There's really a lot of things you can do to increase the power of your car without losing a lot of money. I would not recommended this unless you know what you're doing. 1. Advance the time of your car by moving the distruibutor 2. Go buy yourself a Catalyst Converter from junkyard and hollow it out (by doing this your car will gain at least 10 hp) 3. Reduce the weights of your car by removing stuff that you don't necessary need (like your spare tire). These are some of the stuff that I could think of right now. Remember don't do it if you don't know what you are doing.

A small outfit in So Cal has a pulley kit for the MB V6 (C320, C240) that people claimed they got good results from, about 12HP in the midrange. Their website is http://shoshop.com/ and the man to talk to is Vadim. They sell the kit for about $500 US and with the favorable exchange rate, it's probably a bargain for you.

You can play with exhaust and intake but I don't believe you'll see much of an increase, maybe 2-3 HP. Supersprint makes a good exhaust for that car and maybe K&N filter. I would avoid a foam filter like ITG in that car because of the very shallow filter box can be blocked by really thick filters.

That's probably it in the best bang for the buck, after that comes supercharger kits from Kleemann that are far from what a C-class owner would call cheap.

Distributor? There is no distributor. Those went away years ago.

Check out a chip from Power Chips Group.

Go to your local MB dealer and ask them to carry out stage 3 enrichment on DAS. That will give you more power but be prepared for your fuel consumption to increase as well.

What exactly does that do? and about how much does it cost?
