Mohnish, what GTO means is that the new C is a whole new car, shares nothing besides the badges from the older car, and a few electronics, transmissions and sometimes engines. Other then that it is an all new car, with new design, loads of better packaging which is natural with every new generation, a lot of new technology etc etc. Compared to a facelift which is only a slight enhancement of the existing car using the same body / chasis / etc just to make it look fresh enough for the last 3 years of it's life in tough competetion.

Thanks, I realise I misunderstood ... I thought GTO was refering to the W203 facelift, however I realise he was referring to the W204.

Should have read the date of GTO's post.

Thanks again.
