I definitely will post pics for you all to see when I make a choice.

I feel kinda dumb, but what is the W209 and W208. Or is there somewhere you can direct me to learn.

Not dumb at all, only new to MB and mis-informed. Just scroll down from here to the Coupe/Convertible section and you will see those are 2 different CLK chassis. I don't remember the exact years but the W208 was the 1st CLK series and the W209 the newest one.

Cool Go with the 320 CLK

You don't need a big boat.

Gasoline may not stay cheap forever - remember not so long ago it was over $4 per gallon. Next stop $6 per gallon (the increase will be largely TAX - you heard it here first) So go with the most economical with very good performance.

Look around in Florida - many nice cars there driven by little old blue haired ladies - that become available... just be sure it really IS a Florida car. Dealers have been know to import them from salty New England...

good luck

Well since you asked, the only clk owners I know and drivers I see are women
