1998 C230

In recognizing the compact character of the C230, I found its ride to be fine. I found the oem tires (Eagle LS) to be poor when related to handling and noise - replaced them with Dunlop Sport 5000's and am very satisfied. This model is not the "Kompressor" and the acceleration is adequate, but not spirited. My highway mileage runs in the 33-35mpg range, city about 29mpg. Oil is Redline 10-40, gas is Chevron or Texaco 89 octane, Redline SI additive and NPG coolant from Evans Cooling. Hope this helps!
