Grr, why do people put things on adverts that aren't true?

Mercedes C230 Sport Kompressor Auto
S met black/green, full leather, 1 owner, alloys, air con, climate, CD multi changer, top spec, in C class £9995.

Havant Automobiles

Tel: (023) 92454823

Distance: 1 mile
Price: £9,995

Turns out that he meant aircon, not climate. Grr! Still a nice car though. Mileage is less that I expected it to be too, only 87k.

You're right. Anyone want to take a look at the car for me?

The only reason I know half that stuff about the car is because I had Whitefield look it all up for me ;)

I think that is the extra interior sensing features on the alarm.

Whats that then?

Electronic Parts Catalogue. The w202 disc contains the full spec of every w202 sold up to that date, using the VIN as an index. That way for example if you see a car with an option you want you can make a note of the chassis number, look up the option and get part numbers for all the wiring harnesses, fuses, everything. Quite smart really :)

EPC is a MB electronic parts cat.

It is a database of all the parts related to your car, its the exact thing you see when you go to MB to order bits for your car ;)

Cool!!

Is this something easily available to the public, or has it been acquired through a dealer?

Shude -
you mentioned that C230k had a power steering column adjust - I didn't think you could get it on a W202? I've got a leccy drivers seat, but manual steering column, and I didn't think it was an option in the brouchure? Don't tell me I'm missing a button!!:D
