I have owned several high performance
cars including 2 BMW's. The CLK500
is, without a doubt, the best car I
have ever driven - and I loved the
Bimmers. It looks beautiful (I get
compliments from strangers all the
time), and it drives even better. The
engine's performance is thrilling and
the handling is superb. It is
absolutely a thrill to drive. A
friend of mine traded his brand new
E500 for a CLK500 after riding in
mine! Its also much more practical
than the SL series or the SLK, because
it has a functional back seat (I have
two young teens to haul around),
although not very good for long trips.
Looks and performance.
The GPS is a bit clumsy to use, but
that's typical of these systems in any
car. Could be voice activated.
