2005 Mercedes Benz C230 Kompressor - 4500 obo

You're looking at a 1-owner, daily driven car in a beautiful Orion Blue Metallic color on Ash leather interior. 95% highway miles, and drives as like a car that's been treated well. There are some cosmetic flaws as to be expected of a car with wear and tear, but the paint and leather are in good condition.

241,xxx miles
6 CD Changer
Aux Input
Recent Valve cover gasket and Spark Plugs change

4500 obo - there's wiggle room. Thanks for looking!

Can't tell from the pictures - does it have the Panoramic Sunroof? If so, has it broken yet? Also is there a phone kit in the car? Looks like stock head unit without nav, correct? Interior came in two colors - light tan and light grey. Description sounds like light grey, pictures look like light tan - probably the lighting...

I had a 2002 C230K which I _loved_ but got rid of it at end of extended warranty because the damn $2000+ to repair sunroof was acting like it might fail for the second time...

FWIW these cars are a blast and the way the back seat bottom folds up and seat back folds flat you can fit a huge amount of cargo in it. Also, same wheel base as sedan so back seat passengers actually have decent leg room.

No Panoramic sunroof so nothing to worry about there! And I believe there is a phone kit, the stock headunit (no nav, correct) seems to have phone kit but there is no bluetooth or anything of that sort. I believe this is the light grey, it is certainly not tan. And yes it's a fun car, however it's mostly been highway driven - 120 mile round trip commute a day and feels tight as a result of that.

Thanks for looking!

If it has a phone kit, there will be a cradle in the center console. The cradle can be fitted with a bluetooth puck (I think). If nothing in center console then it can be added but it is not cheap to do so.

I have no idea if the miles on this car are a concern. I liked my car when I had it and had it not been for the trouble-prone sunroof I probably would have kept it.

In that case, no phone kit.

As I mentioned, since the car's been basically all highway miles, the engine feels great. I'm actually very pleasantly surprised at the durability and reliability of the car, I've heard that it's generally very mixed but I ended up with one of the good ones.

Now, that's not to say that it's going to last another 250k without some basic maintenance items, but it'll do the new owner well. Only reason we're getting rid of it is because we've had it since new and it's time for a change. Got an eye on the CLA...
