Overall the 320 engine is solid and the CLK shares parts/attributes with the E-Class and the C-Class so I think of them as hybrids. I also think the W209 (2003+) look better as a coupƩ than the W208.

Here's another coupe consideration, it would be brand-new too and under $40,000 if you can wait until later in the year when it launches.

Wow, I actually really like that car and since I wasn't planning on buying til the end of april, I may just wait. I dont know if anyone has driven the BMW 135i but I can tell you, its no kids meal, its actually really fun to drive, and way faster than it looks. Alas I may just wait for this car to hit the shelves.

Im gonna do some "searching" for posts on problems with the CLK 320 but if your bored and feel like voicing your opinion, feel free.
Did you look behind the front seats in the SL? There is lots of room. The 00-02 SL500 is one of the most popular cars at Golf Courses here in FL. People are clearly getting clubs in there.

As I said in the other post, the CLK was nothing more then an overpriced and over-styled slightly shortened (more choppy ride) W203 C320. The W203 was not a great vehicle and neither was its frame.

Yes I did look at the SL and yes you are right there is a lot of room for a standard set of golf clubs, however, being on staff I have to use one of those giant tour bags, which don't fit very well. Right now they ride shotgun with me in the RX-8 and I decided that no matter what the next car I buy the clubs will go in the trunk. Also 00-02 is a little old for my liking. I'll feel more comfortable in an 06 or 07. However the more I think about it I think ill be looking into the 430 over the 320 if I were to get a clk.
