I used to have a CLK 320 and feel the need for another one. Anyone any views as to which from a "performance" view is better - from both engine and chassis. I know the 320 only has limited scope for additional work both on tuning and it's a heavy lump, but what about the 230k?

My car has a overheating issue, the A/C doesn't seem that cold and the fan on the radiator does not come at all. The only way to keep it steady is to have the heater on full.
I have replaced the thermostat and still no joy.
I have checked all fuses and they are working fine.
I have a fault with my instrument cluster.
everything works fine apart from the lights (behind the speedo)that illuminate when the switch is turnt on.
i have checked all fuses... under bonnet.. drivers side and the boot and they are working/not blown.

Can anyone recommend a performance air filter that can fit onto a 2000 (X) 230K?
I am thinking more of a cone type, nice looking one rather than a replacement flat element type.

I have a very strange problem with my car. I ordered H&R Springs from Germany with 40mm drop all around specifically for W208 230K Coupe. The car literally became extremely low and front tires will hit fender and inner lining and the exhaust hits speed bumps. Its not drivable. Rear...

My CLK has a flat battery after being stood still for a few weeks. I can open the driver's door with the metal key insert OK by turning, but I cannot open the boot with the same key. I have tried pushing it in but it doesn't do anything.
Is it supposed to be able to turn in the boot...

Checked both handbooks and the s says 229.1 or...
I just test drive a clk 230k vert and to be honest was very disappointed. Are they meant to perform well? This one I had tested felt there was no go and also a delay when you put the throttle down.
Also when to test drive a 320 and the car was a lot more responsive and smooth
Any advice would...

Hi guys I have spent nearly all my time looking on eBay, auto trader etc trying to find either a 230k or a 320. My budget is around £2k I know this is not much but it's going just be a second car in the family. Ideally I love to have a convetible. I would like either a black or silver but must...
recently when I have been flooring it from stationary the car revs very nicely in 1st gear and keeps on going, but when i let go of the throttle the car stays in high rev for a second and then suddenly a heavy "pop" and it goes into second
it feels like a similar jolt as to when we...
