Hey ladies and gents!!

My wife just purchased a 2003 C230, (C7,C5 package.). I must say it is a awesome car. I currently drive a 2003 Audi A4 1.8. Now i'm in my glory, hehe. I do love the supercharger spooling while shifting into gear. I actually drove the car from the dealer and the whole time i had the radio off. I will send you guys pics soon. (-:

My husband surprised me with my C230, and I also find it difficult to choose between listening to the engine (sure sounds good) or to music... Your wife will lover her car I'm sure. I've had mine for 6 weeks now and I haven't let my husband drive it yet He he he... 8)

One Week C230k Newbie!

Hey Ya'll.

It's been one official week since getting my C230k 2003 (C7, C5, C2) and I am just lovin' it! :lol:

Two quick questions:

1) It just snowed, any recommendations for snow tires?
2) I have the Bose sound system but wanted to add a Bazooka Powered Tube Subwoofer in the back... is that a smart move? Or have there been reported problems with that?

Thanks!

Question: The C2 and C7 packages appear to be redundant, except for the autodimming mirrors. Did the dealer make any adjustment for the redundancy?

Thanks.

Correction... C5, C7

You are correct, C5 and C7!

Thanks for the wheel advice! Looks like it's a must this season!

As for the Bose System... I sent an inquiry to Bose themselves asking them what they thought would be best in terms of additions and compliance and they replied that if I added anything it would create some sort of intereference and lower the sound quality? Has anyone learned this to be true? I basically just want to enhance the bass by adding a subwoofer while retaining my current system and steering wheel controls.

Thanks!

MChu - I have the Bose system as well, and I thought that it came with a "sub-woofer" type arrangement or at least some kind of base enhancement. Maybe its just that you're looking for a REALLY hefty base output 8) , however I find that my system kicks out way more base than I'll ever need!.
