I dare not say this on the DodgeMagnum site but this is what this vehicle should look like. Congratulations, I wish it was available in Canada as I would jump on it. :D

I love it! I was trying to talk the wife into the Magnum, just because of the added space and functionality. She was saying we don't need a stationwagon, 'but this is a really cool wagon' I told her.
I like the looks and the interior of the 300 better anyway. I could really go for one of these. Now Chrysler will probably make it available, right after mine gets here. Congrats.

Flexion - very nice.

Wish we could get the side markers on the american "C"s... but we all know it requires a different harness, cutting the sheet metal, yadda yadda yadda.

this is one SEXY wagon. Have you seen the Startech, ahem BRABUS treatment for it? That car has a lot of tuning potential.

thanks guys :) I noticed some differences between the rear of magnum and the euro wagon, for example the chrome parts in the rear bumper dont exist on the magnum and the "corners" of the rear bumper are also slightly different.
I really like this magnum&300c mix, the whole interior is very nice (will install silver dashkit soon) and the UConnect system is amazing!! I will post another pic of a black one in a few minutes.. stay tuned

SWEET, now if I can only get the idea of getting one of these out of my head. As I said they will probably decide to make it available about August, since mine is scheduled for delivery about June/July.

Flexion - great choice of vehicle.
Tell us, what made you choose the 300C?
Yes, I know, the HEMI, but Chrysler has such a low market share in Europe (1.7%) - what made you even look at one?
Do you think others there share your "vision".
Let me guess - lowest priced, high-powered E-Class Mercedes currently available? That, and room for your dogs? :p
Cheers!

:) aber das ist ein schoenes auto !.....wunderbar !.....nice to see a bit of Canada driving around all the way in Switzerland....i truly believe the 300C touring version would sell very well over here in North America.....it would outshine those other German avants and touring cars !.....enjoy your new ride...

@slk320: yes I've seen the pics of the startech edition ;) mine is an AWD, I guess I still have to wait until nice rims and stuff are available.

redman, I had a 300m before and it was a great car as well, I was very happy with it. every second car on our streets is an audi, and if I compare the audi with the 300 series, you get much more car for less money when you buy a 300c! uhm, the hemi... I'm sorry to say, mine doesnt have a hemi, although its labeled "c". here in europe the cars usualy have engines from 1.0l to 3.0l and the taxes (and gas prices aswell) are very high especially here in switzerland. if someone asks about the engine and I tell him itsa 3.5l they already say "wow that's crazy". I'm happy with the 3.5l it has enough power and a nice sound, and as you see its still a "c" here in europe, with lotsa extras from the hemi version (HID lights and so on).

btw, so far I've only seen two sedans driving on our highways, but already 3 or 4 touring wagons. I guess the touring wagon will sell better in our country, because station wagons are very popular here!

and here's the reason why I bought the "wagon" with its huge trunk and not the sedan: ;-)

What, no HEMI? I forgot someone mentioned a while ago that Euro versions were all C's whether they had a HEMI or not. It really makes for a bit of confusion when talking about or comparing models.

No offense to the Magnum folks, but that is one sweet looking wagon.

For this US trained observer :rolleyes: it is amazing how similar the US Hemi C and Euro Touring V6-C look the same. Headlights, foglights, chrome side mirrors, and chrome door handles are the same.

Now looking at your pictures, the only clue it is not a Hemi is the left rear exhaust hole on the bumper appears to be plugged. Otherwise I can't see any difference.
