Just pondering a swap of my E500 Coupe (207) for a CL500 (216).

Budget dictates the W216 would be an M273 5.5 engined car.

Has anyone driven both models and would care to give a comparison?

I really like the E500, it's in a relatively light chassis and thus quick. Pretty good on fuel for what it is, too.

The CL is a heavier car, so I'll lose a little in regard to fuel and performance but I just love the look of it and imagine it will be far more refined...I do miss Airmatic from my W211 E500.
