the 500 is clearly a more practicle car. the 55, although fun as hell, isnt very practicle, exspecialy with gas these days. as far as im concerned, the cl500 is a great car and you wouldnt be disapointed by any means. it will last u a life time, and never go out of style.

i dont see much difference in being pratical. the cl is hard to get into, and will still suck gas. and probably cost more than your 55 to repair. i woudl look at an e320 cdi for being practical.

Yeah, the C55 will get better gas mileage than the CL. What's not practical about the C55? 4 door to 2 door car? What's practical about that?
