CLK550 coupe

I am thinking of trading my car in for this coupe. Does any one have the 07 or the 08 that they can give me their opinion of it?

Very nice car. I'm a hack and I drove the 2007 press car for an extended time. I was due to drive the 2008 this week, but I'm in NY on another gig.

The CLK is a very powerful car. More powerful than the CLK55 was. Being the last of the W209, it sould be the best of the breed. What are you interested in, braking, handling, fuel economy, reliability (too early for anyone to make any claims), or?

I think the Premium III (P03 package) with the heated seats (option 873) makes a well rounded car. Even wih the US dollar in the toilet, the pricing really doesn't reflect it. If you like the look of the W209, drive one.

I am looking for something that has decent power but yet drive smooth but yet aggressive. I saw on at a local dealership and I think I am in love.LOL

I have an 07 CLK550 and I really can't say enough good about it. I had previously had an 06 CLK500 which I thought was unbeatable. Once I picked up my 550 that all changed. Both can be smooth rides and both are fast but the 550 is insane...the gas mileage really is the only thing that suffers but who cares. I was actually able to get 26.4mpg with the 500, havent gotten above 23mpg with the 550. Oh, and it sounds like a beast and eats Audis and BMWs for breakfast! HA!

get the CLK550.
