    Hi, New member and new to Merc ownership

    New first time Merc owner

    Hi folks, Just bought a 2011 E350 CDI Sport Estate. Only had it a couple of days so early days yet, but so far I'm happy with it. A little worried about service and maintenance costs, but hey, we'll see how it goes. I'll be having a good read of the forums, maybe ask some (daft!:rolleyes:)...

    Going through some old photos and found this.. my first ever Mercedes, bought just after my 18th birthday for the princely sum of £300 (Not including the Brabus replicas).

    Not a Merc, somewhat mental.

    Given that the venerable Triumph Spitfire wasn't renowned for its handling (and only had to cope with about 70 BHP, IIRC), who thought it was a good idea to kit one out with a Hayabusa engine? :eek: Instant death at the first corner, I'd have thought.. 1970 Triumph GT6 with Suzuki Hayabusa...

    What I didn't do in my Merc on Saturday

    Had quite a busy and varied day on Saturday. Left before six to rush down to near Silverstone where I had to pull the engine from our Classic Formula Ford car for tech. inspection.

    Merc A200 (2016) lacking bass

    My wife has had an A200 for a couple of months and finds its stereo sound quality (Audio 20) a little lacking in oomph and bass reproduction. She's coming from an Audi TT that had a surround sound Bose system. It's still under warranty, so not sure if we can add/fit/upgrade the speaker system...

    new to merc

    G'day I've just bought a 2006 E55 estate, mega high miles, but hopefully it will keep on going for a while yet. It's got the 7 seat option (useful with 4 kids), but usually only used for me as a DD. Have already gleaned lots of info from the forums (thanks!), and hopefully can contribute...
