FWIW I have a 2001 CLK 320 Cab. THAT is the most beautiful car ever... :-)
More importantly, no big issues, despite the many short journeys.
To reply directly replace 'nospam' with 'schmetterling'
I had a 03 CLK320. Loved it -- great car. The only problems were a
switch malfunctioned which then disabled the ABS and traction/
stability control; fixed quickly at dealer.
The seats are a little hard compared to those in the sedans, and the
door panels are a little plain. But one of the most beautiful cars
