This is my 1st post. Just bought a Brilliant Silver '03 C 230 coupe. It's quickly become one of my favorites, together with my SC400 and CRX. I want a full service/shop manual for this car, but Mercedes, Helms, Books4Cars don't have one (except For the Haynes manual, which I have). Any sources anyone can suggest? Is the W203 pic on this site the correct one for my car? Why do some C230's have 'Kompressor' insignias and others not, even though they are all supercharged?
File under the heading 'New Dolt': Thought this car was quick and fast. Then discovered I had been driving it for the first two weeks in the 'Winter' transmission mode. Found the mode switch two days ago, and changed it to 'Standard' mode. The next time I drove it out, I almost ran it into my CRX, it was so much quicker. Based on what I've read on this blog, I can expect problems with this car. But I'm looking forward to them, it'll be fun to keep it maximized.
