Hello, all...

As you can see, I'm a new member here, and I would like to say a big "hi" to eveyone here, and to say I look forward to knowing some of you through this forum! :).

As I'm pretty much new to the world of Mercedes-Benz,( :oops: ) I would appreciate it if someone could explain to me the number system. For example, BMW has the 3 series, 5 series and the such, and the numbers after the series number is how powerful the engine is, i.e. 3i8-Series 3, 1.8.
The Mercedes system looks a little confusing, but hopefully, with your help, I'll come to grasps with it! :)

See you around on the forum!

P.S. I apologise for using BMW as an example-it's late, and therefore I can't quite think of a better example to use... :)

Welcome and have fun!

As with BMW, usually, but not always, the number references the engine size (C320 = 3.2 liters). Without a lot of detail, the C Class is the relative competitor to the BMW 3 Series, E Class to the 5 Series, and S Class to the 7 Series. MB has their AMG versions to go against the BMW M Series.
