I believe it was 2001 (for the SLK) that they fixed the kompressor sound. It now is much less coarse, and sounds a little more refined. And I believe it even has 190 horsepower now (from 185).

I have heard great reviews on the driving fun that the C230k coupe gives, and I bet it's a blast to drive also. But I don't like the rear end, who is MB kidding!? It's a hatchback! And a damn ugly one at that, IMO. The front is beautiful, and I think the idea and concept were good, but how could they possibly make the rear look like that!? (And then to call it a COUPE!)
