Cs sold in Germany about 1 yr before export to the US

I've followed C-talk on various nets and there's no big issues. The 320's have the best performance and at little if any more fuel cost than the 240s, if that's of interest.

If purchasing would you recommend buying a 2001?
What are the known problems?

So other than the bi xeons the car is essentially the same?

I would rather buy a year older and upgrade the headlights than pay the premium for having a current year.

I'm froogle, "cheap", what can i say.

I think only the cruise control stick changed

I like the older one better, also I don't know about 'climatronic' equiped cars, but the '03 I saw does not have the air vent in the middle of the upper dash, nor the cold air mixer vent in the middle air vent. Really minor stuff actually. Besides if the early version had any issues I am sure they have been taken care of by now. Also you get like 2% apr on starmarked C's. Our's is an 02 we bought new a little bit more than a year ago, and have nothing to complain about, I couldn't be happier with it. We did get the BAS/ESP thing, but that was fixed with a new wiring harness, had an issue with the tilting mirror- fixed also ,and haven't had an issue with the blinkers. I think it is a best buy for the money.
