Ok,<br>
<br>
I know that's a stupid post on a mercedes forum but I need some advice. I'm new to this forum and new to mercedes in general. I have a 99 323i and love that car, BUT, I have fallen in love with another car C240. Looking at the specs it looks like the 323i beats C240 in most categories. The body style of the C240 is what I really like. <br>
<br>
Here's my question. If I go through with buying a C240, can I get a car with the sport package, sunroof, and sound system with changer for under 35K?<br>
<br>
Any help would be appreciated.<br>
Thanks<br>

Maybe.

It seems to me you could get it for under $35K, not including any tax or license. Roughly, the car is 30, plus 700 destination, plus $3000 for sport pack, $1400 for sunroof pack and $500 for CD changer (if you mail order it from places like clair.com). That's around $35,600, it seems like dealers are dealing a little so you might be able to lower that somewhat to get right under $35,000.<br> <br> But, if you live in a place like California, you'd have to add about $3500 for tax and registration, in which case you'd blow well past $35K. If you live in Oregon, with no sales tax and low registration, you probably could do it.<br> <br> As a performance car or sports sedan, the 323i would beat the C240 in just about every category. I found that my C240 6 speed felt significantly slower than the 323i, and didn't handle as well. But, it does a lot of other things better, it rides better, is quieter, has a nicer interior and exterior, and generally has more features.
