C200K Search Experience. (With Pics).
Salam.

Saya org amatlah baru dalam forum ni. mencari ilmu dalam membeli c200k ni. nak tanya brader2 semua:

at the moment im looking to buy a c200k. there's one UK spec avantgarde, amg rims and brake caliper, amg exhaust and suspension, year 2002 reg 2008. full spec with sunroof.
tertarik namun masih lagi mencari sbb ada yg local spec tapi elegance, tapi tahum 2004.

antara UK spec, Jap spec dan local spec, yg mana adalah terbaik dari sudut 'value for money'? dan benarkah jap spec yg terbaik secara amnya?

Re: C200K Avantgarde AMG Spec
Salam manzek,

Best is to get local so that you can check with the local dealer on the history record.

Next best is to go for a Japaneses spec.

On the difference specification, let's wait for the response our C200K owner like Doc Roth, brother teranova, banang, zaferi, OKIdo. They should be able to help you on this.

Re: C200K Avantgarde AMG Spec
manzek,
If I were you, I would go for it. AMG UK spec... the problem might be undercarriage of the body which you have got to check. But with the bodykit and sport rim I personally think it good for money.

Re: C200K Avantgarde AMG Spec
Welcome to Mybenz Community

C Classs/W203 (2000 - 2007) variances:

Malaysia
1. Elegence
2. Avantgarde
3. Classic

Japan - no variances only 1 spec (no indication on both sides of fender)

UK - as Malaysia

in addition, there are C32 and C6x AMG specs.

standard differences (Malaysia & UK):
1. Elegence
- wood panel or woodlike trim and dashboard
- "elegence" at both sides fender
- 15" alloy wheel

2. avantgarde
- alumninium/carbon fibre trim and dashboard
- "avantgarde" tag at both sides fender
- 16" 5 spokes alloy wheel (difficult to see now, as most have changed the alloy wheel)

3. classic
- wood panel only on dashboard
- "classic" tag at both sides fender
- no alloy wheel
- no aluminium strip on all lining doors and bumpers (r/f), just plain lining

Japan spec compared to Malaysia and UK spec - bigger/square plate holder, no 'tag' just 1 spec "Japanese Spec", bigger radio (original radio couldn't get our local frequencies, need to change or install booster), full with electronic gadgets notably i.e.memory seat and elec adjustable steering etc)

further there are pre-2004 and post-2004 (face lifted). Variances and the differences between pre & post 2004, 2004face lifted will have:
- new engine (black top @ 1.8ltr) better and saver
- new dashboard and speedometer, nicer and better
- elegence - 16" allow wheel and avantgarde - 17" alloy wheel as standard
- new front grille and bumper
- new signal design (LED)
- sport version will come with paddle shift, staggered 17" allow wheel, different steering wheel and alum padles and nicer alloy wheel with notably "Merc Benz" brake caliper.

Personally i feel UK spec is better however it's all about condition of the car (most importantly) and personal preference. Previous history is equally important and there should be something for you to check.

Questions:
1. Is it original C Class AMG? C32 or C64?
2. How many previous owners, local and UK?
3. Check previous history, for AMG better have almost uptodate history, preferably at least 3 years back. As the car was registered in 2008 and presumably brought in in the same year, it is still considered new for the local onwer to "naturalize/acclimatize" the car in terms or maintenance and repairs and have all the information
4.reason to sell

Good luck bro and please share your experience hunting for one.

Re: C200K Avantgarde AMG Spec
whoa. thanks bro Rothman. how do i determine whether its C32 or C64? is it stated in the reg card (geran)? the previous owner is the owner of the Used Car dealer itself. one owner. and it has all the characters of an original avantgarde as listed above but its a pre 2004 facelifted. W111 engine.

and when you say "naturalize/acclimatize" the car, what are the things that needed to be changed/upgraded ensuring that the process of naturalization has taken place?

thanks again.

Hi Manzek,
Welcome to "MY BENZ".
Brder Rothman had given the details about w203 models.It's very clear...thks bro Rothman.
To me if u can get the car with full accessories like original bodykits, amg sportrim etc.and the price is not so much diffrnt compared to the market price base on year model....I think it is worth buy. Because those accessories are very expensive. But it depend on your taste. Wht type u prefer....to me all amg parts are good looking.
The most important is condition of the engine.....
Salam ...zoljazz.
