More Power!

I recently took delivery of a C300 sport with manual transmission and the multimedia package. After a couple of months I am craving more power. Would have gone for the 350 but I'm a manual trans guy.
Does anyone have any suggestions for a super charger for this car?
Warranty issues?
Otherwise I love the car....styling and handling arre awesome.
Also would like the 18 inch AMG wheels...where can I get these?
Does the larger brake rotor and disc from the 350 bolt onto the 300 and where can I get it?
Thanks!!

I have a C350. I find it has good power for around town. For track use, it would be nice to have more power. A supercharger would be nice on a C300 but the cost effectivness is questionable. It would probably cost $10,000 - $15,000. There are no supercharger packages out yet so it would have to be a custom project. It would not increase the resale value of the car so it would be a flat expense. You might consider a BMW 335i with a manual - I have one of these and it is a very quick car.

Sorry, but it sounds like you bought the wrong car. By dropping another $10-15K on a supercharger, you probably should have just gotten a BMW 335i.

2nd. If you're looking to do tuning, the 335i or 2.0T would have been a better choice. With simple software and/or bolt on mods, they turn out nice numbers and at a relatively small cost vs tuning a NA engine.
