What Benz to Buy?

Hi all,

I'm a new member here from Australia.

I am currently in the process of buying a new car and finally taking the plunge and buying a second hand Mercedes - my question is though, which one?!

I absolutely love cars, they are a huge passion of mine. I'm 27 and have had the following vehicles:
- Audi A6 2.8 Quattro
- Jaguar XTYPE 3.0Ltr Sport
- Alfa Romeo 156 2.5V6 TI
and my current car (which i've had 2 years and loved every minute of) a Mini Cooper S.

I've decided it's time for a change and having always been in love with my Mums 05 CLK320, I want a Mercedes.

I only want to spend about 35k max and am looking at the following second hand options:
C200 Kompressor (avantgarde or elegance)
E200 Kompressor
CLK280/CLK500 (would obviously be an older CLK500)

I know these are all extremely different cars - i'm steering away from the S350 as maintenance costs scare me to death and am probably leaning towards the an 08 C200 Kompressor because it will be the newest/lowest kms for the money.

Was just hoping you could give me your thoughts on my options? Would you guys recommend a C200 over an E200 for example? Should i stay away from an S Class? Should I consider a CLK? (My Mum's CLK320 is just starting to cost her money - electrical issues mainly)
