Well, after reading the other reviews
I've concluded that my CLK430 must be
an exception. I have taken the car
back to the dealership for work on the
headlights (1x), windows (2x), ABS
light (1x), CD player (2x), and most
repeatedly, the front bumper/molding
(5x). MB should be ashamed of the
design for the front bumper of this
car. The molding around the fog lamps
pops off with even slight contact with
a parking bumper. While I will agree
the car is peppy and having the top
down is WONDERFUL, every drive has be
overshadowed with the worry of, "what
new is going to happen today?"
The V8 pep, the ease of the top
Obviously, the front bumper, the
electric window control/motor, more
luxury in the spartan cabin, better
I do so AGREE with you about that front bumper/spoiler. ANY contact with a normal parking cement stop is a NIGHTMARE. DON't get NEAR them, as they are the right exact height to "catch" the front spoiler/bumper and ruin the front low bumper/spoiler.
WHAT were they thinking? In Germany are there no parking "stop" or dips in the road? I can't recall..when I went I was on a tour bus!!!!
I ONLY use mine for short trips "out" with the top down. ONLY love it because it's a convertible, sharp, flashy, sassy and grips the road...albeit a bit "too" much so the ride is tad bumpy-must be those LOW profile tires and chrome rims!!!!
