2003 C230 Sport Coupe vs. 2003 C320 Sport Coupe

I just realized that there is a upsize version of the C230. That is sweet, does anyone have a C320 Sport Coupe? I wonder how much of a Horse Power difference you can feel. I know many of you already know but I had to share my excitement!!!!! I'll be looking at getting one of those instead of a C230 Sport Coupe. 215hp+6 speed manual= happy happy joy joy Man thats sweet.

I haven't driven the C320. I do know that the C320 is heavier with more on the weight on the front wheels. If you autocross, that is a consideration. Will more hp make up for possibly poorer handling? If you are into modding the C230 will be easier to mod when more parts become available. Modding the C320 will be expensive. All I can say is drive both and buy the one you prefer.

Ya I would love to drive both but in my area I've had trouble even getting my hands on a C230 to test drive, so its harder to get the too. I wouldn't be autocrossing with it, I want it because It will be my million dollar cruiser. I'll build it to 250hp if posible and put on some 18' AMG wheels and maybe a stereo, I just have to wait until my insurance goes down in a year or so until I can buy one.

Hi Alex,

I wouldn't modify the power in the sport coupe - buy the 6 cylinder C coupe instead. You know that once you do something like adding on to its horsepower you take from reliability - just so you are aware.
