Look at the 1999s the C230 gets a supercharger and hence has a lot more power.
Overall it is a sweet car. As with most Mercedes, a lot of little things can be/go wrong.
Newer mercedes use a maintenance schedule called FSS (Flexible service). The car has sensors that tell you when stuff has to be done, like oil change, etc. Now, these cars go 10,000-12,000 miles between oil changes (they use synthetic oil). So, you want to double check the maintenance records, and make sure stuff was done. A lot of owners do oil changes in between the FFS times, which is a good thing.
www.mbworld.com is a great place to go for info.
