New to Mecedes, again

New owner of a 2009 CLK350, after 5 years of driving my Crossfire roadster (love that car) the lack of space finally got to me, let alone new tires every year and a half. Wanted another convertible (this is my 7th) that would feel like my old 97 Audi cabrio. Road tested the Boxer; Jag; Vettes; Audi's; Mustangs; Nissan; New Camer; basically all of them - really didn't like them any better than my Crossfire and didn't come close to the 97 Audi until I hit the CLK. Like old home week! Picked the car up over the weekend and so far so good!

PS my last real Mercedes was a 1970 280SL - car almost broke me!
