I got the CLK350 coupe. It is a very strong performing car. The build quality is superb. Very quiet inside even with the windows down. Only disappointments are that there is only one power outlet upfront. The convenience feature where you are supposed to be able to roll all the windows down as well as open the sunroof with the key and reverse it only works sporadically. And the garage door buttons on the rear view mirror mean that I'm always having to readjust it. But I'd still buy it again. But next time I'm opting for the convertible :)
If you are over 40 you remember the song Born Free! This car just makes you feel like you are as free as the wind blows. The size is perfect for 1-2 adults of average size comfortably (with luggage in the back seat. The truck (with the covertible storage bin) is very tight but just right for the cooler :-) The colors I've seen are nice because they are subtle. When the top is down we don't need anymore staring eyes-it draws lots of attention.
After the first 30 days it's still as exciting as it was on the first night! I love it and feel like every drive is a vacation.
I'm hoping it will be my last car. That is if I dont ware out the top!
