Kareem - Pre owned import CLK 320 is a sensational drive. Even though I wanted to buy a CLK55 AMG, the 320 gets the job done. It may have two fewer cylinders, but it’s still quick. I’m considering to export the car back to my home country when I leave the UAE. Pros: Options and engine. Cons: Price in higher trim.
Badar - Used CLK 250, great car for Dubai, good air conditioning, comfortable seats, stands out from the rest and affordable price Occasionally handling can be quite the handful but it apart from that, I highly recommend it. Pros: Looks great. Cons: Not the best handling.
Tariq - My second hand CLK 63 AMG is an absolute beast, sounds so good and has the looks to match. Options inside are also top notch and would recommend people buy this car. Pros: Powerful engine and it’s quick. Cons: Getting in the back is a pain.
