    Depends what 911 it s.
    If its a 4s then I'll take that.
    If its a 'normal' carrera. I'd rather have the benz.

    911 and M3 have little space for baggage and people, so the Clk 55
     
  4. Re: Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG vs. Porsche 911 Carrera vs. BMW M3

    Depends on what you looking for. The CLK is more practical and luxurious well the 911 and M3 are more for sports.

    Im sorry, but i am a huge car freak, and i was just thinking are you guys crazy!!! this car does not compare to the BMW or the porche. i worked in a MB shop for awhile and the M3 is a better luxury car, that seems to offer more control and speed on the road, regardless of the #'s listed. and the porche offers speed that these 2 cars simply dont have, but lacks luxury

    The 4S slower than the 'normal' carrera.

    On another note, my order is...

    M3
    911
    CLK

    The M3 is the best bang for the buck, and on any given day can go side by side a 911, the 911 is second because its the best looking, but also the most expensive, and the CLK came last because I don't like it at all. Its not visually pleasing for myself, its too expensive, and its performance isn't all that great.

    well, its faster then the porsche and less expensive plus its more confortable and luxurious.
     
  11. Re: Mercedes-Benz CLK 55 AMG vs. Porsche 911 Carrera vs. BMW M3

    Actually no, its not faster than the Porsche. The articles that I have read also said that it isn't that smooth of a ride.

    M3 would take the CLK55 to school

    I actually own a 2003 CLK55 here in the UK and the M3 will not outaccelerate a CLK - having experimented against both an M3 and an M5 (both 2003 models) the CLK will outaccelerate the M3 from about 40 to 100 and will keep pace with the M5, I had a passenger and the M5 was driver only.
    However the CLK does have it's drawbacks - it's darn expensive and the ride is quite uncomfortable - not up to general MB standards. I considered a C4S but they were on 18 month wait time so that was out and the M3 was an even harsher ride!
    The CLK does have rear seats (short journeys only and getting in and out is a complete farce) a decent trunk/boot and drop down rear seat backs so you can live with it.
    I love the ESP system, BOSE sound and the acceleration - I hate the ride quality and speed cameras <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/sad.gif"></A>
