Finally seen a video of the new colour multifunction display

I've been wondering what this looks like - I think they've done a good job.

Pretty sure it was MY14 - they changed it a few months after I got mine, which was a late MY13.

My 2013 Dashboard

I must be missing something! My 2013 dashboard doesn't look much different than this one. A green "C", and a highlighted symbol showing 8 cylinders activated.
Additionally, when I activate cruise control, all the number increment bars (above the set speed) on the speedometer turn red.

Is any of that unusual?

Wife has a 2012 C300 4Matic with the new center display. Was a bit disappointed that my 2013 SLK has the old style.

I'm trying to pretend I don't care that my 2013 has the black and white display. Otherwise, I get model upgrade anxiety every year!

Mines arrived at the dealership so had a sneaky look before Friday collection. Colour screen looks very smart. The wait is killing me!
