    Took the plunge!

    Hi All, With no previous experience of them, decided (with OH encouragement) to purchase a late 2012 C-class (AMG sport) 220 (170bhp) variant, just getting to grips with it now and certainly growing on me. Never had a MB or diesel before so quite a change, slightly concerned at winter...

    Hello - Thinking about taking the plunge

    Hello all, Just thought I would introduce myself. I am David Fox (aka Foxy) and I have longed for a MB with AMG on the end. As my Dad has had 19 MBs in his lifetime, his retirement gift to himself was a C63 AMG Coupe. After driving it several times I have come to the conclusion that I need...

    I took the plunge

    Thanks for all your advice pre-purchase on the W211. I took the plunge and got myself what I hope turns out to be a bargain, I have had it 3 days and have 300 miles of extremely contented driving. I just have a couple of questions: 1. What is the best product to clean and precondition the...

    Taken the D6 III Brabus plunge with my CLS

    After patiently waiting for the right chip to come up at the right price, have now installed the D6 III Brabus chip on my CLS. So far am very impressed by the effect it has had. It adds quite a bit of urgency to proceedings - the tourque wave seems to be accessible a bit earlier and is stronger...

    Taking the plunge

    Have been searching for ages for a quality SLK 32AMG and gave up this week after tiring of fruitless forays to the far flung corners of the empire. Missed a good one through over haggling and the thought of paying 10k for a ten year old car.... I know better now and am kicking myself for...

    Taken the plunge at last

    Since buying the SL I've done so many more miles than I had ever planned in it, in fact 33,000 in 27 months.The sheer joy of it has been compulsive and my other car, the BMW 530d whilst being worthy is just so boring I haven't driven it since last October, in fact it's currently SORN'd and the...

    Taking the plunge

    Headgasket's gone on my W124 230CE coupe but as the car's in such good nick I'm going to get it fixed. Flush out the engine and give her a good old service. However there's a bit of a squeak coming from under the car when I go over bumps. It sounds like a groaning creak, hesitate to say graunch...

    Taken the plunge - my new W124 E320 Coupe

    I have been sorely tempted by Nick Froome's cars at W124 and while I had been planning an estate, a solitary dunkelblau with mushroom leather E320 Coupe was listed, and I was smitten. Trecked down to a very sunny Brighton this morning, met Nick, had my fears about rear legroom eased, and went...
