    Problem is I would REALLY LIKE 5 seats. The other problem is my current mk4 golf is a real gem with ALL the extras you can think of including heated leather interior, climate control, cruise control etc. but having been in mercs for the last few years, I just can't move on. What to do?

    What Golf do you have?, I don't like my 1.6 Auto at all, wish I had got a nice TDI 150 instead.

    I have recently bought a W208 CLK having previously run an Audi A4 estate. The CLK being a four seater was a concern at first but it hasn't really been a problem so far and I certainly don't regret the change.

    I have a year 200 1.6 16v manual, but with all the extras its basically a gti with a smaller engine!

    Would love a clk convertible but couldn't afford to run a v8!

    I've got a 1.6 8v Auto, combination of an underpowered engine and a rubbish auto box make it not that pleasant to drive, I only got it because of the very low miles for the year, going to sell it for a Range Rover Classic very soon I think.
    If you want a CLK cabriolet, go for the 230 kompressor engine, I used to have a coupe one and it was powerful enough and pretty good on fuel.

    I've gone from a 55 plate Astra 1.6 5dr to a V plate CLK 320 w208 and I'm loving it.

    My Astra was also fully fitted and retro fitted with full Irmscher kit, suspension etc, but the CLK is by far a much better machine. Obviously the fuel gauge drops a lot quicker in the CLK but I simply love the way it drives and the noise is fantastic.

    I also have a better half and two kiddies and don't miss the third seat in the back at all.

    How good are the 230k engines on fuel in the real world. I have heard mixed views on this.

    The reason why I would like 5 seats is that I have to take my mum out with my family at times.

    Unit504- I have already contacted you about your car, its beautiful but I really want a facelift avantgarde spec. And prefer coupe for insurance purposes.

    I used to have a range rover. Not the classic one but a p38. Loved it!
