2005 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C230 Kompressor Rwd 4dr Sport Sedan (1.8L 4cyl S/C 6M)
I compared this car to the BMW 3 series and found it to be a better all around car. I almost bought the 2006 model with v6 motor, but wanted the supercharged 4L with better gas mileage. This car is truly a fun car to drive. I know its not MB top of the line, but my car came with the H/K sound system, NAV,Xenon lights,Tel-Aid phone,Powered driver seat,17" chrome wheels etc. etc.. It's nice to know that I get the same extra amenities that the bigger (more expensive) upper models get, but at a fraction of the cost.
The overall power for a 4 cyl is just amazing to me. The Nav and H/K sound system are a major plus for me.
The temp control knobs, a/c vents, and window buttons appear of very cheap quality. The cup holder, when popped out to make two holders, appear as cheap plastic as well. I feel as some point in the near future, I will have to replace these items due to the cheap quality.
