I feel the need for a V8 in my life and never having owned a Mercedes, note that 430CLK convertibles seem to be available now in my (low) price range. One in particular I like the look of is for sale with full history (apparently) and 6 months MoT with (apparently) no advisories. However, the recorded mileage for this 2001 model is 150,000. Bearing in mind that my annual mileage is likely to be no more than 5-6,000, should I look to spending a bit more for a lower mileage model or is this type of car capable of coping with high(ish) mileage. Just as a guide, my preference is for a car that has been properly used and looked after rather than one that has sat around being polished. My 1996 MGF with 99,000 recorded is excellent; my 1975 Triumph with only 56,000 recorded is problematical. I would be interested in the thought sof those who know the model and thank you for your time.
