man i just can't seem to stay away from benz's
even though i'm trying to get rid of my w124 till i can find a cleaner example..

my girlfriend just got her mom's 06 or 07 c230 kompressor with sport package
has about 50k miles
looks like the p.o was some enthusiast though

has amg wheels, amg exhaust tips, and i think a real amg exhaust.. the thing sounds like a freaking e46 m3 with tons of mods

just looking for common things i should watch out for and tips and what not

thanks guys :)

First of all, if it's a MY2006 or MY2007, it's not a C230 "Kompressor". The supercharged I4 was dropped in those years and replaced with the 2.5l version of the M272 V6 engine. If this one is a Kompressor, then it's a MY2005 or earlier. If you have the M272 V6, then you need to be concerned about the dreaded balance shaft failure. Also, you may have an early version of the 722.9 7GTRONIC transmission. Some of those can be problematic, too. Find out what you have, then we can help with potential things to look for. If you're unsure, post the VIN and we can look it up on EPC and tell you everything about it.
