Default Benz C-320 Vs. acura TL?

My friend has a 2002 or 2003 c320 and im getting a 2004-2006(not sure yet but i think the years are all the same performace wise) Acura TL (both cars are Auto). His has a new cold air intake and i forgot what but something that makes his RPM go higher b4 switching gears. My question is who would win in a drag race and what could i do to make my time faster such as upgrades or using the "fake manual" ?Also if any 1 has ne tips on how to drag race cuz i know that if i just floor it the wheels will spin and should i use just the normal auto?Also i know that the acura has a really slow pick up at the very begining so how long would the race have to b b4 i can make that up?

The Acura is a bigger car and has more power. The C320 competes with the Acura TSX.The Acura should be faster. It is definately the better car.

drag race on the track. put on some slicks or radials and you are good to go. you should beat him without problem because your friend drives one of the slowest Mercedes ever made. if you want to whoop him bad, get the mercedes C43 because it's the same base as his car but it handles and drives like a supercar.... plus it looks alot sleaker and I am sure he will drool all over it. Getting the Acura will only make him hate you because german car drivers don't get along with us import guys that much.

My sister has a C320 and it's so slow that it's dangerous merging onto a freeway. A TL should be able to beat it with the engine off.

I go for the Acura TL much faster than the C320. Be careful with racing cars. Would not advise anyone to do such on the public roads.

You want to race? Make sure you can afford it. Acura does not have a good track record on the Tranny dept. Anyway, IMHO, I rather race some that I can break and fix for less. Consider that as part of the purchase.Good luck on any that you buy. :-)
