Mercedes Benz’s entry level luxury machine, the C Class, is a perfect blend of luxury, performance and value; but all three of those aspects only increase in value when the aftermarket tuners McChip Dkr. got a hold of the baby Benz.

Despite the lack of enthusiasm for diesel powered vehicles here in the U.S. across the pond Europeans cannot get enough of the alternatively fueled machines for their outstanding fuel mileage characteristics and tons of torque.
The only disadvantage of a diesel engine is a slight decrease in power when compared to a gas burning engine with the same displacement.
However the advantage of a turbocharged diesel engine is that loads of extra power can easily be unleashed simply by increasing the boost, and because diesels do not suffer from detonation, the sky is the limit.
