I`ve finally picked the car up and driven 60 miles home. Took another 15 to a mates house and then back home.
First thing, fuelled up....could only fill to halfway before it started clicking...odd.
Anyway, the drive. Set seat up, sorted climate, found radio station and off to go.
Being a MB newbie I'm swatting up on all thing Benz.
I've fallen in love with Jezza's 600 Grosser
Has anybody in here owned one, been in one?
They look incredible.
Incidentally looks like it's off road.

Hey all, well I went a total of 24 hours without a C55 over the weekend. Hehe.
Managed to pick up Joe's old Black C55, and first impressions are its what I should of waited for in the first place, I love it! Suspension is brilliant, inspires more confidence in the corners. And it looks a lot...
So the story goes:
Wed 25th afternoon past started feeling weak/sore all over.
Come the evening this developed into occasional reflex jerks (like a caricature of Parkinson's). Very uncomfortable especially holding a bowlful of mandarins and custard. :eek:
Turned in at 9pm and woke at...
One has a Mr Mocas turning up for a cup of rosie lee (One gathers this is what they call it) soon and one wondered what the collective wisdom of the board should be as to the appropriate tea to serve? Mug? One does feel the obligation to put him at his ease, but obviously one wouldn't wish to...
So today the sun came out again....only one thing for it the W211 gets a deep clean:D
Sprayed with Surfex HD 1 in 10 diluted and left to dwell for 5 mins
Hand wash with microfibre cloth and shampoo...bad lad only 1 bucket!:eek:
Pat dry with microfibre...
Just thought I'd share some pictures of my W211 after it was washed, clayed, polished with SRP followed by a couple if coats of Meguire's Liquid Gold and finished off with a gloss seal.
Thank god it's going to be a dry sunny week so I can at least enjoy the car before it ends up filthy...
I'm getting R2 ready today for a proper drive ie. about 2000 miles :)
Tomorrow we will do the 500 miles from Kent to Stirling by what ever route Comand says is quickest. Then the next day we will start the route below.
Once we get back to Fife we will do trips out to North Berwick...
1 week old and I've finally given the car some much needed TLC with a lovely coat of SwissVax "Best of Show" - many thanks to Steve of Mirror Finish for turning up on such a horrible morning and keeping the faith that the sun would eventually appear long enough to put on some wax!
Having fitted winter tyres to my wifes Tiguan, a lady came round a bend (without suitably shod wheels) hit a slippery bit and slamed head-on into the Tiguan. Both ladies are ok (whiplash, bruising etc.) but cars badly smashed. The Tiguan has all the front (radiators etc.) pushed hard back round...
