Now a member of the Mercedes family.

Hi all.
Greeting from down under. I've recently purchased a new W245 B200 Turbo - a gift to my wife for our 20th anniversary. After a few teathing problems (worst being a leaking sunroof that took 3 weeks to fix) we are enjoying the car - we regularly fight over who is going to drive!
The CVT transmission took a bit of getting used to, but with the turbo, this car flies . We went for the luxury pack which includes leather seats, wood trim, thermotronic air and all the usual goodies we get in Australia. It has been interesting to note in this forum which features are included in different countries and I have found it amusing reading about having winter tyres and heated seats. Today was 35 deg C and it is still only spring - Give me air conditionong and tinted windows anyday!
I'll post some photos in the W245 section.

Welcome to the forums Greg. Great selection on the colour, I purchased my A200 in Mountain Grey too. Hope you're enjoying your ride, I still do after 9 months and I'm glad the A200 comes standard with heated seats, it's suppose to be spring and it's still very cold on cloudless nights. Congrats once more!
