I think the '97 might be a CL500 but not sure. At least the later ones have that designation aka W220 or 2000+. The coupƩs are rarer so might command a higher price. As to reliability/quality, those should be the same. Good luck and welcome to BW.

One factor to consider is that the coupes are rarer and have many parts unique to them, so finding some parts and especially trim and body pieces will be harder should you ever need them. Bear in mind, harder=costs more money.

They certainly have a fan club. Why don't you scroll down from this general forum and ask your questions on the W140 forum, found in the sedans section?
