Hey, my name is Joel and I have a silver 2002 C230K hatchback with a six-speed manual. The car was GIVEN to my wife and I by her parents as a wedding gift. I love this car!!! The body has 155k miles on it, the motor, around 70k miles. My father in law had to put a new engine in it. It has cloth interior, manual seats, and definitely throws people for a loop when they see it (thinking that it'd have leather, nav, and a bunch of luxury options). I only drive it a few days a month since I am a police officer and have a take-home car. I also ride my motorcycle a lot.

I do have a question regarding the power of the engine... It was running really strong, and had a lot of pep in it, and then all of the sudden it got sluggish. It kinda feels like it's not making boost properly, has a boost or a vacuum leak, or something. Anyone else had this issue? I have built several force-fed Mustangs, so I'm familiar with forced induction, just not familiar with a European vehicle.
