Time for a new car! CLS63 or a BMW

So my lease is over in about six months and I cant decide what car I want to get. I love BMWs but I dont know if I want to buy another one.

Anyone on the post have a cls55/63? How do you like it? Is it a rought ride or is it smooth? Also would it be worth picking up a used one?

I dont want to wait for the new 5 series, 6 series wouldn't work for me. Should I buy another 335?

So which would you pick 2010 335 coupe or used 2008 CLS63.

The merc will be a very "smooth" ride, although "cushy" may be a better word. Even the AMG models still feel somewhat disconnected. My advice is TEST DRIVE the CLS63 before you buy it. It is definitely a good car, but only you can be sure if it is right for you...

not really an apples to apples comparison since that Merc is about $30K more expensive, but if price is no object here, then definitely the CLS

I have a 55, and its a great car. It's s straight line highway bruiser tho.

The 55s have lots of mods that can make a bunch of power easily but the 63 is no slouch either. with bolt ons, theyre pretty quick as well, and the engine sounds glorius!

+1 doesn't make much sense etc. Get C63 anyway if you want AMG.

How does one cross-shop between a $90k car and a $50k car?

How about an M car?

If it's used, they are both probably in the same price range. AMGs don't hold their value well at all.

Im looking for a used cls in the 50k range, and a new 335i is about that price. But then again I can go with a 4 door m3. I know for sure I want something smoother just because I cant take long trips with the Bimmer without walking away with a backache.

do i even have to answer this

I drive an E63 on a daily basis (same chassis) and its a 5 star car. 2 tons and hits 60 in 4.2. what more could you want

CLS55s are faster and I think you'd enjoy how it drives better haven driven an E55 too. More low end power and it feels lighter. Cosmetically, its not as good.
So what are you driving when you're not using your parents E63

Guy down the street from me owns a CLS63 in white. SOOOOOOOO sexy. It makes me drool looking at it. And I can hear him inside my house when he drives by. The exhaust is extremely deep but not too loud when cruising by at low rpms. And when he revs it higher, it sounds amazing.

I wish I had a V8.
