    Harry & Meghan the Oprah interview

    Yes, it's a thing. Apparently the British are sceptical about Presidents.

    C350e owners club

    To clarify, I was comparing highly specified blue 2015 estates. which seem to be offered - not necessarily sold - at around the £15k level - which is £30k less than the list price of a highly specified C350e estate in 2015. Sadly I can't afford new cars. "I'm just a poor boy from a poor family...

    C350e owners club

    Thanks for the candid reply. It's very helpful. As I said, I'm interested in it primarily as a short-distance runabout, looking at it as a £15k five year old well-specified alternative to something like a C200 petrol. I fancy dipping my toe into the water, but was just trying to understand if...

    Fancying this.

    SAABs were great, as mass market cars. I had an 1980 900 Turbo, an '89 9000 turbo, a '98 9-3 turbo, a 2000 9-5 Aero, and finally a 2007 9-3 LPT convertible (wife's car). They're not luxury cars, and the turbos are primitive compared to modern cars but, like Mercedes, they're cars that tend...

    C350e owners club

    Battery life / replacement? When the C350e came out, "I think" the original warranty for the battery was something like 62k miles or 6 years, with a potential replacement cost of £9k. (I don't know if that was 62k electric miles or 62k vehicle miles) "In the real world," what actually is the...

    C350e owners club

    Can anyone recommend a good used car review for a 2015/16 C350e ? I'm being nagged to consider an estate later this year. TBH the W222 is more my thing, but I'm being to consider alternatives.

    Here's another 'interesting' colour...

    Reminds me of the Chromaflair paint used on TVR's and MG's. Clever stuff these modern wraps - much cheaper than proper paint. An ideal colour for Range Rovers - would stop the Chavs from nicking the damn things seven days a week and twice on Sundays. Stunning the first time you see it, but...

    Have You Seen Any Interesting Cars On The Road Lately?

    It's a handmade Vicarage Mk2 Jaguar. Built to new near standards. Vicarage started business as one of the early builders / restorers of 1950's and 60's Jags. Might be built to original standards, may have been modified to add trendy things like power steering. I sold my old Mk2 to the lead...

    North American Cities to visit...

    Well, we've answered the exam question and the OP's has made his booking. The one thing I'd add is that it's all like answering the question "What's the best city in Europe for a week's visit ?" Each is great, but they're not the same people, even though they're all Europeans. Toronto...
