Advice needed on purchase of C Series - Help!

Hi everyone

Sorry if this has been posted in the wrong place. First post here but hoping i'll be a card carrying member of your community soon!

Anyway, I'm torn between two cars that are exactly the same price. Both Mercedes C Class 1.8 Petrol Automatic Kompressor Avantgarde SE 4dr Saloon.

The difference is as follows:

Option A - 2007, 105,000 miles
Option B - 2005, 54,000 miles

Both are due MOTs in August this year and both have service history.

It's a question im sure youre all familiar with - age vs milage. Can anybody advise on any questions I can ask the sellers to help me decide?

Many thanks!

C180, C200 and C230 all have the 1.8 kompressor engine. What's the model badge on them, eg. is one a C180 and one a C230? The power rating changes between the model badging, the C230 has a bigger supercharger, the other two different boosts. They each perform quite differently when driving all out, C230 has great top end power, C200 is very strong midrange and they all perform well at low engine speed.

So if there is any badge difference between them that is definitely a factor.

driving a fast car should feel like falling off a building.
