    Are you talking about the SMGII? Thats a gearbox. I'd take that or the 6 speed over mercedes semi autos anyday, as good as they are. BMW's straight six VANOS system is bulletproof. Where is all this motor explosion talk coming from?

    A CLK320 is $59,900. The M3 base price is $73,500, and you'll NEVER get one that cheap.
    It takes a big man to cry, but it takes a bigger man to laugh at that man.

    66 blown E46 M3 motors recorded to date, possibly more from people who do not visit the online car forums! Check it out for yourself:

    M3 is about $82k with tax CDN

    if you go to mbusa.com they list the CLK 320 at $43kUSD
    maybe a couple thousand cheaper for quite a bit less performance. And the M3 wait is only about 4 months now, so i dont know why you think you would have to pay more? that doesnt make a lot of sense

    the engine blowing is a concern though, but its all warranty so who cares. Who knows what those people were doing. For the risk i'd still take the M3.

    If the M3 was problem free, sure, hell I would take the M3 since it is the better car. But you have got to be crazy! I don't think that many people are doing the same thing to blow up the motor on their cause.

    $15,000 less is not "a couple thousand cheaper". For the price of the M3, I could have an AMG SLK32. Oh, wait...

    "It's all warranty so who cares" - that'll be comforting as your $80,000 depreciating asset sits in the service department awaiting a rebuild.

    Um, $45000USD = 71,492.19 CAD
    plus tax = approximately $81k
    So its maybe $1k cheaper. Thats interesting math you did there though...
    For twice the car. I'd take the risk, or wait 6 months until the problem is sorted out.

    No, YOUR math is the problem. The tax does not even come CLOSE to $10k

    $71,492.19 x 1.07 = $76,496.64

    Thats over $5k cheaper than an M3.
