    Looking for a used E-Class now tha I've defected from the dark side

    Hi everybody - newbie here! ;) After 20 years of driving BMW 3, 5, 6 and 7 series I now need an estate for the first time in my life. The BMWs have been getting way too harsh riding in recent years and my spinal disk degeneration is not going to get any better. I think BMW have re-dressed the...

    Ahem. And so it has come to pass. Test drove a V50 R Design 2.4 D5 Sport SE Geartronic and loved it. Solid, sharp suited car, but conservative at the same time. So, I bought it - got a good overall deal P/EX. The ML was an enjoyable beast, but after 3 years watching a fuel gauge, it was time...

    Defected to the dark side

    Well I guess it's time for me to say goodbye for now, sold the C43 a couple weeks back. Had the AMG for almost 3 years, it was my first Mercedes and also my first V8. Got me hooked on the V8 noise and ability to pull at any rev in any gear:devil: However I was getting tired of the tin worm...

    Defected to Porsche 2 years ago. Still Happy

    In October 2005 I became totally discontented with MB for a number of reasons which I will not bore you with now. I defected together with my immediate family and I sold our MB vehicles and bought Porsche. In the 2 years since defecting I can report that all five of us have been totally...

    Defected. It is still German though.

    I have been thinking about changing for quite a while now. I love the SLK and it's been no trouble at all but I wanted a change. End of March I put a deposit on a new Honda Civic Type-R and was told delivery would be end of May. Called into the dealers yesterday to be told delivery would be...

    Almost defected but....

    So today I went to look at a Honda S2000. Love the look of it. The front is agressive and the rear is nice 'n sporty. It's well made, handles well, and goes well for a naturally asperated 2 litre engine. And it's not as 'girly' as many other smallish 2 seaters, like the MX-5 etc. BUT I struggled...

    Finally took the plunge - Defected

    Hi all, Just to let you all know that I finally took the plunge and did a deal with a dealer and did a P/X for an 05 plate Lotus Elise 111R. The cars are due to be exchanged on Wednesday. The deal did break my heart though. Against all the bad press the recent models of MBs have been getting...
