    People who can afford Mercedes are too good for a manual

    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... :big grin:

    any possible tranny swaps?

    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 :)

    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 :o
     
  12. dont think so. and if there was, im sure the price would be an anal raping and a half :hs:
     
  13. women that can drive stick well > * :yum:

    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.

    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.

    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"... :hs:
