Hello fellow Mercedes Maniacs from NZ

Hi here...

My names Alan, originally from Essex, England, now residing in Auckland, NZ.

I have been a Benz nutter since I was about 13/14 and my dream kind of came true when I bought a new B Class in England 3 years ago. (Kids you see). The car was great...shame Mercedes customer service wasn't.

Anyhow that sold and we're now in NZ. almost bought a 77 450SLC last week but the seller decided to sell it someone lese...thanks for that.

I'm now staring down the barrel of a 1999 CLK320. Should I? Shouldn't I? It's done 145,000 km's and is $11,500 NZD (GBP 5000, USD 8400). Reading the Dog & Lemon guide and it basically says stay away but can it be THAT bad?

Someone I work with suggested I get a 328i with around 80,000 k's for same money - but it's just not a Merc is it?

anyhow thats me....
