Hi, may I suggest adding your city and country to your profile or signature? It makes it easier for those local to you to help as prices, options, etc. vary with regions on these cars.

if it's any help, I have a '00 c230 sedan that has the same Kompressor engine and it's a bit rougher than most other Benz's but I personally think it suits "sporty" driving well because you have an almost ever-present whoosh of extra power from the Kompressor (supercharger) kicking in when you hammer the accelerator. Also, when driving casually and not kicking in the Komp, you can get very good gas mileage and the performance numbers are on par with the non-supercharged but larger engined versions. You didn't mention price did you?

You can get 300,000+ miles out of these engnes easily if you maintain it well and do all your scheduled service... well worth it and since these cars are pretty affordable right now they make a good buy considering the safety, quality and prestige (if that matters to you).
