1. It's a car for a woman. 2.3l engine is not for men.
2. The color is blah. Buy it if you want to blend in with the masses. Sure silver is great for not showing dirt, but so what !
3. Buying the entry level of any model is the true sign of a wanna-be. Hold out until you can find/afford the CLK320 or CLK430 if you really want a CLK.
4. Your wife won't kill you, she'll probably just take the car (see #1 above)
