RE: Is a CLK a two door C-Class. Like a CL is to an S?
To my knowledge, though I hate to say this, the CLK is more of a 2 door C-Class than a 2 door E. I read that in an article about the previous W208 CLKs, they were referring to the very similar dual bubble eye headlights found the W208 CLK & W210 E. That info could be outdated.
Coupes look hotter-longer. If you wanna feel/look younger, a sporty Benz coupe is the way to go, or a convertible. It's sexier than a 4 door sedan. If money is no issue (you have an S), I would get a CL or even sexier and younger, a SL. That will instantly knock some yours off, at least in the eyes of women. I'm not that crazy about the exterior of new CLK, so I'd say go up to a CL. But I hear the AMG C's are quite fun. Automotive expert Pat Goss (of MotorWeek TV, the Washington Post & Goss's Garage) said this weekend on his radio show that he has a C32. He has owned over 30 Vettes and many Mercedes Benzes (including mine and yours). That changed me perspective on the C AMGs.
Queen of the W208s.
