Which to buy & why

Looking between 2004 & 2005 CLK 320A cabriolets.
Anything anyone can tell me which is better, (cost no factor) as far as ride, comfort, dependability etc. would be greatly appreciated.
Any comments to help me decide between the 2 is appreciated.

Since your questions are model-specific, try posting this on the W209 New CLK Class (2003-present) forum. Just scroll down from this General Mercedes-Benz and you will easily find it. 2004-2005 owners will eventually see your post here, but that should get you quicker, and more, replies.
Good luck and welcome to the forum,

If cost is no factor; why don't you go ahead and buy the 2005 model?

decision?

I was wondering if there was any advantage to buying a 2005 over a 2004 as far as technology advances, better ride etc.
In some cases a newer model is not neccessarily a better model, as there is no differences. Other times a newer model year has some better features. Just wondering in the case of Mercedes .

Just a guess, but it looks like there would be a much greater difference between 2002/2003 and 2004/2005. In the cars that MB makes for 6-8 years, they have a minor update about half-way through the run. You are trying to decide between the 2nd and 3rd model year, and my guess is that there is no significant difference between those two.

Like discipline said "If cost is no factor; why don't you go ahead and buy the 2005 model?" That the same thing I would do.
