W211 vs w210 - SUSPENSIONWISE
I currently own SLK R170, '99, and must admit that I like it very much. Recently I have started working at the University some 40km from my home. Problem is that I have cervical spondilosys and my SLK has some AMG tuning done (17'' rims, spoilers...). Ride is kind of "vibrating" and I have this vibrating, "buzzing" feeling for some 20 minutes when I get out of my car. Lumbar spine has resonant frequency of 5Hz and I always get my feets and some hand fingers numb and tingling after I get out of my car.
I will not consider relocating because of a job. So I will sell my SLK to my little bro and get myself new Benz. Question is whether will it be W210 or W211. Money is important, looks are not. Yes, W211 is more beautiful with its' sleek lines and etc... But what interests me the most is SUSPENSION. I do not want to feel any vibrations, bumps, etc... I drove in W210 number of times, and I am totally satisfied with it, but one my friend keeps telling me that his previous car - W211 E270 had some great adjustable suspension.
If difference between what it feels like is negligible, I will buy W210. But if W211 is somehow miles ahead of W210 suspensionwise, I would opt out for W211.
Thanks in advance guys,
