I have been shopping (half-heartedly) for a new car for two years and I have yet to find anything that comes close to the C36 for driving enjoyment, performance, aesthetics and value. I used to own a 98 vette that had a pretty decent funrice ratio, but overall, there really aren't high performance sedans or sports cars for that matter, for less than 50,000 that compete at all with the C36 and C43. I even got into a race with an S55 and a CLK430 recently and literally walked away from them to sixty plus, and they were at least 4 years younger. I just wanted to see if anyone has any thoughts about upcoming cars that will cause me to change my mind for less than 50K. I even noticed that the 95 C36 will outsprint the brand new SL500 to sixty. This 95 I have is seven years old, going on eight. Oh by the way, it has 112K on it. Great car!
