i drive a c-180 w202, i know it will never be fast, however wat are some simple (relatively cheap) mods to make the car go a bit quicker off the line cause thats where i feel the car is sluggish.
would and exhaust and k&n panel filter help?? a friend thinks fitting a high flow cat and 2.25 inch exhaust with a panel filter would make a big difference.
any help would be great

Filters (oil, air & fuel), plugs & exhaust are usually the first place to start. I wouldn't spend more on the car than that because you could just trade it in for a larger engined W202 for that kind of money. If you are really[/b] adamant on keeping the car, i would advise youto look into a light pressure turbo or a supercharger in the futureas well (but that gets expensive).

Also get your car dyno'd, it's a great way of smoothing out the little imperfections in the powerband.

Good luck
