I'd say slightly, but I'd also say be sure you have a warranty.

as far as the engine is concerned yes it would be more reliable but the cl 500 also has abc suspension. so all you are really trading for is a slower car with a better engine.

i agree, be ready to put out, the cl, will give you a run for for ur money, why you ask, ABC, which is the heart and soul of benz, there front end suspension and abc, is very expensive to repair, so make sure ur warranty covers that, this vehicle is a huge chick magnet whip, trust me, all you gotta do is wave ur hand out the window, and they will come running!!!!!!!!!!!!11
