Mercedes Enthusiast
 
The April 2019 issue looks to be a cracker must be the feature article about the W202 C-Class.

Tim now you have owned the W202 for a few months, how are you enjoying it? are you glad you made the move from your W126?

Hello Bryce,

Very happy with the W202!

The W126 is now in Sydney I have only seen a few photos of the car in the last six months.

In the future I would like another W126 sedan or coupe or even a convertible W107.

I think I missed the special edition mag that featured the top Benz models over the years. I’m not sure if it was Merc Enthusiast or a different mag altogether.

Stay with your W202 C220.
If properly maintained, it will be just as reliable as a Toyota Corolla.
You have 400 cc's of extra engine capacity as well.

Yours is in much better condition by the looks of it, than the average W202.
With YOUR particular car, you are not going to have any problems with rust, AND
it is cheaper to run and maintain, compared to a W126 or an R107, with a ragtop, and should present you with fewer problems over the time you are likely to own it.


I have learned to really appreciate my 202, and it is in nowhere as nice as condition as your example. It gets used mainly as runabout.

I have loaned it to three other people so far, all female drivers. They have all learned to greatly appreciate it, despite the fact that, from my experience at least,
women couldn't care less about cars.
All they want is to get where they want to go, with dependability and safety, and without worry.

And when women damage a wheel, or open the door into a brick or concrete wall in the shopping centre————-
“Oh well, it’s ONLY. a car” :mad:

Its by classic and sports car. I got the jaguar one a couple of months back but the couple of newsagents I checked didn't have the benz one.
