    Surprise mpg for petrol E320

    Just got back from my hols. in Czech Republic, where I did about 2k. On the autobahn, I cruised at 90/100 mph where possible & the computer showed around 32 mpg, which was good. I found the most economical cruising speed was 80/85 mph where it showed 34mpg. Cruising around 70 only showed 30mpg...

    Nice surprise

    Long story short, got taken to one side at work today by my boss - 'Quiet word please...'. Thought I was in the dog house. 'What are you doing May the ??'. Turns out he and a colleague 'won' a VIP day out to one of our suppliers factories for a manufacturing tour, lunch, and the afternoon at MB...

    Surprise this morning.......

    I was proceeding towards the M25 junction with the A127 early this morning when I saw a pink object in the distance. :eek: As I got closer a women in pink sports wear was running up the slip road and glided onto the M25 hard shoulder. Nearest junction going south is about 5 miles away:dk:

    A nice surprise...

    Last Saturday I gave my little toy car a nice vacuum inside, then fitted my new foot mats bought on eBay and was very pleased with them. Cleaned/conditioned the leather, and locked her up in advance of the stormy weather. Monday, home from work, another long flat parcel had been delivered...

    Cars that surprise you.

    Have a hire car for the week, which was meant to be a Mondeo class car. Turned up to see a C-Max. Petulant faced me faced petulant hire company who offered my a Hyundi I40. Did not sound very tempting either. What a cracking car the C-Max is. Quiet, handles well, unfeasibly big inside...

    Surprise E350 and nightmare car collection scenario.

    Drove my business partner to pick up his C350 cgi coupe yesterday. The nightmare scenario occurred. It was the wrong colour! It was the lease company's fault, not the dealer and the dealer was very good and offered us an E350 cdi coupe as a loaner for the weekend while he considered his options...

    A nasty surprise

    Did Volvo really do this? So you have quite a nice looking car according to photo 1, but then you see the interior. Is this Volvo's doing or a mod by someone with no taste? Anyone like the colour of the interior? 2005 Volvo C70 T | eBay

    Pleasant surprise....

    Having heard all the horror stories about how much renewals were this year, I braced myself for a kicking and thought I'd be spending several hours on the telephone/net looking for a better deal. Renewal came today. £27.00 cheaper than last year, plus an extra £20.00 discount if I renew...

    Little mans surprise birthday present

    Yesterday I surprised my little lad by taking him for his first flying lesson (he's mad about flying). He had absolutely no idea we had this planned at all. Even when we were driving past the runway itself, he was asking if we could stop for five minutes so he could have a closer look...
