Good day folks,
I will be driving off with my new 2003 Black C230 Kompressor this Friday!!
Here in Montreal Canada, the MSRP for this car has increased from $33,950 (2002 model) to $34,450 (Canadian dollars).
Also, the engine on the 2003 is completely redesigned... instead of the 2.3L (a presumably noisy engine on the 2002), I have the new 1.8L engine. It pumps out 188 hp (192 lb-ft torque). A wee bit less than the 2002 engine, but presumably less noisy and smoother. It is also (according to the litterature) 10% more fuel efficient.
I'm surprised nobody mentionned the new engine for the 2003's...
