Hey all. Im new to the whole 202 thing. Im buying (I hope so) a 94 C280. Black with black leather. It has 126,000. Are there any problems (if any) I should know about? How has your C been treating you. A question. Can I buy factory Xenon blubs for it? I can probably go to an Auto Parts store and get those really blue tacky looking ones, but I dont want them. Does Mercedes have factory Xenons. Would I have to change my lights to a newer model one like a 2000? Did they even come with it?

Hope I get it!

You would need to change to the 1997 or 1998 and later headlights to benefit the full potential of HIDs. These HIDs has projectors which makes the cutoff real nice.

They can be great cars or moneypits, if you don't do your homework.

I'd have it inspected before you buy. Looking for wiring harness and headgasket failures. Do a search.

Other than those problems they are awesome cars. Mine just hit 90k and is tight as it was 45k ago.
