1999 Mercedes-Benz C280 Sport Sedan -
Classic C-Class (W202) - Rare, "Sport" model
Loaded with factory options • Low mileage! • Average 22.09 MPG
This classic C280 with sleek Sport accents is factory original (*) and everything works very well!
Its 3rd private owner has taken a rare and fleeting opportunity to own this
low-mileage classic Mercedes-Benz crafted with German engineering and quality.
(The last year before the dreaded 2000-2005 term of poor quality control of their vendors.)
Many owners have put over 100,000 miles on these gems, and some over 300,000 miles!
(All 4 wheels have had clip-on weights removed & rebalanced with stick-on weights mounted on the back sides.)

Original purchaser owned it for 6 yrs. 9 mo. in New Jersey and bought it from Prestige Motors.
I have the original NJ selling dealer's Vehicle Master Inquiry (VMI) report of first 23,000 miles.
I purchased the C280 Sport in August 2006, and am the second private owner (a non-smoker), although CARFAX will show me as Owner 3 because New Jersey dealerships apparently do a title transfer to themselves to hide the previous owner. It is garaged in the Hudson Valley, NY, USA.
This classic C280 with sleek Sport accents is factory original (no aftermarket items except tires & wheel weights) and everything works very well!
Not a single mechanical problem in the 9,800 miles I have driven it.
(This C280 Sport is now rarely driven since purchasing my next W202 model, a 1999 AMG C43.)
RH Xenon Lens and seal were professionally replaced with OEM parts.
It appears that the rear bumper had a repair and the lower portion of rear bumper repainted (photo).
I sold this beauty in November 2012.
Be aware that Used Car Value price listings may not include these equipped options:
Pkg C1: Xenon Headlights, Headlamp Wipers/Washers, Rain Sensor;
Telescoping Wheel; Heated Front Seats; 6 disc CD Changer & Integrated Phone.
Some agencies value these options ridiculously low (e.g. Factory Installed Xenon Headlights are worth far more than a few hundred dollars!), while valuing others unreasonably high (e.g. of what value is an integrated analog cell phone?).
