w203 Renntech lowering kit

This is a Renntech lowering kit for a w203 (C230 sport), $1400 new, only asking $600 obo, I work at a Benz dealer and this came off of an advisors car, it has very low miles because after he got the kit he got new wheels but didn't do his homework, so he had really bad scrubbing issues. I have more pics if you want them.

I have gotten a few PMs about coupe fitment, I am checking on that tomorrow, I will post what I find. If anyone knows if the C230 sport 4 door has the same spring/shock part numbers as the coupe that would help too.

All of the 4-doors, it doesn't look like it will fit any coupes.

I'm very interested...but can you be more specific regarding the scrubbing problem that you mentioned. I'm also planning to buy new wheels and looks like a really need to do a whole lot of homework. Also, can you provide us your input regarding the warranty rule...will it void the warranty and the extended warranty that I purchased?

I will try to find out the exact wheel size he had, but I am sure it was rediculous. It may be that to go taller than stock 17" wheels with the lowering kit you will have to have your fenders rolled, which is not too expensive, and any body shop should have the tools to do it. We recently put 22" wheels on a new S550 with a lowering module and it had to have the fenders done, it was pretty slammed though.
Having the springs installed by a MB dealer should not void the warranty, also I was told it should fit a 2005 C240, how ever this kit was designed for the c230 sport chassis. I will check on all these things tomorrow at work.

Does not sound like it will void the warranty as long as it is installed by a MB dealer, but you may want to check with your dealer for more info on that, I was told that it will fit w203 4door chassis. Still don't know the rim sizes, you will have to see if you can find some folks who dropped their 203's and what wheels they put on them, like i said fender rolling is always a option.
