I was a c36 owner for the last few years, I sold the car a while ago and I miss it.
I found a 1999 c43 black with 117k miles on it at a local car dealer for 9900$
I need some advise pros and cons
And what is the going rate on these cars, and the I read the tranny goes bad on the c43c

Some reading for you here

and here

That being said, like any 17+ yo MB, you need to do your due diligence on the history on this w202 you are looking, including a review of the electrical harnesses, vacuum lines, electrical, & ignition. Scan and look for and check for all codes. Perhaps the owner has an indie or MB service record you can review.

The C43 is amazing. The engine has so much more torque and power than your old car, you'll have a smile from ear to ear. My brother (and shop partner) has had one for 12 years and it has given him no problems, except for an ABS light issue. If the example you found is very clean, the price isn't crazy.
