Mercedes Benz CLK 55 AMG Convertible

The Mercedes-Benz W209 cars have been produced since 2002. They are sold under the CLK-Class model names. The W209 is based on the W203 C-Class. It replaced the C208 CLK-Class after 2004 which were the first car to carry the CLK moniker. The W209 is available in two body styles, a coupe and a cabriolet, and is manufactured with diesel and petrol engines ranging from four cylinder (CLK200) to eight cylinder (CLK500 and CLK63AMG). The cabriolet (Designated with an A, as in CLK500A) features a fully automatic retractable soft top covered by a metal tonneau that can be raised and lowered from outside the vehicle using the key fob. A W209 CLK 63 AMG DTM "Black Series" was produced as a MY2006 in both a coupe and later cabriolet model. Styling cues were taken from the full race car version for the German Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters racing series. The car includes a wider body, carbon fiber accents, and upgraded suspension. The CLK is designed to fill the mid-luxury market position for coupes and convertibles. It is Mercedes-Benz's only 4-seat cabriolet. Its direct competitors in the cabriolet market are the Volvo C70 and the Lexus SC430, although it is available with larger engines than any of its direct competitors. The CLK is positioned midway between the BMW 3 series coupe/cabriolet and the 6 series coupe/cabriolet. The CLK is a superlative vehicle whose handling is exceptionally precise even under extreme cornering, road, and weather conditions, and whose performance is equal to the fastest readily available sports cars on the market. Performance is electronically limited to 135mph in the CLK350 and CLK500 models, and to 155mph in the CLK55 model. An AMG factory option is available for an unrestricted top speed. The Electronic Stability Control (ESP) and Anti-lock braking system (ABS) are both excellent aids to handling, making such feats as a 90' degree turn on a typical two lane intersection from 50mph possible using simple hard braking and turning with no significant fishtailing. Although the ESP system can be manually turned off, it never actually allows the wheels to spin completely freely. For example, the ESP system makes drifting (intentional high-power fishtailing) impossible without shutting the ESP system off using a factory test protocol that end-users cannot enable. Each model seats four and in the US this includes an all-leather interior with burl walnut trim. For Europe the models are available as "Elegance" or "Avantgarde" versions, basically Luxury or Sport specification where the Elegance uses Burr Walnut trim and polished alloy wheels the Avantgarde uses alloy trim and chunky wheels. The price and specification for European models is otherwise the same. The 4 cyl. cars wear 16" wheels While the CLK320, CLK350 and CLK500 come with 17 inch (432 mm) alloy wheels, the CLK55 AMG sports 18 inch (457 mm) wheels. The cabriolets have a remote-operated automatic soft-top and sensor-controlled roll bars. Since 2000, all US cars come standard with a Tele Aid emergency assistance system, automatic dual-zone air conditioning, 10-way power front seats and rain-sensing windshield wipers. Seven-channel digital surround sound comes standard. A Keyless Go system, navigation system, Parktronic system, and bi-xenon HID headlamps are all available as options. All models come with four side airbags.European cars differ considerably and are usually specced depending on the buyer's needs. The cars have a manual sport/comfort mode switch that sets the transmission to start in 2nd gear and shift earlier in comfort mode. The new 7-speed transmission ads about 20% better fuel mileage in real driving conditions over the 5-speed with no loss in performance, although the additional shifting can be noticeable. In the CLK500, at 80mph, the 5-speed transmission runs at about 3000rpm, while the 7-speed runs at about 2200rpm. Both transmissions include automatic best gear finding so that the driver need not keep track of which gear the car is in during performance driving, and in the AMG model, the transmission can be set to stay in the highest possible gear for the best possible performance. The 5-speed CLK500 gets an average of 15mpg in real city driving conditions, whereas the 7-speed CLK500 get an average of about 18mpg under the same conditions. Both add about 3mpg for highway driving. The W209 CLK-Class is 2.4 inches (61 mm) longer, 0.7 inches (18 mm) wider and 1.1 inch (28 mm) higher than its predecessor. In Europe there was also the CLK 200 K (1.8 R4), CLK 220 CDI (2.1 R4 diesel), CLK 240 (2.6 V6), CLK 270 CDI (2.7 R5 diesel), CLK 280 (3.0 V6), CLK 320 CDI (3.0 V6 diesel); (all standard with 6-speed manual transmission, automatic transmission is optional) 2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG cabriolet 2004 Mercedes-Benz CLK55 AMG cabriolet.

