All The Style And Performance One Needs. — This car has been a joy to own. After 10 years, and 60,000 miles it still looks and feels like a new car. It still turns heads, and people assume it is a very expensive car. For the most part, with the exception of a replaced electronic instrument cluster on the dash, the car has been very reliable. It is at its best on a mountain highway.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Style is timeless.

Cons: Repairs can be expensive.

Love It..feels Good To Drive — This is my second Mercesdes that I have owned and by far the most fun and exhilarating experience I have had by far. I always look forward to driving this car, not to mention the attention that it invites. I think this particular model has one of the more authentic and distinctive Mercedes look.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Gorgeous apparence smooth ride great power.

Cons: Expensive to maintain

Very Fast Car That Will Abuse A Bmw M, But Make Sure You Have The Money To Feed This Beast. — Pros: One of the fastest factory two-door (coupe) ever imported in the United States at the time. The 2003 CL AMG is by far the best year to own a CL AMG. Not only were these cars "ungoverned", but the interior still beats that of a 2012 CL 63 AMG. The car is for the driving enthusiast. If you find a used 2003 CL 55 AMG - jump on it! Cons: this car will set you back around $19 grand to replace a computer chip. Repairing this car is the worst. If you don't have money to feed this beast, stay clear away from her.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Power, speed, the shocks, interior.

Cons: Price to maintain, parts and repairs are murder.

I Love It. — I love this car. Only 35,000 miles on it. Like new. I've had many nice, expensive, fast cars. This the greatest piece of machinery I have ever known. I never thought anything would top my BMW 6 series but this definitely takes the cake.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Fast. Sexy & fun to drive.

Cons: Gas mileage sucks when u are having fun. But if u drive Ms. Daisy then not so bad

500hp Supercharged V8 And Every Luxury You Could Want — The 500HP Supercharged V8 has a pretty unique sound from the stock exhaust and from what people tell me the motor itself is pretty much bullet proof sans the inter-cooler which some times goes out but so far no major issues Most cars with this kind of performance sacrifice comfort and amenities but thing has every luxury known to man without loosing it's sporty feel

Pros: The chirp when the supercharger kicks in

Cons: Can't think of any

This Automobile Is An Awesome Ride! — The AMG CL55 is rated at 4.7 0-60 however I am beating that with my 2003. Braking is great and handling is pretty good. My 2003 only has 35k miles and haven't had any problems. I do have 3 yr warranty. The styling is very aggressive and I get about 15 mpg.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Appearance, exhaust is real mean..

Cons: MPG, not a snow car

A Fun Car For Use During Good Weather — like: twin turbo v12 engine; most powerful car I've owned dislike: the car is dangerously powerful (500 horses) & needs all wheel drive; too much power and too little traction (can spin wheels in 3rd gear) cost of ownership: avoid if you don't know a good mechanic or do not have some kind of supplemental warranty coverage (extended warranty is a must on any Euro car)

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: acceleration

Cons: not driveable in snow
