Looking at one or the other.

A lease on a new C32 is $909+tax a month w/ 0 down. 53k$

I can get a 1999 30k mi w/ 100k warranty c43 for $32k, ~575 on a buy.

Is the new C32 that much better than a c43?

Where are u located, i want that C43 [:)]. Depends really, if it had xenons and all the options i would go with the C43. I just love the V8 sound, but the C32 is really much more advanced and handles a lot better. Depends on what u are looking for. I would never lease a car paying 909 a month, but thats just me.

I agree...there's something cool about that AMG V8 rumble. Its all about what you can afford. $900 on a lease? I don't know. 32K with 30k miles...thats a freakin bargain...get it and prepare to have a ball!!!

Go for the C43

Unless you want the latest thing the older cars are put together better IMHO. Probably not quite as fast or good handling. That's a good price. Where is it? I am also considering the same idea. I like my 98 C280 but its just way too slow.

1999 C43

Al,

I have a 1999 C43 with 25,000 miles. Are you interested? Obsidian Black/two-tone. Perfect condition drop me a line.

The W202 chassis just seems more solid. Both are great cars and you should be able to lease both. Obviously the C43 would be cheaper.

The C32 iss too light although the rack / pinion steering is an improvement. It lacks the traditional MB look.
Go for the 43, or better, the 55. Maybe agricultural alongside the 32, but much more fun!

C55

Hi Chris, yes it does have the same engine i think & i have been told that the C55 was a special order car from AMG. I dont have clear figures on its performance only to tell you it is very quick and the limiter has been removed!!,It tips the scales at approx 1500kg and is far quicker than my last car a M3 evo.

The C55 was a production run out of Mercedes alongside the CLK55, same engine as E55. The model was a commercial spin from the support cars on the F1 circuit. Since the demise of the 202, it is now dead but the CLK55 is still available.
I do not know how many models were made, (does anyone? pls let me know...) but the majority went to the States where it was more affordable
