It may just have something to do with the demand for the body style on the used market. While on the new car market side the E55 would have a higher sticker price than the CLK.

because there are more on the market (but you can still get a very good deal on a clk55)
i would get the cleanest, lowest mileage e55 i could find--[:o)]

The only problem with buying a used high performance vehicle is that a lot of them are leased and the people that lease them don't take care of them like someone intending to keep the vehicle for the long haul. IMHO
