Mercedes c180 '94 petrol manual, 150k on the clock (owned for 4 months)

Mercs are class apart! Very good for its age. A very reliable engine! I did around 1000 miles in one trip in less than 15 hours and the engine showed no sign of fatigue. The maximum it can go is 110 miles/hour.

Not very fast for a dash between signals. Its rear wheel drive, if you accelerate a bit too much on a roundabout or turn on a rainy day, you'd seem like Jeremy on Top Gear. No Air conditioner, which means you sweat like a pig in summer!

around 24 miles to a gallon in city and around 30 on motorway.

I can't think of any problem I had with the car apart from a routine Tracking (wheel alignment and balancing). I never had to spend a pence on repair.

Overall a very good and reliable car to own. Not as expensive or difficult to maintain as people think.

Would you like to improve the performance of your vehicle by lowering? Then you are in our ... more

online shop right here you can find lowering
springs for virtually all vehicle makes and
models. We offer high quality lowering springs and
a top processing. Our lowering springs are
manufactured under the strict guidelines of DIN EN
ISO 9001-2001 on CNC winding machines from
chrome-silicon steel, and plastic-coated
endgesetzt as high-quality corrosion protection.
By lowering the stability of your vehicle is
improved, particularly in cornering, which allows
for a sportier driving style. Also play a more
dynamic look, which can achieve a vehicle with a
lowered suspension, for many drivers play an
important role. Our lowering springs you can
reduce the ride height up to 75mm. In addition to
the aforementioned sporty look but the lowering
shifted the focus of your vehicle, allowing a much
sportier driving style. This is manifested by
reduced body roll and a reduced rebound during
acceleration, with the comfort but not missed. Up
to a lowering of 40mm, you can proceed with the
production shocks of your car. Thereafter,
however, you should install sport shocks, because
as of a lowering of 40mm have shortened sport
shock absorbers are used, since the lowering
spring otherwise has no bias more, the chassis can
then no longer work properly and can lead to loud
noises, there is also the risk that is tilted
lowering spring. It is important to also ensure
that the lowering springs and shock absorbers are
optimally matched. In our online shop you can
therefore naturally acquire the right lowering
springs shock absorbers. We also have in all areas
of a wide tuning range, just check out our online
shop.
