Merc CLK55 or Merc E55 (both 2000 model)? Reliability, Performance...
Hi all! I have a BMW 330Ci 2001 model with all options. It's a great car! But I'm looking for something with more power. I have approximately $25,000 to spend. I was considering an E34 M3 with a manual gearbox (not SMG). But I think I would be going backwards, considering I have an E46 BMW 330Ci. I want a car with power, luxury, safety, reliability, low maintenance costs and something that won't attract the police. I was thinking of a Merc CLK55 or Merc E55 (both 2000 models). Can anyone advice me of the pros and cons of the CLK55 and E55.
Or maybe a Audi S4 B6 or BMW M3 E46 (but I think the BMW will be out of my price range for a while). Can anyone advice me of the pros and cons of the CLK55 208, E55 210, BMW M3 E46 and Audi S4 B6. Cheers!
Ps. I live in Australia and I'm not sure if the Merc AMG's that are sold here are tuned / spec'd different to the European sold cars. Anyone know this?
