Process of buying!

Hi, new here to the forum.
I have always loved the styling of the W203 Mercedes and I finally found one that met my criteria and I am currently in the process of buying it. Its a 2003 C200 Kompressor Avantgarde that I will hopefully pick up at the end of this month. The car has a few things I am not sure of, first of all its a one owner and it only has 103,000KM and it's in brilliant condition interior and exterior. The problem is a coldstart, before I went to the dealership it had stood for 3 days but upon start up it was surging the revs between 500-1000rpm until I gave it some gas but another problem is a hissing noise coming from the engine when cold. When I took it out for a test drive it was fine and shifted smoothly. The cosmetic problems start at the Bose stereo which sounds like a ringing noise coming from the center speaker and the cradle in the armrest which I am sure is supposed to hold a phone but has nothing. What could I do about the problems. The dealer is servicing but that's it. Could I source the missing phone or just get rid of it? Thanks.

You might also try asking your questions on the dedicated forum for the w203 C Class where the respondents might have more experience with this model. Good Luck.

When out on the road, it's always best to watch out for Pot holes, Sink holes, and those other Holes!

You can't get us confused. I'm also "Nice", but NYYYCE is NEVER "Easy"!
