I think your model actually has a few more hp than the 1999 C230 Sport we had. Wish it was available with a manual at the time, we might have kept it. The automatic was really unpleasant in an otherwise pretty nice vehicle. The Kompressor was really pretty impressive, lots of torque for a little motor, but it exchanged gas to make that torque and we never got more than about 26 mpg, with 22 the norm. Is the new model a little less thirsty? Good luck, Jim
