New here! Need help on making a Mercedes purchase!

Hi guys I'm new here (sorry if I didn't post in the correct area) I'm 17 years old and legally licensed in Florida and I need help on my next purchase. I currently drive a 1986 corvette manual and I was planning to take a loan out my senior year in highschool next year to purchase a Benz but I'm not sure if I should purchase a used e55 Amg 2005 or 2006 , a clk 550 , or should I just buy a 2006 c230 and add some mods to it. Which am I better off with? Also what is the difference in power from the coupe c230k and c230 4 door. thanks!

18 is a little young to go into debt, except for two things:

1. An education.

2. A house.

Keep driving the Vette and keep thanking Mr. Nash.

As soon as you start making "mods" to a MB its value goes down the drain. I would, as suggested "keep the vette"

Well, assuming the link in the footer of his posts is meaningful, his employer builds caravans near Brisbane, on the Gold Coast of Australia.

In another post he says he already owns a BMW and needs to know where to have his radio worked on..huh?

All of his few posts seem to raise a small red flag..

Is he a sincere poster with language skill challenges or a jokester...? You decide...
