Looking for advice on buying C180K/C220K
Dear Experts,

I am currently on lookout for a C180K/C200K..I have viewed 2 cars @ dealers, one with the silver-top and the other black-top engine (facelifted). I have heard lots bout the silver-top and black-top engine (facelifted). Just wondering what are the key differences?

The silver-top is priced @ RM129k (yr 03/08, mileage 50k), while the black-top is priced @ RM133k (yr 03/07, mileage 60k), both Japan spec with non-leather seats. Is this reasonable?

Any other areas that I shld look out for when on my search?

A million thanks to all in advance..hope to hear frm some of the experts soon =)

Re: Looking for advice on buying C180K/C220K
For you further understanding, C180K, C200K and C230K are the same capacity engine but just different horse power.

If the W203 is a 2003 model, most likely is the newer engine M271 .. I'm not sure about silver top but myself are driving a C200K blacktop... the previous engine are red top if not mistaken ..

If you want to know more, here's quite a informative site on C-Class and the engine http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercedes-Benz_C-Class#W203_.282000.E2.80.932007.29

I believe the price of W203 for recon has dropped slightly, you may want to scout around and see if you could get a better deal. I've seen many unregistered around with nice leather interior which is in the range RM140K.

Happy hunting !

Hehehe ... I bought the car with after market AMG .. not original and it's not c32 AMG .. it's a C63 AMG rear bumper .. that's why already has the double exhaust hole for quad tail pipe ...
