Make sure it is not one of the engines with the balance shaft problem. A VIN check will tell you that. I love my 07. Best car I've ever owned.

Yeah I asked someone to check, sadly it is one of the possible infected with the balance shaft defect. It's going for a great price though, but I don't think that will justify the repair cost. Do you know the status of the class action lawsuit?

I might go with a 320 or a 2005 Kompressor. The W203 might be my first car, since my dad and I have talked about what to do when I start driving and he is saying that we'll get the car soon hopefully, since my dad needs a new car as well, but when the time comes for me to start driving, it will be my car. How long have you had your 07? Luckily it seems to only affect the 06 models with the M271.

I've had mine since 2/22/12. Since mine wasn't one of the affected engines I haven't kept up with the status of the law suit.
