Greetings from Sydney, Australia - CLK500

Hi all,

Just picked up my 2005 CLK500 Avantgarde (C209) last weekend.

Here's a pic I took with my blackberry... Going to give it a wash on the weekend and update with some pics from my DSLR.

I have previously only owned Subaru's and multiple STI's highly modified track weapons and now have graciously made the move to a luxury cruiser, but am honestly surprised (shouldn’t be but I was) with how great the handling and power is from the 5.0 Litre.

Hoping to learn a lot about the car, as I could easily rattle off small details with Subaru's. Hoping for the same learning and knowledge to be gained from here.

Cheers, Fred
