    Hi there,

    i have got a c220 2005 (94000) miles driven. I am a little concerned about its acceleration when its cold. car literately struggles to move until the engine warms up which is about 10-15 minutes. when it gets warm then it drives superb. no lack of power or acceleration at all.
    I have showed it to my local mechanic as he was like it normal with diesel`s. but i know there is something wrong as it wasn't used to be like this when i first bought it, cold or warm the power / acceleration was very good.

    Also a friend bought the same car and his car is not sluggish at all when cold.

    Does anyone know what the problem might be?
