MarcusF has covered this very accurately here:
Signal to Noise: How a Mercedes-Benz or Porsche DIY type might do it, and why
Find the dub dub dub comparison topic.
Thanks Diesel Benz, the MarcusF article is very informative. It doesn't prove me totally incorrect, or the others totally correct. I would therefore call the W208 a 202/208/210 hybrid

debating between CLK and E350. Which one is better in terms of safety do you think? And also, which one do you personally prefer?
I recommend that you crash one of each into a tree. Whichever one gets you ejected out the windshiled the shortest distance is the safer one.
