Picked up a E320 today (non-4Matic) that has a couple features I just don't recall being in my former E320 (4Matic) (bought new in '02). This one has Parktronic, & instrument cluster illumination, & trip reset buttons that I just don't recall being in my old E320. Were there mid-year changes in '02? Or were these features there all along & I'm just having a senior moment? Thanks.

How did you see what speed you were driving if you didn't have instrument cluster illumination when driving at night?

Sunroof is standard on US models as far as I know and I have never seen W210 with metallic paint.
It surprised me that most of the World had option of ski door, but not USA.

did you remember how much the cost of the options are ????

I wanna know the option cost for PARKTRONIC and ventilation seat:rolleyes:
"If you have to ask >>> you CAN'T afford it" :D
What prices from 10 years ago would mean today?
Parktronic is outdated technology already as even Nissan has a system that will automatically stop the car when it sense obstacle behind. I bought rear view camera with 10" mirror screen for about $100 and still take my time to install on my flatbed truck.
I think MM has vented seat. From what I remember not highly efficient and not very reliable. With good AC in W210 I never sweat inside the car, so it would be a gadget for me. I was interested in dynamic seats for a while, but the very rare option was disintegrated on cars I could see.

Navi, integrated cell phone, rear passenger air bags, and voice command come to mind, I'm sure there were others...including option packages..
