Hi Guys. To introduce myself, my name is Dean, I am from Durban South Africa. I have owned a couple of Mercs over the years.
1. 2001 C230K with 2.3 litre cast iron motor 4 cylinder and supercharger 147kw power 5 speed automatic gearbox.
it gave so much trouble that they took it back within 3 months an repaced it with a :
2. 2002 C230K with 1.8 litre Aluminium motor 4 cylinder and supercharger 141kw power 5 speed automatic gearbox.
after using this beautiful car for 8 years, I traded it in for a used
3. C204 C280 sedan 7 speed gearbox.
used this as an interim car until trading it in for my baby:
4. A C204 C300 sedan with 3 litre V6 7 speed automatic with traction control, tiptronic, and 3 driving modes. economy, sport, and manual.
It has an AMG conversion in terms of sports seats, black interior roof, sports pedals. It has automatic intelligent lighting fitted (cannot switch it off). Looks round corners and stuff and automatically raises the lights and turns on brights at over 110km/h.
The car has also been uprated to have the agility suspension system installed as well as the correct AMG wheels and tyres 245/40/17 on back and 225/45/17 on front.
The car also has a sun roof.
My dream car and very happy with lots performance and good handling.
