Smile new member & potential AMG owner

i do not own any Mercs yet but i have been a life long fan of all and any models of Mercs, plus my parents had an W202, W211, and a few other BMWs and Audis, so i grew up with Mercs too

i'm currently in college for mech. engineering, obviously because i love cars! i've been seriously considering trading in my current Chrysler 300C in for an AMG and a sport bike too if there's money left.

i'm currently looking at either a C43 (had a C180 in the fam for 8 years) or a C32.

if i'm looking for a weekend/road trip & occasional track car, which one would you guys recommend? build quility? reliability? and how much money should i put aside for maintenance per year (i can do most of the work myself)?


edit: also, cost for mods? i've heard it's easy to increase power in a C32, but C43 to 55 swap sounds like a fun idea somewhere down the road
