Did you consider using your favorite search engine? I received 3,110,000 hits for 'Mercedes Benz Evolution' on Google. This link in particular seems to answer your questions: Mercedes-Benz C-Class Sports Coupe 'Evolution S'

Your welcome. Good luck on your search. I hope you find the car you really love.

Trust me, I tried searching Google, Yahoo, Dogpile etc etc long before posting on this website, but did not find a list options that camewith the Evolution package that was available on the 2002 or 2003 CL230 in Canada, (C230 in the U.S) The link you suggested was from 2006, and from the U.K. so doubt if it would apply to a 2002 sold in Canada. But hey, thanks for replying

I guess you had the year on the title when I replied, I missed that, the CLC only came very recently. Cannot help with the car if the info is not available from MBUSA web any more.

The CL name must be local as you say it would be called C-class in the US, that applies for Europe too.

Actually wis calls one 203 model a CL. Quite confusing when there are 215 and 216 body CL big brothers.

Hey Kimotim,... here ya go, eh,... Hoser!

My car had the optional EVOLUTION sports package which consists of 17″ light-alloy wheels, 225/45R-17 tires, a sport suspension with a lowered body, and a leather-wrapped sports steering wheel. Handling was terrific, thanks to those sticky Michelin Pilot Sport 17 inch radials, front and rear independent multi-link suspensions, rear-wheel-drive and a balanced front to rear weight distribution. I found the C230 to be stable and predictable with excellent balance and steering response although I thought the steering effort was a bit heavy. It’s not as softly sprung as the C240 sedan and some traditional Mercedes-Benz owners might find the ride a bit stiff. The car has a nice, tight turning circle of 10.8 metres (35.4 ft.) and 3.3 turns lock to lock. The standard four wheel disc brakes with anti-lock brakes were very powerful.

I found it in the middle of this article,... Canadian Driver's "Test Drive: 2002 Mercedes-Benz C230 Kompressor Sport Coupe"
CanadianDriver Mercedes-Benz Test Drive: 2002 Mercedes-Benz C230 Kompressor Sport Coupe

Yeah,... Canadian Driver's article says C230,... even though in Canada its called CL230,... even though the back of the car says C230,.... got it? If so you can explain it to me, eh!

That Evolution Package also include a grille full of bullet holes,... well, at least some does,.... maybe the Evolution Package varies by year,....

While we're talking about Canadian C230/CL230,..... I noticed most American C230 seems to have 2.3L engine with 192 hp,..... But it seems when it comes to the Canadian C230/CL230, some have 2.3L engine with 192hp and some have 1.8L engine , does anyone know how many horse power the 1.8L engine has? Both are Kompressor,.... And all Canadian C230/CL230 have the same C230 emblem on the back,.... so asside from popping open the hood, how can you tell if the car is 1.8L or 2.3L?
