A supercharged cl55 from 2003-2006 is an awesome car . Once I got rid of my 560sec I picked up a 2002 cl500 (for $3000 less than I sold my sec for ) and it is a far superior driving experience . The cl55 is that much more awesome

Sorry to hear about your accident, Mike. I remember you calling me when I got my first W126 and reassuring me about some simple issues I was having. I was so ignorant then and have learned quite a lot after finally dismantling that car. You got a lot of enjoyment out of it and were deep into the details which helped everyone. You helped build a sense of community with a touch of drama, haha, into benzworld and it was welcome. Your enthusiasm for the marque and the chassis emanated through these forums. I hope you'll continue to post and contribute even if you do decide to switch marques. Our classic machines are fleeting as well as ourselves. Enjoy it while you can.

Mike, you will look like a "baller" in a Bentley for sure. Enjoy the new journey and search for your new ride.

CL55 would make a better car than the Bentley, by all accounts. Never driven a CL but I know someone who had that model and a Continental, & guess which one he sold ? (Clue, it was the Bentley.)
Anyway, pretty cool you have this kind of choice to make.

Ps, that targa Bentley, that is so weird, no?

Maybe a CL, IDK?

Yeah, that Targa Bentley IS weird, but that's why I included it.

Going to take my time. New job first and then it will depend on where I end up.

And I know of PLENTY of nightmare stories with CL and Benzes in general. 126's included! (Timing chain guides!)

Here's another thing too: When the Bentley Continental was introduced at the Geneva auto show, it blew away the Mercedes S class, and if I'm going to replace my SEC with something, it should be that car.
