Sorry for the stupid question but what does "Kompressor" mean ??

I take it this is some form of turbo ?

I have a 240 w202 ....ive noticed some cars have kompressor on the back and some dont ......does this mean they are underpowered in some way ??

Thanks.

No.

According to Parkers:

A normal c230 has 150bhp, top speed of 130mph, 0-60 in 10.4 and gets an average mpg of 31.9

A c230 kompressor has 193bhp, top speed of 143mph, 0-60 in 8.3 seconds and gets an average mpg of 34

So with the addition of the kompressor unit (and some engine re-inforcement!) you get 43bhp more, knock 2 seconds off the 0-60, add 13mph onto the top speed and get 3 MORE miles to the gallon!

Plus the kompressor makes a nice whining noise :)

The c230k is the fastest, most powerful and most fuel efficient of all the petrol w202s, except for the AMG tuned models.

Of course! Just swap the mods over and she'll be none the wiser :)

Not if you have the new M271 Engine, C230 Kompressor ,you have better fuel economy.
