    e320 cdi and v6

    Think you will find the V6 is the later engine of the two. I have the V6 in a CLS and have found it very good. Returned approx 33 mpg over 26000 miles. Hope this helps

    CLK500 5 or 7 speed auto

    Sorry mileage wise I think its 4 years / 60000. I may be wrong on this one though. Mine were replaced on age. Also remember you have things like brake fluid every 2 years. So when buying a 4 year old car its worth checking that these have been done. Or negotiate the price accordingly

    CLK500 5 or 7 speed auto

    IIRC about £10 per plug x 16 £160 plus labour. So at main dealer rates £300 - £400. I had our car on a service contract and paid about £90 per month for 18000 miles per year

    CLK500 5 or 7 speed auto

    I had a CLK 500 for 2 years and averaged 26 mpg over 45000 miles. 7 speed box had to be reset once under warranty for jerky change down from 2 to 1. This you only really see if you use the car in S mode. Can be quite hard on tyres, mine would wear edges first regardless of tyres pressures...

    Which tyres?

    Used to get between 15 - 18k on the fronts of our CLK500. Did have a tendancy to wear the edges though.

    The Brilliance That Is: Wonder Wheels

    I use wonder wheels all the time but dilute it to about 30% solution then rinse off with pressure washer and it works fine. Only use full strength if wheels are very dirty and caked with brake dust

    SLK 55 AMG *advice*

    I know that MB have variable service intervals so this is only a question that would it be right on an AMG to have had only 2 services since 2005? When your next service is due I think it will be a big one as it may include the spark plug change which is pricey at the main dealers.
