If you had $9,000 to spend on a used Benz....

Which one would you buy and why?

I'm looking for a sexy looking V6, with reliability (no bad transmission history), and nice interior. I like the 2006-08 clk350, grey with beige interior, light grained wood steering wheel. But would love to hear some other options so I can research and test drive. This will be my first Benz. I've had a 2006 Infiniti m45, something similar in quality would be nice, minus the v-8 of course.

Thanks in advance

C class is entry level on US market and there is not much other choices.
350 engines in early years had some shaft issues, so read the forum before making final decisions.

Probably one of these 2:

99 E320, 36k miles

05 C230, 43k miles

Four wheels move the body, two wheels move the soul.
