2000 C230k sport, 1999 c43 Amg, 1997 C280 sport
New member alert!!!

Hello w202 owners my name is Sandro and I live in Queens, New York. Iíve been on many forums like club202 (og w202 forum!!) and benzworld just viewing threads for the most part. Iíve never introduced myself on any of the forums until now. I chose this forum cause I think itís so much better then benzworld and plus club202 is dead now . I see that this forum is still pretty active which is great and plus thereís so many great threads Iíve read through. Now Iíd like to tell you about my w202 cars at the moment. I daily a 2000 c230k sport which was my first car I got Towards the end of highschool last year. I later saved up my money and worked to buy a 1999 c43 Amg and a 1997 C280 Sport. The amg is my project at the moment Iíve been gathering a few things for it over the months that Iíve had the car. I purchased 4 piston Brembos from a c32, 3 peice Wald rims, and a few things that it was missing.... I still Have a lot more to go. I hope to get the 43 ready by the summer and plan to sell my c230k, and C280 soon. Hereís a few pics of my w202s.

haha W202 fever when I end up selling my C280 and c230k I will need a new winter daily for the cold winters here in New York. Not sure what to get yet a w210, w203, w124. Something manual would be nice but that means Iíd have to buy a Volkswagen, bmw or Volvo

The silver one looks somehow nicer than your project AMG, must be the 744 silver metalic?
What rims do you have on the silver car?
The fronts and rears are deep, are they Lorinser?
haha yeah the 744 silver metallic is quite a nice color. The previous owner had the rims on the car when I bought it. They are not lorinser, the rims are from a lowkey company called alzor. My daily looks so much nicer then the c43 cause of how it sits. Currently on h and r sport springs with Bilstein shocks. For the c43 Iím looking to buy a suspension mod this week. A buddy of mine on instagram recommenced me coilovers from a company called JOM. He has them on his c43 and it looks sweet!!!! I might give those a try because I like the idea of Being able to adjust ride height. I can have my c43 nice and low for the summer here, then for the winter I can set it back to stock height. Plus with the combo of wheels and brakes I have ready to install will look sick !!!!! By the way I have a car page I started on Instagram @broken_euros everyone feel free to follow ! I may change the name soon though

I don't know if I would use such unknown brand on an AMG?
Don't know their component quality?
Go with Koni adjustables and Vogtland springs.
You can't adjust the ride height but you can fiddle with stiffness
the JOM Coilovers are priced from $400-$600 depending on where you find them. Jom makes coilovers for many Volkswagens, bmws and Audiís. They have mixed reviews so Iím not sure about them anymore. I was thinking of vogtland springs might buy those and save money . The nice thing about the JOM coilovers is that they bolt right on. Heard that some coilovers you have to do some retro fitting for the w202s

dude thatís sick !!!! I feel like Iíve seen your c43 before . Iíve never seen a c43 in person until I bought mine. But this past month Iíve seen 2!!!!!! My friends dad just picked one up so I got to look at that. And the other day when I went to buy my Wald wheels I spotted a c43 by hillside ave and I couldnít believe it. I went around the block to make sure it was a c43 and it was!! Is thatís yours ? And by the way when I have my c43 registered and on the road we should meet up

Don't daily the C43, especially in NY. Car is too rare to replace/repair if you get dinged, etc.I'd honestly keep one of the other w202s to daily (or at least use as a parts car).

haha I can totally agree with you on that. I plan on having the car registered through the summer to enjoy it and then when itís winter, put the car away and register a winter beater.

i currently just have the stock 17s which are pretty dogged except the spare . I did purchase these 18 inch staggered monoblocks off a w220 s class. Not sure what the exact name of them are but these are them. Might save them for a future Benz cause of the Wald wheels I got the other day The 3 piece wheels with a bigger chrome lip will be a neck breaker on the c43!!

nice bro your c43 is heat !!! Thought you had a black one ! So I definitely never seen yours around here. Black seems to be the most common color. I plan on wrapping mine in the future because black car and black interior = hell in the summer. I noticed the amg color caps as well I ordered mine last week and they came in today. Once I get home from work I will unbox them. Hopefully there good quality !!! And nice Iím stuck on what to do with my stock suspension I like the idea of coil overs so I can adjust the ride height and tweak it to what I want. But at the same time springs are a bargain and are a good mod for the price. Btw hereís a better pic of the wheels I just found

Silver one drivers smooth but the black one is in better condition with the tuxedo interior and low miles 75k cars pretty sold
I put a new transmition in it and gonna touch up the paint this summer , it needs to be lowered as well and 18 inch rims
I don’t drive them every day but every chance I get I take them for a spin V8 power
you now of any meetups out here would be nice to start up a MB car club

Good find...never see any 43/36's here in north jersey.Though there is a silver 36 in North Bergen at a gas station been there for years...plated and I see it parked in different spots from time to time.... always tempted to see if the owner would sell but if I were to get a 36 I want Imperial red....

Sorry boys haven't checked the forum in a while, sometimes i wish i had a c36 because i feel like its a little more special then a c43. Amg did a lot of work to the m104 engine to bore it out to a 3.6, as on the other hand they tweaked the m113 very little..... but i still love my c43 at the end of the day imperial red!!! thats my favorite color for our w202 cars !!!!!!
