So I've been debating for the longest time which one is better. The 2.3L 2002 C230 Kompressor SC or the 1.8L 2003 C230 Kompressor SC. The only thing I know is that it sounds different. (2002 sounds cooler imo). Other than that I figured because 2002 has 2.3L there's more potential with it. Any opinions? Input?

worth the gas milage

i have an 03 and just to let you know, i get over 40 mpg on the highway with it. i have never put premium gas in the tank, i simply keep it free from carbon buildup by using a Luca's treatment every couple months. it is the smoothest ride i've ever driven, and for the price i definitely recommend it. since the 02 has a bigger engine, i would image it would get less mpg. for me, it's worth the hp sacrifice.
