over christmas..

I spent a month there going from Joburg to Capetown. We drove all over the place, spent some time in Kruger, Joburg, Knysna, and Capetown. Even got to fly and spent a few days in Vic Falls. You have no idea how much I loved SA, really a nice place.

Fantastic! It's always great to hear of someone new discovering SA.
Get yourself a holiday home and an SLK in Cape Town for your golden years! It's perfect convertible weather. That's what I'm planning for!

Update expected?

Hi James,

Any idea when the update is expected? Is it still in 2003? [?]

I recently (May 2003) ordered a new C. I am expecting delivery end June 2003. If there is an update coming soon, I might just cancel the order.
Don't want a "new" old (pre-update) car! [xx(]

JG01, are you sure all you need>>>

to wait is 4 weeks for special order "C" or is it factory order or not? What option are you getting. I ordered mine last "Feb 03" and and it will be just arriving this Friday. After 16 weeks of waiting[:(][:)][;)] Waiting is always have a happy ending[:D]

On a budget here!

Afraid it's a stock standard C200 Kompressor Elegance with Termatronic climate control, removable tow bar, cell kit and sun roof[:(]

Definitely not what I need, but what I can afford!

I agree, live's too short, but I have leave some money in the budget for the bread and beer!

But someday, when I'm finished with my studies... [:D]

And your "C" isn't a basic you have a cell kit, tow bar and a sunroof, over here we need an extra power on passing or else you will be end up on the ditch, whenyou are getting on the freeway[:)][;)]

No update expected for SA in 2003

Hi,

Some info for South African MB fans.
I recently mailed DCSA asking them if there is going to be an update/face lift on the W203 in 2003/early 2004. Herewith their reply:

"Dear Sir,

There are no changes in the near future to the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. We are
currently looking at introducing a "Sports package" option to be introduced on
the C-Class Sedan later this year, but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Kind Regards

The dealership told me that there will be new colours available from August/September '03 (they could not tell me what they are) and that Aragonite Blue colour will no longer be available.

Attached is a photo of what my C200K is supposed to look like when I finally receive it (hopefully) 11/07/2003. I chose the Aragonite Blue colour, because it is very scarce in SA and since it will be discontinued in September, it will remain a rare sight.
