superchargers and the MB 1999 Kompressor
My wife purchased new in 1999 a C230 four door Kompressor. She purchased a new lexus this year and I have the Kompressor. The problem....superchargers. At about 35,000 miles it went bonkers and was replaced under warranty. Now at 66,000 miles it is out again. Mercedees says $2,100 (estimated) to replace. Is this going to be a regular replacement every 30, 35 thousand miles? If so, what about using rebuilt supercharges from DirectAuto.com? Outside of this supercharger problem, it has been a good car. Any comments would be greatly appreciated.
