Looking to replace my CLS55 with a newer C218 CLS350 or a CLS500 which are pretty rare. Just wondering if the 4.7 V8 is worth an extra £5k and probably 6 months of searching for the right one? Lots of toys to play with of course and it's a V8 but I could buy a 350 tomorrow as there are plenty of them about.

Don't fancy the 63? Logical change?

Not within budget unfortunately! A reasonable CLS350 is about £16k, a 500 £21k and a 63 £27k.

Do what im doing and wait a couple of years, then get a facelifted '63 - they look amazing with the new headlights.

Go for a cls350 then... a more than ample car to use until the cls63 comes along

That's what I'm thinking. Does anyone have a link or list of options etc for the C218?
