New to forum

Hi all,

New to this forum but have owned several E-class models since 1998. I currently drive a 2004 E-500 4-Matic.

I recently placed an order for a 2010 E-350 4-Matic which should be delivered by early November.

Iridium Silver
Black Leather
Black Ash wood trim
Sport Package
Premium 2 Package
Drive Dynamic Seats

I was going to contemplate ordering the AMG wheel package until I read the following disclaimer:

Lower aspect ratio tires and accompanying wheels provide substantiality increased tread wear, increased tier noise and reduced comfort. Serious wheel and tire damage may occur if the vehicle is operated on rough or damaged road surfaces upon encountering road debris or obstacles. These tires are not designed for use on snow or ice. Winter tires mounted on appropriately sized and approved wheels are recommended for driving in those conditions.

Since I am ordering a 4-matic and will be driving the car on snow and ice in the winter the AMG wheel package would not be a good fit for me.

Anyhow I do like the 5 spoke standard sport wheels but I won't be able to get the 3 spoke sport steering wheel. Oh well.

Welcome to the Forum. The AMG wheels are nice, but you are better off without them. Post pictures of the E350 when you get it.
