I hope I have not been silly. Was going to wait for a year, finish paying off my loan then buy a newish CLK convertible. With used values so cheap for a tin top we decided to buy now. The car is a champagne CLK320 (2003) with 35k on the clock and loaded with extras. I had a 2003 ML500 back in 2007, the only faults were a sticking accelerator cable and the TV on the comand would not work, it was much better than people gave them credit for. I stay near Perth in Scotland.
