WE have a 2000 CLK320. Runs great, Fast!
But there are a few electrical problems.
LCD's in the cluster are nonfunctioning, SRS light stays on intermittently, Seat controls keep blowing the fuse.

Indeed awesome sound! Our 300E sounds like that when I letta rip. Makes the 5mpg while doing it so worth it!

It will be a tough call when I get my next car in the future if I want a M103 W126 or another diesel.....we'll see.

Elton John rocks!

Nothing wrong with going fast when its cold out....there didn't appear to be any snow.....

If you're set on an M103, try a 300E. More modern chassis and lighter, so better performance and MPG. Plus, the posibility of a 5-speed, without going grey-market.

Happy Motoring, Mark
