I've had a hankering for a Sunday car ever since I sold my SL, which was the car I most regret selling. I looked at BMW Z4s and sat in a few older ones and quite liked them.... until I tried to get in and out with the roof up !!! So, as I'm too tall and fat to fit a Z4, after briefly looking at 3 series and Audi A4s I have turned my attention to a CLK convertible. The car will only be used on dry days for roadtrips and the likes. I am swaying between ultra-high miles pre facelift models and newer, rather more expensive, cars. I used to own a w211 which I took from delivery miles to 120k over 6 years and it wore the miles well, can the same be said for the w209? Any tales of woe or of blissful times with your CLK ? I've budgeted £4.5k but that crept up quickly to £7k and back down again, there are a few cars out there in that price range which I will start to look at more seriously once work permits.
