Hello all this is my first post in the forum.

I have been able to save some cash and finally buy a long dream of mine a CLS. I am not really good at techinal expertise,

From my basic understanding it's the same 6 cylinder engine just mapped a bit differently.

Cash difference is not that big as well. What engine would you guys recommend for me to get the 350d or 400d? Which one would you say will last longer in the long term and which is more reliable?

Thank you!

E400d is a beast of a car. I remember reading a review of it somewhere and they said, "in the real world you don't need a car any faster than an E400d". If I had the choice it would be the 400d, surely it must be less stressed with all that torque.

My daughter has just sold her GLC 400d , the engine was very powerful and very smooth could out drag most things apparently. Unfortunately I never got to drive it to compare it with my SLK55

Is there any significant VED difference between the two ?
