Just want to acquire benz knowledge...

Hey everyone, I just graduated college recently and my father wants to buy me a Mercedes... now an S class was the original plan, 04-05 however I decided this vehicle is too big, then we began looking at same year E class which I really like. However just today we came up with the idea that in the fall time when prices down a bit, he wants to buy me a CLS500 and until then give me his ML 320 with AMG package on it. So hey I thought maybe this car is worth the wait... sorry for making this long but I have 2 questions:

by fall time (Oct/Nov) will the 06 CLS500 drop alot in price from what they are now which is roughly 50-60k$ and the other one is; is the bolt pattern on the ML same as CLS for the rims? If i were to put on 22'' rims on ML, can i just transfer them onto the CLS?
Any help is appreciated

hey youd need to ask in the cls forum thread on the main page i think the cls can take 20"s not sure about 22"s
personly id take a s class over everything
well actully id rather a 2002 CLK430 Avantguard over anything that car has it all

but the ml is much harder to manuver handle compared to a S ?? trust me... but it sounds like you have some great cars around you...

Get a E55 AMG

These cars are awesome.

The CLS is ok but ask in that forum for more info.
