  1. I went today to order a 2018 C43 US spec and the dealer could not take the order. I have to wait for 2019 and was willing to do so until seeing MB dropped the diamond grill from the 2018. The 2019 grill kills most of the appeal of the 2018 frontal view. Bring it back or at least offer the option to only use that grill with the black optic package. Why do the designers mess with items that many car reviewers highlight as a strength of the looks of the car. I lost count of how many point to the 2018 grill and say how it makes the MB AMG distinctive.

    1. I hear a lot of what you just said, but the good news there are still a lot of 2018’s available. So instead of ordering, just try to find one in 2018 model year…
