Pros and Cons of Each Car... (your job)

Ok here are four different cars I am deciding between, I don't want anything particularly super fast, but that being said I refuse to have a base class model of any of the vehicles. I am favored towards fast to toss around cars.

Either way each car is going to have these rims put on it:

and the badging removed so you do not know what it is.

CLK55 AMG

CLK500

C32 AMG

E500 Sport

What do you guys think, of each single car?

RE: Pros and Cons of Each Car... (your job)

i would go for the CLK 55. I would want the most power out of all of them. Just my opinion. I love the look of the W208. So I would say, Go for the first one. The 2002 CLK 55 AMG.

My cars:

BLACK 1996 S500 (W140) - Sold

BURGUNDY 1989 560 SEL (W126) - Sold

To me forget the CLK500, I would want the sports suspension the other 3 have as a minimum. Classics are something I like so the E500 sport would be the one. It's a sleeper or Q car to look at it and has and will always be considered something special. If only they brought them out to OZ........

FYI, I think that C32 has been at that dealership for at least 6 months, at least...

yup. I would still say go for the CLK 55. It looks like it is the best one there to me. You get lots of power, good looks. I love it. The W208 is awesome.

My cars:

BLACK 1996 S500 (W140) - Sold

BURGUNDY 1989 560 SEL (W126) - Sold

Ha Ha you're right scratch that C32 and replace it with this one:

C32 AMG

I don't mean those SPECIFIC cars, but cars in similar millage/price ranges.

CLK 500, new body style and warranty for a few more miles and you can buy an extended one while you are under factor warranty cheaper than an out of warranty car. If you talk about speed its not worth it to pay more for a 55AMG unless its a supercharged one. the 0-60 real life between a CLK500 and CLK55 is only a car length and if the amg messes up you can be even or win. but i would get the CLK500 and keep the rims that the CLK500 has on it.
