    and we think mb arnt great...

    its a fair question and when you put it in that light...... however because of the wait I kinda hoped the dealer would help a little.... interestingly when I bought a brand new smart car, there was quite a delay and they gave me a loan car, sure it was a bit of a heap but it did the job.

    Lotus elise or S2000?

    The "new" toyota powered elise (s2) has a similar "flat t0 mid range, then all hell gets let loose engine" when the second cam kicks in - its great ! I believe the old elises struggled with head gasket failures... the new toyota engine is much more reliable - and it has a six speed box (unlike...

    Parking at work.

    They're actually very strong little cars.... 5th gear ran one into a wall at 70 mph (if I remember)... they concluded that the occupants would have lived.... maybe it would be better for humanity if 4*4s are banned as they represent a danger to "regular" car drivers, not to mention cyclists...

    Speedometer Accuracy??

    think they do understand the concept of average speed... people just want to play it safe with fine/points combo risks... drove through the m1 roadworks at the weekend - didn't see anyone speeding up then slowing down before cameras - everyone I saw was keeping a constant 48 ish

    2 is probably going to become three or maybe four :eek: to keep this going... if you had 10 k, what would you buy ? those kia's with their7 year warrenties look very inviting - I'm sure you could have it debadged !

    yeah I mentioned volvo - he kind wrinkled his face like he'd eaten a chilli and muttered "caravans".... which is fair I suppose

    LOL - thats probably why he wouldn't - cos I'd rip him to bits and I wouldn't be alone ! If he bought a lexus it'd last 3 months at the most and his pain would last a lot longer..... He currently drives an A4, and I think he's board of vw/audi.

    at what point did they start galvanising c classes - or mercs in general ? Is it a problem it's not galvanisied ? seems a bit harsh to say "not worth anyones money"

    He's not a car geek, he is however, image concious. He does about 8-10 k a year and for a long as I've known him, keeps his car for a max of 3 yrs... He didn't mention saab - so I guess its off the radar.... Mondeo and subaru's he wouldn't even consider...... size - well there's only himself...
