An Authorized Dealer offered me a :

1999 CLK430 Coupe Silver
43K Miles, Moonroof, CD, AMG Rims
1 Year Starmark Component Warranty
$30K Good Deal?

Add 1 Grand to get two more years Starmark Component Warranty (Total of Three Years).
Six Hundred to add a LoJack.

I wanted a 2000 CLK320 but all dealers wants $30~32K, how is the 99-430 vs 00-320 ?

Please Advice.

A good deal!!

I just sold my '99 CLK for 30K with 33K miles and no warranty. If you can get it Starmarked-Go for it!
I've never driven the 320 but I can tell you the 430 is a fun car to drive. A good dealer will let you take your choice of cars out for test drives. Enjoy!!

I test drove a CLK 320 when I was shopping for my car.

Now take this for what it's worth, as I was driving a '98 M3 at the time: I found the car to be way too underpowered for my tastes. On the highway it was a fine cruiser, but the torque was quite lacking to me. Also found the stock suspecnsion to be way too soft for a sport coupe.

Personally if I were choosing between the two, I'd go for the 430.

I test drove both a 2000 320 and a 1999 430 before I purchased my 430. Overall I preferred my 99 430. The only thing I missed out on were the mirror signal lights and the steering wheel with radio controls which came in only 2000 + model years. Those are things you can change later on. It's not as easy to make a 320 look like a 430. I am very happy with my choice. Good Luck!
