Hey guys. I am trying to figure out how much time does a model last. I already saw some CLS spyshots and obviously our beloved SLK is going to change soon. The C and E just changed, so i'm guessing S-Class is next? sometime in 2012? It seems mercedes aer putting all their cars on the slanted lights + grills look, so the CLK might be next. I think the ideal time to get a model is 2 years after it came out, you can get it used and a good price with still some time for the generation to go. I think the only one that meets that criteria right now is the S-Class.