2014 Mercedes E550 Cabriolet Test Drive & Luxury Convertible Car Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/mercedes-benz/e-class/2014/?id=32972 With the Mercedes E550 Cabriolet you get impeccable German engineering and super high quality materials. This is a fantastic touring machine in its own rite. A base E-Series car starts at $51,400 and the E550 Cabriolet tested here starts at $67,300 but the price can balloon with additional added packages and options. The engine powering the E550 Convertible is a twin-turbo 4.7 liter V-8 that makes 402 horsepower and 443 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy figures are 17 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. The great thing about this engine is a large torque curve. All that power and torque are necessary though as the E550 Cabriolet weighs a hefty 4048 lbs. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E550 Cabriolet has a couple of great features to improve comfort of the passenger. The first is a system called AIRCAP which is essentially a spoiler on top of the windshield and a deflector behind the rear seats. These 2 automated parts work together to push the air flow p and over the passenger compartment minimizing wind. The second feature is the AIRSCRAF system which is a set of vents integrated into the head rests. These vents produce warm or cool air for the drive and front passenger. The Mercedes E550 Cabriolet has a split personality. You can drive the car in ECO or Comfort mode which makes the car loft around on the roads. But switch the dial to Sport and the entire car wakes up and performs brilliantly.

Xtrons TD712G - Fitting into Mercedes CLK - My Xtrons Hell...
Its absolute rubbish. 45w per channel? Its less than half that, at best. The onboard GPS device constantly needs resetting. You just cant jump in your car, pop in a postcode (TomTom only has 4 digit postcodes, so wont get you anywhere useful unless you pop in the full street name etc). This unit will sit and wait and reset and wait and poweroff and reset... Then your driving along and bam! Satnav kicks in when it feels like it. I have driven over 80miles before it decided to find a signal. Its been fun to use for a few days, but its going to be r-i-p-p-e-d out of my car this weekend and replaced with an Alpine unit. Then, I am gonna stick a screwdriver through its screen and send it back. There is no issue with TomTom itself, the software has been great, but the onboard GPS device keeps spazzing out every 5mins. This unit is just like all the other cheap double din rubbish on the market, but with much better advertising. I really desperately wanted an Xtrons after seeing the videos on youtube etc but mine is flawed. I havent heard such a quiet HiFi since I drove a Daewoo Lanos years ago. The Xtrons cant even give a good signal to my AMP/SUB so no sub woofers... Even changing the cables didnt make any difference. My Xtrons gets HOT. I mean, really hot. The back of the screen isnt warm to the touch its baking hot! Eject a disk or SD card and you'll think "this is way too hot, how does this unit not destroy everything that goes into it". Radio signal is awful. The screen has a mind of its own, press a Photo icon and the screen starts to open, then you have to go into Settings to close the screen. Driving on a slightly rough road sends the Xtrons Super Anti-Shock into a spin and the disk loads and reloads. I am driving a Mercedes, my cars smooth as slik, one little jolt and my Xtrons keels over. Disappointed with this unit big time. Its cheap built, noisy mechanisms inside, quiet audio, invisible buttons on the screen that do weird things, GPS device reset all day long, it runs super hot, the screen colours can vary during DVD playback, GPS reception is poor, the touch screen moves around inside the front facia, Xtrons themselves dont care - Wheres my warranty? Best I could get out of some bloke at Xtrons was "so what..." Their site says "We will replace any faulty items should there be one within 7 days from purchase". So, not a 12 month warranty then... Explains why the chap from Xtrons was so rude to me on the phone. Please dont waste you money on these Chinese head units, I saw older versions and some 2009 Chinese Double Din head units in peoples cars and assured myself Xtrons would be the best of the bunch. Its not, its exactly the same junk. I am sure some of you will love the fact they are cheap and offer so many features. Thing is, if the main features of these units dont work well, whats the point in them? The TomTom software and iGo8 and Route66 both suffer from the onboard GPS devices constant resetting. I am not going to fork out a grand on a head unit from a branded manufacturer either. Better I just stick with a 'Real TomTom' and leave the car's HiFI to play music. Plus touch screen HiFis take your eye off the road. I am a driver, I want booming audio and the ability to change tracks without touching a screen to bring up a menu, then looking for a tiny marker button to swap tracks. Which is right above the on screen eject button, bad ergonomic design guys Seems all these units are made by one manufacturer, then rebranded, they build an entire series per production run and made minor changes to the facia and TV or GPS cards. So, if mines faulty, then yours is bound to have some issues too. Glad I am not alone... Alpine... Save me from this Xtrons Hell !
