[besides the lower-end, C230tampon]??
even in europe??
europe they have a few but i am not famliar with them
as for the states, the 230 kompressor. and from what i read the c32 might get one
People who can afford Mercedes are too good for a manual
yup they do, in europe automatics are a minority..
Manual is currently available on the C230 coupe and the SLK. In the US.
what about the older body-style c-series? like... a 97 C36 AMG...
any possible tranny swaps?
wish it was like that here
The majority* of people here can barely drive an automatic, you don't really want them having to worry about shifting as well do you?
* and by majority, i mean of course women
but still i'd love it if just about every car was offered w/ a standard tranny
oh, well that sure, thought you meant the majority of the cars on the road to be a manual, which would be a horrible idea here
dont think so. and if there was, im sure the price would be an anal raping and a half
women that can drive stick well > *
yeah, but most women i know can't even drive a stick, let alone well
i always pay more attention when driving a manual...
i LOVE the C36 AMG... but I hate that it's auto only... im tired of my auto...
I'm pretty sure they do.....not sure on what models
Mercedes has always made the claim that their automatics are much tougher (ie: can handle more power better) than their manuals. At least, that's what they say in the press releases in the States.
If you like teh C36, check out the C43.
swap = mucho pessos but i'm sure it's possible, why not get a 97 M3 (same performance). I am no expert but I don't think these came with manual transmissions and i think only like 200 of these were ever imported to north america.
I think they use Getrag trannies
i know one or two that can
cause my brother has this:
now with tinted windows, koni adjustables, and h&r springs...
youre in another country, right?
can you look around for me?
benzes sold in India come with manual tranny option... definitely for the C-class, and im almost positive options on the E- and S-Classes, as well.
i'm thinking since the C36 is the same block as the normal c-class, the tranny should "bolt-in"...
