    . . . with the CLS Class. Always liked the looks of this car but never ventured into finding out more about it due to it being WAY out of my price range . . . or so I thought.
    I was shocked to discover that this car has been around since 2006!? And are now available for around £12k

    I've found my retirement car after my R171 :D

    Love my CLS55 - was originally considering the 320 CDI, but then realised the 500's were potentially cheaper and then thought that if I'd gone for a 500 I'd always wish I'd plumped for the 55.

    So I did :)

    Do not forget that once into 06 and a 500 engine the road tax goes up to £500

    Good evening all!I have bought mine 320 -2008 model 2 weeks ago.I have px my lovely slk230 because a third member in our family is on his/her way!:)
    I have to say that I am amazed with this car .Very cool, well made,amazing torque, much better economy ! Its natural environment is the highway but I was surprised how good it is on narrow b roads,actually It felt more nibble than the SLK. If you are over 6 ft like me don't sit in the back you wont enjoy it!Sit in the front plenty of space!
    Parking needs attention though so parking sensors are a must!I don't have to tell you that I am looking forward every day to drive it, and that for me that says everything!
    I wish to get yours soon and I am sure you are going to enjoy it!

    My CL 216 runs out this month, my CL420 runs out this month and next month I am taxing the V70R again so just just £1k for the 3:shock: But I cant take it with me, so who cares as there is nothing I can do about it:(
