When I was shopping for the 6er and the CLS, I remember the CLS wasn't that much bigger than the 6er. The back seats might have a little bit more leg room. As for speed, you can't beat the torque on the amg cars. Its going to pull hard.

He's had no problems so far. Let me put it this way I refuse to drive his car because the one time I did driving the 6 felt as if had no power at all lol.

ive had no issues so far as tbal mentioned...defintely check out mbworld.org and look in the c219 cls amg section as well as the w211 E55 amg section (basically identical cars) lots of threads for new buyers...i would say the inside is very comparable to the 6 in the front and the rear of the cls is a bit more roomier than the 6. it is QUICK so dont worry about that good luck with it...you'll def love it.....and try to get the dynamic and cooled seats....the only option i wanted and couldn't get

the e63 ss had was JUNK, yes its NA, but bigger motor, but no where near as fun as the 5.4 supercharged. e55, cls55 are both nutty cars.

Its about time someone spoke the truth.

I have a 55, and quite a few of my friends have the 63's. I personally think the supercharged 55 makes it that much funner.

+1 loved the power output of my good ole E55, didn't miss how it drives after buying my 550i though
