    The short answer, is No....

    Both Carlsson - Mercedes-Benz Tuning - Exklusive Designs und Quality and BRABUS make performance kits for the M111 (or used to, anyway), but these are quite expensive and difficult to justify on a C-Class, let alone an 18-years old one.

    Later C-Class cars (W203 2003-2008 and W204 2008-2012) will have the M271 engine which has the timing gear issue (see previous post) so I wouldn't recommend that either...

    Tuning kits for the M111 and M271 were never very common, even in their heyday. The main issue is that these engines are difficult to tune without replacing significant amount of hardware, which makes it uneconomic.

    K&N filters and a free-flow exhaust are cheap and cheerful upgrades that will give the car a nice throaty sound, but wouldn't do much in terms of actual power increase.

    I had one of those. Best you can do is get it remapped and change the air filters. Gets you about an extra 20hp.
    Anything else is uneconomic.

    Stick an AMG badge on the back as that would be good for at least an extra 50bhp;)
