My neighbor has a CLK55 and he likes it a lot. I'm not familiar with the C55. My salesman drives an older C36 and he likes that. I would advice against buying an Audi, and I think Mercedes AMG is a safer bet than a BMW M3.

Both are great cars, with the same engine, suspension and front end. I like the CLK55 AMG a bit better, because it is more rare, and I prefer a Mercedes 2-door versus a sedan.

Interior space is very similar, but I think the car looks more sleeker compared to the 4-door C55.

Otherwise, it's a personal preference. M3's, everyone has, and they are low in torque. Audi S4s are fun, but the newer Audis always trump the older ones. I like my AMG. It's fast, sturdy on the fwy and solid.
