Merc C32 or W210 E55 or w211 E500 or CLK
Hi all, I currently have an E46 330Ci and I'm interested in selling it so I can get something with more power, but keeping the luxury and looks. I'm thinking either a C32, a W210 E55, a W211 E500 or even a Merc CLK500 or CLK55, an Audi S4 B6 or BMW E34 M3. I've noticed that most M3's have most likely been thrashed and are a little older looking. The W210 E55 also looks its age, but I drove one and it feels and goes great! Want a car that is also reliable and not expensive with problems. The C32 looks more modern but I'm not sure, as It's supercharged if it will likely cost me a fortune in repairs etc. I was told by a Mercedes dealership that the supercharger alone costs $15,000. Can people please advice me on the cars I have mentioned including reliability. Also if I went for the CLK500 or W211 E500, if there any performance improvements that can be done such as ECU re-mapping that won't cost a fortune. I won't have much $ after I sell my BMW 330ci so that's why I have mentioned the cars that aren't from AMG.
Your advice will be much appreciated.
