MB W211 E 280 2007-2009

Hi folks!
New this forum and will buy my first Mercedes. (Earlier BMW)
Some questions I would have needed help with.
On the way to buy one of the remaining W211 models, an E 280 Avantgarde.
(Europe/Sweden)

The car is produced in 2007/6, but completely new.
My question is, was there any changes on the car since then?
Eg compared to a car made 2008 / 8.

When did the come with the extra scratch resistant clearcoat and
the twin pipe exhaust system with oval stainless tailpipes?


Thanks!

There are always facelifts every few years. Post 2006 most of the electrical grimlins gone, may or may not have sbc. nano paint from 2004. twin pipe from 2004.

Ask your merc dealer.

What I want to know is that I have seen E280 MY2007 with visible exhaust pipes and the same model without them . This applies to cars without the sport package. (know that the sports package otherwise have them)

Thanks

Here is an another example.
A car with visible exhaust pipes.

Why have some and some not?
Would be very interesting to know whether this was slightly modified certain production date.

Found cars produced late as 2007/7 without this visible pipes.

Judged from the lights and the trunk lid chrome strip, it is a face lift car. But it could as well be a pre-facelift with those parts changed.

For the OP, that also applies to the exhaust pipes, if one owner fits visible pipes, that car would appear different from what it was from the factory. You would have to look at EPC to see what came from the factory with each car and with which options.

Looking at the two photos, the licence plate is the same on both, looks like the latter is a poor version of after market visible exhaust pipes, only a small cut in the bumper.

Edited, this car actually has the new navi antenna on top of the roof, it must be post 06/06 car.

Seems to be cars from 2007/9, which are equipped with these visible pipes. At least the cars produced for the Swedish market.
