    Random Q & A's

    I thought it'd be good for people to post random questions about anything & everything. I'll go first: Why is it that automatic cars have huge brake pedals? In all the years of driving manual cars I've never yet missed the 'small' brake pedal. :dk: Ant. :D

    Random q - anyone here owned/driven both a e250 coupe and a c350 saloon?

    Long title but simple question. Weighing up trading in my E for a gruntier C, not to mention to make that long awaited move from a 4 pot to a beautiful V6. Would love to hear from anyone that's had good experience of both in order to make a more informed decision
