    Joining the Lounge

    Happy to announce my purchase. 2005 CLS55 AMG is mine in a matter of days. Unexpected turn of events - a distant family member had one in black from new, something I wasn't even aware of! - and was going to upgrade to the latest CLS63 SB. I've got an absolute steal in my opinion but what's more...

    Give way when joining dualled/motorways

    A few days ago, when moving slowly on the slip road and indicating to feed in to a 70mph dual carriageway, a driver on the inner lane slowed significantly, almost stopped and flashed to let me in - scary.
