Hmm, so alot of the specs are close,
the mb has rear wheel
the si has lsd..
the mb has a little more hp and like 50 more torque...
The price tag msrp is about 9k, diffrence
But after talk downs on a mb, and no talk downs on a si. i think you could narow that gap to about 5k, diffrence more or less..

Im considering both cars very seriously.
I know my insurance would be quite a bit more for a benz.
But the 230 sedan is pretty sporty, and a nice looking benz0
Lemme know wutcha think...

I'll be honest and neutral. I love the looks of the car, but the c230 has had a horrible track record for repairs.

Least reliable cars 2004
Mercedes-Benz S-Class
Jaguar S-Type
BMW 7 Series
Jaguar X-Type
Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Mercedes-Benz C-Class (V6)
Volvo S60 (AWD)
Saab 9-3
Pontiac Grand Prix (supercharged)
Volkswagen Passat (AWD)
BMW 5 Series

to me, this is a deciding factor. The car looks great, and surely looks like a status car, but I personally don't want to deal with repair issues. That's just me though.

well scratch that then...

thats 2 funny-
look at the list, 8 out of the 10 cars are all overpriced luxury rides, that break down.
Yep, If you gotta a million dollars I'd go for the luxury, but if not a millionaire go with the Civic..just my 2 cents.
