I just recently purchased my CLK 500. When I test drove the car, I looked for power, quietness with the top up, and overall enjoyment to drive. This car is fun to drive. I've owned Porsches, Audis, and Range Rovers. This is my first Mercedes. This is definitely as fun and as comfortable to drive. I'm still getting used to the amazing power off the line. It is also a very quiet ride with the top up. Other convertibles we test drove, were quite noisy. I'm very pleased with this vehicle. She's a beauty!
Body style, ease of ingress and egress, comfortable interior. Love the solid feel of the car. Large enough backseat that it is functional.
Cupholders! There is only one, and it is a rather far reach for the driver. There is no cupholder for passengers. This rather supprised me. But as I reflect back on my other Euro.cars, they all have been one cup holder short. Passengers will just have to hold on to their own.
