Just ordered a C180 Saloon AMG Sport Plus in white with Panoramic roof :)

New to Mercs, so confused by the "W" designations...

Also, wanted to ask what everyone's preference was regarding debadging, apparantly mine will have C180 CGI badges. Aybody here go for the debadge option? And what does the CGI stand for?

Thanks!

Yes, as seen in the forum index. Lots of wxxx forums, being new to Mercedes, it's a bit confusing.

I guess it is like the BMW system where the outgoing 318 for example was known as the E90 internally.

Thanks.
