What counts as which heh? I was thinking something like this -
I know that is 58k, but there are some 05 platers and stuff with less miles
that make it under the money - I just liked the wheels on that one :-)
I struggle to beleive the equivalent Audi would be nicer heh! Also, the
Audi like 3ltr range petrol engines aren't even close to a patch on the BMW
straight sixes - which are the best available in that sector by a fair way.
Ah this is a C230K is appears (K been the 1.8sc suffix), with 192bhp, and
there is a C230 with a 2.5 na motor as well, that makes 204bhp according to
Parkers and is half a second slower to 60 than the K (8.4 as opposed to
7.9). The C230K was introduced in 04, so whether it replaced the normal
C230, someone else will have to answer that. It was a bit less Co2 output
as well, 214 as opposed to 222 - both band F.
And of course the old 230 being a 2.3 I4 donk too.
I had this half baked idea that the C180K and C200Ks were both the
supercharged Mitsibishi engine, but the C230K was a 2.3 I4 supercharged.
However I've only really paid attention to the Mercedes Benz CDI range...
And tip-ex out the engine size on my MOT and insurance documents?
We have to keep the documents on file, which makes buying something with
a big engine, even if it's quite economical, a bit problematic.

It's true on an X350. Perhaps not an ally XJ, but all the XJ40 based stuff
has a daft boot.
My Dad's current X350 doesn't strike me as being especially quiet, in
comparison to my 406. The XJ40s seemed stupidly quiet. I think everyone else
has caught up and the low profile optional tyres on my Dad's don't help.
