i wanna buy my first mercedes benz and there's a few models within my budget, i would really appreciate it if you help me pick the most reliable one since i can't afford fixing it so often.

E320 2003
clk 320 2003-2004
c230 kompressor 2005
BMW 525i 2004 ( even though i prefer mercedes, but i like this one )

Every single model and make you listed have totally unique driving dynamics.

Other than being reliable you need to let us know what the main purpose of the car will be for you on a daily basis.

In regards to budget, you also need to factor in whether you can afford the maintenance. Check out some of the vendors like autohausaz for pricing on parts you know you will need like air filters, oil filter, brake pads, rotors, spark plugs, plug wires, etc.

I can tell you it's unlikely to be the W 221. Many 1st generation new elctronic options that are very expensive to repair.
