I love my S, but I've promised myself that when my son goes off to college in two years and we don't need 5 seats. I'm getting an 04-06 W215. I think they're beautiful...much more so than the W216.

To amuse myself in the interim I look at CL's online and drool. I have one for my desktop screensaver. I'm open to any CL in that year range. I've started working through pros and cons for the various models. It seems like the 600 is too exotic for me for a daily driver. The AMG cars are very tempting but knowing how deep the pain can be on my modest W220 when things go south, I think a CL500 with a Sport appearance package is the target.

I know that engine, and that Airmatic system. It looks like that leaves me with the ABC failure to deal with, which seems universal and inevitable. Do I just plan on an $8k repair at some point, or is there some way to hedge my bet? Is the definitive fix the updated valve block design? Thanks...
