I Love This Car

2000 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK430 2dr Coupe
I'll never need another car. I've had this car for years, and never thought I'd like any car this much. I look at other cars, and aside from the CLK55, there is nothing else interesting, including the new body style with the flattened out belt line! Mine just turned over 120k (100k under my foot) and still runs like the day I bought it. I've never babied it, and it consistently performs. Mine's magma red, and when my friends call me snooty, I just tell them it's a Camaro SS for the over 40 set. They're just jealous. You should buy one, too!
Color, great performance, 23 mpg average. Best feature: even my wife likes it!
Traction control (ESP) could be more enthusiast-oriented. Turning it off lights up an annoying indicator, and maybe it's coincidence, but I often get ABS error lights afterwards. They go off by themselves, but sometimes I feel like its computer's programed to discourage performance driving.
