This information can change before the vehicle launch as the 2012 E-Class has not yet begun production.
I hope you got them when you could! Five of the designo colors for the E-Class Coupe, Cabriolet, sedan and wagon have been discontinued as of now.
The Mercedes-Benz designo program gives Mercedes-Benz owners the opportunity to choose interior and exterior colors that are quite special! For 2011 the E-Class sedan and wagon have been given a wide selection of paint and leather choices as well as a few recommended designo editions. These vehicles will be built between April and June of this year. If you are looking for something special…now is the time to order!

3 designo Trims:
All of these finishes can be mixed and matched to create a Mercedes-Benz exclusive to you. Mercedes-Benz has also created 5 recommended designo Editions if you would like a starting point.

My 2011 E350 and I took a roadtrip to Illinois this weekend. It was an extremely comfortable ride and I was very impressed with the fuel economy. Officially rated at 24 miles per gallon on the highway, my E-Class far exceeded that!
This is my trip odometer on the way up (sorry for the blur): 28.0 MPG @ average speed of 68 for 588 miles.and this is on the way home:The final total was 1456 miles at 26.1 MPG! That includes 1300 miles of highway and 156 miles of in town driving. I got close to 500 miles on a single tank before the low fuel indicator lamp was illuminated. I also experienced the Attention Assist notification for the first time. I highly recommend the E-Class for all of you long distance drivers!
Mercedes-Benz just sent us a new accessory to try out – the Convenience Box for the 2011 E-Class. I installed this one myself in a 2011 E350 with split folding rear seats. This would do a great job of containing groceries or other bags so they don’t roll around in the cavernous trunk when driving! Ask you local parts department to order one for you! Part number is 212-680-00-10-9051. MSRP is $400.
“Drive quality also is a strength, with plenty of refined power on tap, while the ride cushions most of the road harshness without taking away from the car’s handling prowess.”
“Just a night in this car reminds me again why the E-class is among my favorite cars. It’s the right size, for one, and it’s a car that is just begging for some long stints on the road. It’s extremely comfortable, with great seats, a rocking sound system and enough horsepower under the hood to keep you endlessly entertained.”

MBUSA brought us a very special wrapped E-Class today for a training session on some of our safety systems over the years. There is hardly enough room on the vehicle to list all of the underlying safety features that Mercedes has developed and implemented to keep owners from having an accident or being harmed if one should occur! It was a great new way to see the E-Class!
The first 2011 E350 BlueTECs arrived at Atlanta Classic Cars yesterday. 2 were ordered and are already home with their new owners but we still have one for sale! It is Iridium Silver with the Grey/Black interior, Premium 1 Package and Sport Package. This is the first time we have been able to order a Sport Package for the diesel! Also, the AdBlue fluid has been added to make it an even cleaner burning diesel. Both the luxury and sport models ride on 17″ runflat tires.
I went for a long test drive this morning and the car is stunning. The ride is smooth and quiet with just a tiny bit of diesel rumble. It is powerful! You can feel the engine wanting to go fast!
Please come in for a test drive soon!
Here are some of the changes that are coming to the 2011 models.
