    Looks pretty tidy and you can't beat a V8! Nice one.

    Cheers,

    Will you bring it to the next GTG Boyd?

    Are you selling up too?

    BTW - your steering wheel is upside down...

    I agree, I've tortured myself into not buying a CLK430 cabriolet just down the road from me for less than £2,500...

    Great car you've got there Boyd, looks a straight motor, a set of 18" Monoblocks would look very good on it.

    Lovely looking car. My CLK320 was amazing over the 6 years I had it. Miss it, may have another one day!

    Nice straight car by the looks of that well done good purchase. I still love my clk 6 years on still puts a big grin on my face every time I drive it but even though it now has the same power as a V8 I sometimes wish I had bitten the bullet and got the V8 Instead But Then I wouldnt Have The Manual Box, Choices :doh:
