[}:)]I owned one and other than the electronic gremlins was a fairly good car. I am not sure that the added value for the additional cost was worth it but you do get the "rarity" of the AMG which is becoming less rare every year.

I'm paying $32,400 and trading mine a 2001 CLK 430 54K Miles for $26000 with tax credit will be getting around $ 28,000.

They're putting on new tires front rotors and pads.

The vehicle is also lowered with H&R Springs.

Trasfering the grill to the new CLK.

Will post pics when it stops snowing.

You gain 10K miles, a year newer, and a faster engine for few thousands, not to mention other stuffs they added on. That's a good deal!

I suggest owners of the CLK 430 dont sit in the 55 AMG and drive them.

When you get back in the CLK430 its not the same.


I test drive a CLK 55 AMG about 3 months ago and finally said to my self I got to have it.

You've piqued my interest, how much faster does the 55 feel compared to the 430? I love the way the 430 pushes you into the seat, I can't imagine the rush of the 55. the 0-60 time isn't that much faster though is it?

Big difference my friend!

To answer your question...

Yea, you'll feel a bit of Gs when moving off from a standstill in the 430, but in the 55, it's a whole other story.

My very first time I stepped on it, to be honest, I then realized why they called it the beast.

If you get a chance, test drive one say at a dealership, and I bet you too will be sold. If you are ever in SoFl
pm me and we'll hookup so you can experience it for yourself.

ChiClk is right about driving one and then going back to
your 430...it just doesn't quite feel the same.

I can't imagine how the E55 is....that's my next car. The Caddy STS V is of similiar performance and a lot less $ and it is said to drive pretty firm. Anyway
that's about 3-4 years away.

Very well put.

I take long routes home just to drive it more, you just cant get enough.

Just got a 02 clk55. I still own my 99/430(in the process of selling). Just drive a 55 and you will appreciate why the added cost. I have had to watch my foot constantly because it is over 100 before I know it. I got a nice deal on the new car..16,500 miles...clean as a whistle...clean carfax...no front sandblasted pits...I'm in love again!
