Took my fathers new purchase, a 2001 C200 Kompressor up to Heathrow T4 today and quite liked it. Down on power compared to my E280, especially when climbing steep hills, but on the flat surprisingly nifty. A couple of times I checked the speedo and noticed I'd crept up to 90:ban:
I liked the...
We have developed an intermittent fault with the fuel pump causing the engine to cut out. The AA discovered there was no power to the pump and after some playing around with the rear fuse box in the boot it came back to life. This morning my wife gave the fuse box a good thump to get the car...

C200K will be replaced (in late July/early August) with the new C250CGI

Just testing the water here first, really.
Having missed out on an E55 AMG on here last week, I really need to get my c200K sold on, to make way for the E55 that I now need more and more badly as each day passes.
Here's a very quick couple of snaps I took of her today, just to get the...
I just purchased a C CLASS C200K 1.8, unfortunately it’s developed a squeaky noise under the bonnet.
The noise only starts after doing a few miles from start, then when in park/idle, it continues to make the noise, but if you rev the engine over a certain rev, the noise turns...
All done and finished, MB Approved bodyshop did quite a good job, and what a difference the engine seems to be able to breathe a lot better with this set-up plus the sound has quietened down a bit but the Kleemann header and sport cat lets you know that its not stock.
I am really pleased with...
I'm in the middle of changing an engine on a C200 K (2007 model).
I know the C200k is slightly faster than the C180k am I right in thinking the gains are from the ECU / Kompressor?
Basically, what I would like to know is can I use the engine block from a C180k (2005 model) on my C200k (2007...

Luckily its under warranty so im going to try and get it repaired... also i hope they can look at my cruise control (although it might be the same problem)
I'm just about to buy a 2001 C200k estate.
It comes with the supercharged 2.0L M111 engine and is not the newer 1796cc supercharged variant.
I'm a bit confused as to which is the better engine as I understand the newer one is a Mitsubishi sourced one ?
Is there anything wrong with the...
I have just put down a deposit on C200k, second hand 2001 model. I love Mercedes and this will be my first dream car.
Unfortunately I am also new to this site and the more I read the more I am worried about completing the deal.
Has anyone got an early c200k that hasn't had problems?
I have my pride and joy for sale. Need an ML as family increasing by two!

Thanks for looking!
