    W211 economy vs W212

    Great feedback and info my sincere thanks, I find a growing soft spot for the W211 for some bizarre reason and if I get it then the choice of alloy upgrade I think I have myself the ultimate personal transport device for my needs :)

    W211 economy vs W212

    I can relate to your figures quite well, my Vectra has a combined book figure of 47.8mpg but I can average up to 53mpg tank to tank so am not the harshest of drivers I think,,,, Thank you for sharing :)

I am now quite seriously looking at either a W211 E220 CDi or W212 E220/e250 and wonder what real world driving will return. I do mostly motorway runs...

    Best car wax to use ??

    You can mask them temporarily with AG super resin polish topped off with a wax finish. Blackfire 3000 and a DA using a hex pad will remove the swirls and a good pre-wash two bucket and rinse wash regime will reduce the opportunity for them to return. Don't go anywhere near T-cut it will make...

    fastest way to transfer a private plate??

    AMG Bodykit,,,, is this a front end that can be picked up anywhere and for less than the cost of a third world country??? BTW I just looked at your car "Stunning" springs to mind, a saloon in Iridium with those wheels that front would be pretty much my ultimate look,,,
