Have you driven any of their pillarless coupes? We had a 2004 CLK from new until last year (over 130,000 miles) and it had plenty of chassis flex and developed rattles especially around the "B pillar" area behind the doors. I'm glad my Bimmers have all had B pillars.

On the plus side, you never really drove that car like a sports car so the floppy chassis wasn't much of a problem and the visibility was tremendous.
