine - it’ll be a complete disappointment after the six cylinder in the E70. It’s got plenty of grunt and the E class taxis I spend so much time in are reasonably refined, but wouldn’t settle on a C200 if you’ve just been considering a Porsche.

    I’m going down to local Mercedes dealer to have a look and blag a test drive.
    We were in there yesterday looking at the showroom car, stunning colour but chrome trims...

    I’ve had a word with myself and putting Porsche plans on hold, 6 years min!

    Jeez thats really poor.

    What you might expect from a poor back street Arthur Daley, not from a distributor of one of the most prestige brands.

    That's such a shame, owning a Porsche should be a positive experience and that includes the hunting for and buying bit of it.
    We looked at the C200AMGline a little while ago, and while Mrs M would have been happy with it I was left a little underwhelmed with the performance. Very nice place to be though.

    That sums it up. Better start looking for a 6 cylinder version Sean.

    I would challenge the comments on the c200 as the power plant is very competent and ride very composed!
    What about the C250d Premium Plus & Night pack!
    In the flesh the blue is a marmite colour, beautiful in the showroom not so in daylight, where as the white is stunning in daylight....

    It's only my personal opinion, but I just do not like white cars. I find them anaemic, but they do seem popular with owners today.
    So I would opt for the blue one every time. I just like to see some colour on a car, other than black or white. :whistle:

    I'm afraid I'm with mieke on this one. I don't dislike white cars per se but it's nice to see a pop of colour every now and then.

    In whole I’d agree, for the past 8 years I’ve owned black or dark cars, the upkeep is hard
    No sooner washed than needing washed due to my OCD on shine
    Whereas the wife’s car, we previously had dark and for the past 3 years we’ve been spoiled with the White Audi,
    (Tomorrow we “should” of been picking up the new “white” Audi however delivery has been delayed until Start / Middle of Month......)
    Regardless white is a very easy to maintain colour, can be polished and shines every bit as good as Black, stays clean longer and hides marring and swirls much better....

    The C200 is apparently a 2.0 Turbo, the c180 is apparently the 1.5, salesman’s words not mine
    I had the C200 out today, it’s no slouch, granted it’s not rapid and had to be worked in the low gears though plenty fast enough allbeit the 9g box can be surprised and lazy! No destinct kickdown double tap!

    another sales man that does not know what he is selling, if you bought that car after speaking to that sales man could you have the dealership for mis selling ?

    the C 200 used to be a 2,0 L Turbo but it is now a 1.5 L turbo tell that salesman to go read the spec sheet of the cars he is selling

    Well Bowl me over - Lip service means heeho
    This time I was unreliably informed by Mercedes Aberdeen and test drove the C200, 1.5l Turbo, even more surprising!

    Tomorrow I’m taking a jaunt to Dundee for a C250d, please tell me that has 2.2 Engine.......
