Good Price for c230K

Hey guys, new to this forum! So I'm looking at an 04' Acura TL for $30K OTD or an 05' c230K for $29K OTD. My cousin works for the Mercedes dealership, and they have the car listed for $35,400. It has 5,600 miles on it. You guys think its a good deal or go with the Acura? Thanks in advace!!

I'd go with the Benz, especially if it's a 6spd.

go with the TL, car looks badass , has lots of power....and there are not so many on the road , like c classes......

and the acura is more reliable than the MB

we all love mercedes, but we're also honest...well most of us[:p]

If it jams, force it. If it breaks, it needed replacing anyway.

Well I've been in a C230 Kompressor and if it has the manual then it is a truly fun car. I really do like the C230, great engine for the C-Class.

RE: Good Price for c230K

I personally would take the C-class over the Acura. I bought my wife the C230 Sedan Sport, Auto and we also test drove the Acura. The Acura was great, no doubt, but it was front wheel drive and I cant stand torque steer, even though it was light. Her C-class with the Sport suspension is so much fun to drive and handles really well. Its actually more fun in the corners and around the bends that my E500. Its just hard to beat German cars if you are a true driving enthusiast. Acura has a lot to offer and most definitely a better buy for the money, but until they make them rear drivers, it has a different appeal.
