Hi bulaboy,
I am from Sydney as well. I will get my A250 Sport delivered around the beginning of April. Just can't wait to see my Cirrus white little Merc.

By the way, in oz, there is no A250 AMG Sport. The one we got is actuallythe A250 Sport engineered by AMG. Thanks.

You are having the same car as me, topic. What options did you order, if any? I went a bit overboard, but I have waited a long time for this new car. It is great that we can correspond all over the world. Welcome to you both.

I've ordered a cirrus white A250 Sport + AMG exclusive pack. The pack basically gives you all the nice touch in the cabin like leathers, electronic seats, memorys, rear aircon vents. Wished to get the drive kit plus but looks like it is still not available in Australia.

Hi G11, I have ordered the Amg Exclusive pack too, it looks fabulous. Have you had chance to test the car? It wasn't available here for a test drive, so hope I've ordered the right car for me. The style is really something and the Cirrus White! I am also having the Comand online! I should have mine in about 7 weeks. The forum has really helped with the wait!

I think the standard AMG rims are quite nice however it will be popular so if you ar after somthing unique then have a look on Brabus A250 , these rims are awesome .
I am going to put some racing strip on it ( similar to the A45 limited edition :D)Edited by: Dcs1990

Have any of you Aussies had a test drive? What did you think of 'our' little Cirrus White Merc? Fabulous looking car for me, especially in the white, with red and black touches!

Another one from Sydney here


Placed my order for a Cirrus White A250 about a week ago. Expecting it around August, which whilst is a long wait, suits me fine as that's when the lease on my Golf finishes.


For the benefit of our UK friends, I'll list what options are included as standard for the Australian A250s as opposed to the UK Engineered.


As mentioned, we currently only have the A250 Engineered by AMG models. The following options (as listed by the MB UK site) are included as standard for our A250s:
<ul>[*]Light & Sight Package[*]Mirror Package[*]Storage Package[*]Active Park Assist with Parktronic[*]Reversing camera[*]4-way lumbar support[*]Panoramic sliding sunroof[*]Rear armrest with twin cup holder[*]Airbags - sidebags in rear[*]Audio 20[*]Pre-Safe[/list]As for available options (apart from Becker and paint), for the A250, there's three packages:

<ul>[*]COMMAND which includes COMMAND Online, Harmon Kardon and Digital Radio[*]AMG Exclusive which is pretty much UK AMG Exclusive package with Memory Package and Luxury A/C[*]Driver's assistance which includes Distronic Plus and Lane Tracking Package[/list]

Yes, I've gone through a test drive last Saturday. Quite impressed by the car actually.

Interior is nice, everything is soft touch with quality. Ambient lights give you nice and warm feeling.

Exterior is sharp, Bi-Xenon and DRL are fancy. Reverse camera are clear and helpful.

The ride is not too firm andthe steering is really quick and accurate. I feel confident and safe even this is the first time I drive it.

The E, S drive modereally has some differences. In E mode, everything is quiet and smooth, you won'thear a lotnoise in the cabin. I think the mode is best suit for some weekend crusing or so. However, thingschange when you put the car in S mode. Floor the paddle and the torque comes straightaway, pressing you into the seatin no time. Also, when in S mode, the car will always try to keep certain rev level so that youcould get the torque as soon as you kick down. When cornering, the car will still try to keep the rev thus gives you some really nice exhaust note in the middle of the corner. After all, I feel the caris totally 2 different cars in those 2 modes. Quite enjoying driving in S mode.

By the way,myone wasorderedat theend of Nov last year. Cheers.

I have only been able to sit in it at the dealers, but have had test drives in other models. Still, over the half-way mark of the wait now. The interior is great and with the addition of a sunroof and ILS so is the exterior. May be able to test drive it soon? But too late as I have ordered it now!

You have a slightly different make-up of standard spec and options to us. The price is about £40, 000 so, not a lot of difference really.

Yes, based on current exchange rates, my white Engineered with the Command and AMG Exclusive packages is costing about£40,700.</span>
</span>
<div style="text-align: left;">Purely looking at the numbers, the price does seem high compared to UK OTR prices, especially considering UK reviews are already stating the Engineered is pricey. But I'm guessing once all "options" are added in, there's not much difference?

I've done 3000 kms, so 1864 miles.

I'm doing around 9 litres per 100 kms or 31 mpg....I do around 80 minutes driving per week day for work.
