bottom line: any car mr. x says is a good car is good and any car he says is bad is bad. you aren't allowed to argue or think any different than him. he is always right and his opinions should be shared by all of us.

^ no its just that you sound really dumb when you imply that your opinion is fact and and everyone else here should have the same exact views as you. excuse us for not liking a glorified toyota or a bmw 3 series, we all don't have to like the cars you do. if you want people to share in your love for a lexus maybe visit their forum.

my aunt has a lexus and my mom has a toyota avalon and they feel and look like the same car to me. and saying a bmw 3 series is WAY better than a C class is just silly but again its your opinion and you are entitled to it, just dont expect everyone to believe the exact same things as you do, especially on a MB forum.

Show me a publication that rates the 05 C230 at the top of any ratings and comparison list. Doesn't exist. And, it doesn't exist for a reason.

Have you ever even sat in an 05 3 series, let alone driven one or really looked at the build quality compared to the C class? I'm guessing not. And it isn't just the 3 series that is better then the C230....

There is nothing to believe or there is no opinion. Reliability, build quality, resale value and fit and finish are all measurable qualities of a car. All 4 items the 3 tops the C on.

I never even suggested a Lexus, so I'm not sure why you are jumping on that one?

I got a 2005 C230K Sport and so far very good compared to other cars I have owned Acura/Hondas. I do favor the interior of the 2005 interior trim as opposed to the 2007 C230 I drove for a few weeks while my car was in service. Gas wise the 6 is a bit more thirsty and gas mileage was not near what I got or get in the 05 Kompressor Sport. For a 4 banger/Supercharged it has good pick up and go which is perfect for dailey commute. If you did own a C230 and you had problmes you can't base your issues on what could or happen to another persons car. Every car has faults. Here's an interesting bit of reading: http://www.google.com/url?sa=U&start...jRaZpOQ-iSdkwg

So I see your in another thread now calling CLK's and ML's crap also, Mr. rocking a 1990 Benz... You have shared your knowledge with all of us and we are so very grateful for it... If you are full of so much knowledge about what cars are worth having and so forth, why would you hang on to a car that even a minor repair might total out?? You do realize about 4 hours of labor alone would total out that glorified 1990 300SE??? I'll give you my thoughts like you have given others yours. Your car is not worth repairing, so why the hell would you keep it?? Seems like you would be throwing your money in the trash... Not to mention the embarrassment you would be saving yourself being seen in that thing you call a nice car.. PS: I love your rims..

If you think CLK's and First generation ML's are anything more then junk, then the hood star is really blinding your vision! The ML is a cheap American made Chrysler (look at the door tag, made by Chrysler in Alabama under license from MB). The CLK's are simply an over-styled 2 door C class. MB is dropping the CLK and going back to E class 2 door for a reason.

Do you have people coming up to you and asking to buy your car outright on the spot? I don't think so. I get nothing but comments and offers to buy my car wherever I go, thank you. It was one of the best cars Mercedes ever made, and if you don't know that, then you shouldn't be on this form. I would be quite embarrassed to be seen in a rich man's Chrysler, such as your C230.

First off, why did you not answer my question about why your car wouldn't even be worth fixing because of its value??? All of the above cars are worth more than yours and look tons better you know... Yes, I agree with you, your car does not look that bad... If it was sitting in a trailor park.. Getting compliments from people that would want that thing are probably not compliments that I would want to be hearing.... People only give you offers on the spot because they probably have enough money on them at any given time to purchase your car.. Lastly, mine doesn't have a hood star just for your future references...

Why? Because, due to the high build quality, it broke off?
