    That one
    Hello and welcome to the forum Phil.

    In this country at least, there is no 4 wheel drive CLK. The switchable might mean the gearbox, between Winter & Summer. (W & S)

    Hi Phil,

    I'm pretty sure they never made a 4-matic CLK.

    Most MB-manual gearboxes aren't the best to be honest, so it's well worth trying one of the auto-box models - they're much nicer to drive and just as quick in the real world.

    What's your budget? The difference in price/running costs between 230K/320/430 is minimal, and the larger engined models tend to be better specced - so might be worth considering :)

    Will

    That's just a normal CLK320.

    A pre-facelift one, RWD with auto gearbox.

    Looks a bit tatty to be honest, the grille is in poor taste too (not original)

    That colour is rare though, I've only seen two other CLKs in that colour in the last couple of years (it is known as Yellowstone, more often seen on SLKs)

    I think you could find a better example easily :)

    Will
