Pros: Not power, but seat of your power. Looks to make wife jealous

Cons: stopped making them in the 208 style

I have never an opinion on this site. I here looking for info on car and got so much out of what I read, I obliged to return the favor. Out of over 2 dozen cars I owned that I could about, including Ferrari, Martin, BMW, Jaguar and my choice for a first try was clear, a car for my favorite of all time (with the Z3 style), and what I consider the all around car I have ever My 2001 CLK55.

I bought a brand new back in 2000. At the I also had a 2000 BMW M5, which I unappealing and dull lookswise. Now I loved the CLK. She was a real and her interior ergos were the I had ever seen. She became my practical car to date (displacing a Honda Accord LXi that had tops in that department for 10 years and had maintained that over 2 Mercedes and 4 BMW’s as of But I wanted the CLK430 to have the of the M5. Yet I wanted the M5 to have the looks and of the CLK (hence why I had two practical cars). My to mate them failed so I up and moved on. Then I decided to buy a Ahh, there you have it, an M5 in CLK or a CLK with an M5’s soul. way, what I found in my CLK430, power and suspension, my had with room to spare.


To me, this is the GOAT She comfortably fits 4. She is stealthy yet The 208 body style is so much appealing to me over the 209. IMHO, is the most stunning ever (save the SLR I suppose). and amazing to drive. She even good.

I love too many things this car to list. Fantastic The command navigation works Better than the one in my M5 did. fully adjustable seats air lumbar adjustments, everything I want it, a useful computer on the cluster that tells you you could possibly want to trip miles, tank miles left on tank, economy, distance, mpg for trip, directions, even hands phone controls). All that is controlled at your finger on the steering wheel. Including the to make a telephone call by speaking.

Driving Impressions

engine note (that a lot from an Aston owner). Her delivery and performance outclasses my 420 HP Martin and my 315HP BMW M Roadster, if only slightly, but more is how she does it. Where the Aston is on its way to 80 and the M ambitious and quick and demanding of the CLK55 does it with You feel that torque. She is a 70’s muscle car. A on steroids. If this car is great 0-60 (4.9 seconds, as the Aston and M), she is indefatigueable from better than both. anyone! Giddiup! The touctronic transmission is seamless in its tick up to and downshfits fast when you passing potency. Great That classic CLK430 is less pronounced on the 55. She also great for a coupe, heck for any She is the best combination of sports car and car I have ever seen. My cars please some and not my 430 pleased some and not others, the pleases everybody. I know M3 owners always say. But I owned 3 M3’s, and this car is the car IMHO. Then again, I like spinning the

wheels from a stop and out the back some times. is a muscle car for the tidy business I know the 209 body now has a CLK63 and all with 475bhp, but that style is too feminine for my taste in a I love this one more.

Feel sorry for me. I have a Every 18 months or so it acts up and control of my body, forcing me my car to a dealer to put down a deposit on a new car and taking over my mind to the very car I am driving. But I have 2 CLK’s now and 3 Z3 body styles and I have one of each, the most version ever made of body style, and both are 5 old and I have NO plans to sell for many years to come. I can’t part with This from a guy who never cars for more than 2 and has bid farewell to his Ferrari, Hummer, 2 3 BMW M3’s, an M5, 2 Z3’s (never with the 3rd), and 4 Mercedes a CLK430 (never again the 2nd)and even will say to his Aston before he parts his CLK55. Sellers remorse and I am too chicken to feel it again. I pay full price for this car if I had to to get one used. She is that good, she is memorable, she is that much my


I am amazed at the current book value for W208 of the 2001-2002 vintage. I would not mine for twice the current book, which is now about $30k (as of Aug 2006). So in my opinion all of this era are a bargain. They can out brand new supercars that 2 or 3 times as much. Here are a few releases I have driven fall short in acceleration and to this car: Aston V8 Vantage, BMW M3, and even the Hertz Mustang Shelby Cobra I I think this is the best supercar bargain anywhere. New car was $80k out the door. Now you can legally them and they perform the Dependability has been great on my car at short of 50k miles.
