2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class CLK350 2dr Coupe (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
This is my 3rd Mercedes ('98 C230, '02 C320) and the best car I've ever owned, besting 4 BMW's, a SAAB and a Volvo. It is extremely comfortable, especially with the Comfort Package seats. Controls, while still over-engineered, are easier to use than the '02 C320. Handling is great, and performance is just fine. $7,000 for the V-8 is a waste of money.
Satellite radio, comfort package seats, new DOHC V-6.
I would pay a $1,000 more for the controls from my 1998 C230. How about a "Classic" option with no electronic set-ups, Mercedes?
