I'd say the answer depends on the driver; speed demon, wants to carry lots of friends, etc. Also how much does maintenance costs factor into things for the driver? In general tho, it's hard to beat the R129 in any way.

For a guy, it would be the SL500....a woman magnet.
For a girl, it would be the E500...more practical car to have friends in it.

Mercedes CLK best of both worlds, seats 4, stylish for a guy or girl, powers about right for the 320 model. I can't tell you how many girls I have got in my car at once from my car! If it was my choice it would be the E500. Honestly I wanted a two seater but thank god I didn't get one because there were so many times where I would need to take friends with me. Plus wouldn't you rather take your car over your parents or friends car somewhere? If you had a two seater you wouldn't be able to take your car if your taking more than 2 people.



Got benz?
