New 2007 C230 Sport Owner

Picked up this little gem yesterday.



The folks over in the W204 section say its a W203 (I believe them, it doesn't look like the pictures in their pic sticky thread).

In the W203 forums though all I see are S/C'd 4 cyls, and mine is most certainly a M272 V6.

Are there any threads around here that outline the differences, mainly so I can go do some research on maintenance?

Its calling for Service A within the next 12k miles, from which I gather is more or less just an oil change and fluid check type of service.

Anyways, nice to meet you all and I'll be asking a lot of dumb questions (hopefully not)! My DD for the last 6-7 years almost exclusively has been a modified to hell and back gen 2 SVT Lightning, so maintenance ... I

I'm not sure why I didn't pick one of these up sooner.

It's definitely a W203. The 204 came out in 08 as the C300. Your's is just like mine, except mine is Mars Red. And yes they are V6's.

I checked it out. In the door it says 10/06. Its a W203 for certain.

I got lucky on the M272 in the car too. Not even a days worth of MB's production sooner and I would have had the cam balance shaft problem most likely. Got stupid lucky on that, I hope. CEL came on last night, hopefully its just something silly like a gas cap seal or something.
