Exclamation PLEASE HELP!! I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO?!

i am in the market for a C class. according to mbusa.com in the 16 year model overview, the 2005 C230 kompressors have a better acceleration time (0-60) than the newer 2007 C230's. does anyone know if this is true?

if these are both true, what advantages are there to buying a new one? other than a cooler looking key, haha

PLEASE HELP ME! what do you think all around about which i should buy?

PLEASE PLEASE LEAVE A REPLY

OK you have to decide if a miniscule .5 -1.0 second acceleration time is REALLY important to you, than you'll have to search high and low for that 2005.

I don't think you can go wrong with a CPO 2005 or equivalent.
But if the 2007/2008 trips your trigger than go for it.
MB is total driving experience.
If you still want super acceleration than take it to a speed shop and they
can really "hook you up".
Fast Chips, Electronics, Fuel Pumps, Tires etc

In the end; it is up to YOU and only you to decide what feels good
behind the wheel. Never minding what a magazine editor says....

Why the heck are you looking at an entry level C230 when you already have an S500 and brand new CLS?

Get the 2005 C230 Kompressor

This is a fun car and will save you a ton over a new one.

Alot of people actually prefer that body style over the new one.

Do not buy a new one-always buy 2 years old or older and let someone else take the hit of depreciation.
