Need advice - Which W202 i should choose?
Dear All sifu and bro, i'm newbie to Mybenz and doing survey to own my very first Benz. W202 is one of the choice in my survey list after W210.

The following are my style of driving and usage:

1. myself and my wife will be in this car for daily route (KL). So, reasonable regular maintenance cost is the primary criteria of selection.

2. Most of the time I drive steady and constantly but sometime if I drive alone, i will enjoy the speed of the machine and the great of handling.

3. I was Japanese car user along the way since i own driving license. This will be my very first Germany car. Frankly speaking, my wife and my family members not too support i switch to Germany car because they have been hear a lot of "unreliable" negative gossip regarding the sky high maintenance cost and endless problematic of Germany car. Thus, I must show them i make the right choice, so i hope all bros and sifu here able to help me in giving some advice to do my precise selection, and prove them Benz "BOLEHHHHH" !

Hence, which spec of W202 is advisable and i should go for?
C200 / C220 / C230 / C200 Kompressor

MANY THANKS AND THOUSAND OF THANKS IN ADVANCE BRO AND SIFU

Hi RWD,

To be honest and frank....for a true MBZ experience, nothing beats cubic inches...therefore, go get a W202 C36/C43/C55 AMG ! Well, you did ask which is da best huh????

Naah, gurau jer.... from yer list, if you can stretch it (mahal sikit), go for the last of the batch W202 230K (the one with the C43 AMG bodykit). In black nampak ganas and performance wise, still can show a Honda Type-R a thing or two if yer up to it !

I believe there was also a W202 C230K Manual (chk with Mudah.com or our brothers here may help), in red for sale. Rare car, since it's the first iteration of the 230K and in the UK they do come in Manual 5-speed box. Garenti takde g/box problem macam gua punye drama.....

But all depends on yer driving needs. If you're a speed demon and needs 200++bhp at minimum, your choice is limited to the 230K minimum > C280 (rare) > C36 (super rare)..

Kalau you jenis bawak keta kool/slow n steady jer and just want the style a Benz offers, a C200 will serve you well. A C220 adds a couple more horses and once you lower the car and fix some nice AMG/Carlsson/Brabus (replica or used Ori...New Original sepertiga rege keta!!) wheels...you're good to go. And even if your car looks fast, you don't need to drive crazy fast since it's a MuuuursayyyyDeeeez Benz....


Good Luck bro.

bro Vitamin..the Benz will be my only car after the switch. Noticed that you are a C-class owner too...if you give those kind of advice, i suppose the car should have something negative in behind ....mind to share your "experience" ?

Thanks for the advice from sifu renngrun and sifu 19owner..

Anymore further suggestion from others? You are welcome to input some suggest for W210 as well

ah...wait two minutes, saya bukan sifu bro. the best sifus would be a person that is a mechanic by profession, which i'm not. i'm still learning here.

suggest you scroll/search up some of the older postings and discussions on cars that you're talking about...plenty have been said before in this forum.

I would say your best bet for a W202 would be a Japan spec C200. Local spec C200 also nice but only big draw back is the PMS ECU setup which is prone to failure and very expensive to replace.

Japan spec cars have nice black sporty interiors, HFM-ECU which is easy and affordable to replace in the event of failure. Furthermore these Japan spec cars have very low mileage when they arrive as recon cars.

Be careful of South African recon cars.

Local spec cars come very well spec, leather, wood trim etc.
