Just saying hello

My current vehicle is KINDA an MB, 2008 Jeep Grand Cherokee CRD.

Made the purchase last July when Diesel prices were through the roof.

I was initially looking at the ML320, but Chrysler was GIVING away the GC at the time, the sticker price on mine was $56k CAN and change before taxes etc.

I ended up paying $39K out the door, with 0% financing, thanks an old friend at the dealership.

The ML was MUCH nicer, but this was intended as a tow vehicle for my racing trailer and the price difference between the 2 was hard to ignore.

the 3.0 diesel motor is a work of art.

So, I'm now in the market for a new daily driver, but I'm kinda torn between 2 MB models.

the SLK350 and the C63.

I just don't know which one to choose.
