    My 1999 spec C180 had a tip box in it but a 2000 C240 i once owned for a while didnt, it seems to be a lottery!!

    Just looked at my C250TD which has tip and it has PRN -D+ as its shift no 234 at all and that has the later box fitted.

    I had no idea you could get a tip box on the C250 TD. It must be quite rare? I take it this box doesnt have the weak bushings...

    You could get tip boxes and 6-speed manuals on 202s, but only very late ones and not all of them by the looks of it

    The tip box in a 202 was on cars "built" from 01/08/99.
