ever since my 190e broke down. i been looking at the c230 and the bmw 540. there both nice. i like the bmw because of the trunk size and its black interior. mercedes look really nice with the black interior but its hard to find. right now im leaning toward the bmw. wat are the specs on a 1997 c230

1996 c220 is an awesome car. It doesn't have wiring harness or head gasket problems and is the last year for the robust 722.4 transmission.

Stay away from 1997 models with the new electronic (problems) transmission unless you know it has been addressed.

1998 c230 should be an awesome ride too.

I have been thinking of picking up a 1996 c220 in the next year or so. If not, I'd pick a c230. They are supposed to be rock solid, dependable, and great MPG!
