    So I was looking on Autotrader and I found this W203 C-Class Avantgarde in Orion Blue of which from what I have seen is very rare. I'm just wondering if it is possible to upgrade the supercharger that is in that engine to try and get out 200 BHP out of the motor?

    well I guess a smaller pulley and a remap would push the BHP up , that's how its done in most SC powered cars

    Yeah the price is a steal in my opinion of for the condition it is in. Usually the driver seat is worn down but I think the current owner put on that cover because the leather on the wheel might have been worn out.

    In almost every case it’s better, easier, cheaper and more long lived to just buy a bigger engined example in the first place and then remap that.

    Looks nice....rare colour possibly but as above, steering wheel is horrid
    M271 engine with 100k on it though and you want to stress it?
    Would need new supercharger and headers probably and as Craig says ...

    OMG, it's only a steering wheel cover thankfully, unreal isn't it. He/she obviously thinks it's nice otherwise they would have took it off for the photo shoot :rolleyes:

    I don't think he is far off asking what its worth, but it has an M271 engine and so I would like to see history of cam chain/sprockets. Although at that mileage, it probably has been done already.

    I think that's the same blue as our old 203.
