    Well I bought my wife a car today, and not wanting to miss out myself, decided to upgrade mine too!

    Next weekend shall arrive:

    1 x 1999 C230 Kompressor Sport in Azurite Metallic Blue!

    Still a manual with 41,000 miles

    Main spec differences over my C200 include:

    4 x Electric Windows

    Electric Seats (not sure if were heated - where would buttons have been?)

    Rain sensitive Wiper

    Xenons headlamps

    Folding Rear Seats

    and it goes a little bit quicker !!!!!

    Can anyone tell me if I this has ESP as well as ASR or not??

    The interior is mostly the same with the extra buttons, matt finish heater control knobs and the later steering wheel (feels much nicer).

    Pics when I get it!

    I guess I'll have to change my Username now!

    Graham, I had a C250TD sport auto which was a facelift model in October 1998 so should be the same as yours. It had ASR but not ESP (I think).

    I always wanted the C class kompressor but they seemed a bit rare. Woud like your opinion on the manual transmission though! Before my current CLK430 I had a C240 Sport with auto and before that a CLK230K with 5 speed manual but could never get on with it especially with the foot 'hand' thing.

    Personally, If I went for a C class today I think I would opt for the later spec C class and get the tip gearbox and have the best of both worlds. I think you can get a tip on a 1999 V plate.

    Anyway, the C230K is the top C class with the C280 IMO so hope it works out OK  <img src="" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'> A freind at work had one and loved it!!
