Default CLK500 on ebay

item number 190605440485

Interesting car and a very complete service history.

One of the invoices from 2008 appears to show it had a new rad and work to the transmission, presumably Valeo rad failure, considering the car was only 5 years old and with 19k miles at the time was the invoice paid i wonder or would that have been a goodwill 'please have this on us' bill?.

Whats the panel's thoughts on this car?

It's a nice area where the original owner came from.

I thought Parktronic would be standard on a CL500?

Personally I would prefer an interior with a bit on contrast, the grey leather is nice but the aluminium(?) trim is a bit 'samey'. A nice wood, perhaps BEM or Piano black

Did anyone notice the invoice for the radiator and torque converter (i think), surely that would have been goodwill at such low mileage, or is that wishful thinking.

I like the interior, particularly the 2 tone leather, well its nice in the pics but that can be deceiving.

Are CLK's of this vintage particularly bad for rust?
