Well.. its that time of life again.. My Bro Jake got shit bored with his previous junker so he went ahead and bought himself a CLK 55 AMG..
MSRP of this car is $112,000 Canadian Dollars, but with the help of my father we managed to get his ride down to 99,999.00. The car is great, but i still love my lovely M3... BMW for life... but Mercedes isnt a bad investment :P
Anyone elses family members / friends got Mercedes instead of BMW ? :P Post pics or comments...

The merc will loose both in straight and on twisties, (CLK 55 AMG does 0-60 in 5 secs). Also merc is all about luxury, those cars ride smooth and nice, you have a messaging seatr, which cools or heats up (i think its optional but still crazy luxury)
first off idont concider mercedes to be a german car since it isowned by daimler chrysler
i have both and e500 and a 545i smg Which i love but i would for sure 100000000% take the 5 series over the e500 when i drive the e500 at 80 the car is like a monster like a mustan gor something u cant take a turn at more than 80-90 MPH on the free way NO f!cking way but the 545 u can go at least 110 with no worries of the back end sliding out or whatever ok so in mY opinion a an mercedes can never beat a BMW without its supercharger or its twin turbo v12 bmw is just pure motor no turbo no superchager all MOTOR POWER from a smaller engine like my 545 has 325 hp from a 4.4L but the e500 has 300 out of a 5.0L and dotn even talk to me bout torque ok torques definition in adictionanry is BMW

I like some MBZ's but not the CLK, I certainly wouldn't complain with an E55, SL55, SL600, S600, or S55....Also my favorite SUV is the G class MBZ.
The only ones of those I would choose over a BMW is the G class, but I still like em. The S class vs. 7 series would be a tough one as well, I like most things about the Bimmer better but its hard to look the other way when you start talking about the power the new S class has.
