Smile New Member C230 Kompressor


Just stopping by to introduce myself. I have been looking around on this site for a little while now and already got tons of help.

After totaling my Accord I was in need of a new car....and since the doctor told me that because of my size (6'-2" - 215lb) German cars are safer than Japanese i was looking at BMW and MB. I grew up in Europe and always had a soft sport for MB and BMW and Audi, reliability was always questionable but i was to the point where i did not care. I do most of the work myself anyways and parts are not that much more expensive. From all the reviews that i was reading about MB, Audi and BMW, MB seemed like a more reliable vehicle, especially the 2005 C230.

So i found myslelf a 2005 C230 Kompressor Sedan with 6-speed manual a few weeks back. Did some research on this site. I did find oil in the cam sensor harness but had MB of Lancaster fix it for free.

Also, my Alternator was starting to go so i replaced it last night (PITA!!). Had to take power steering pump out just to be able to get the alternator out. Overall took me about 4 hours.

Anyway, I am not much of a forum troll, I just look for the info, try to help out where i can and use Search function a lot.

I am looking forward to being a member on this site.

Here is a picture of C230 and what was left of my Honda:
