Hi

I had to call into the local dealers this evening and ended up parking between an e class convertible and a B? Class.

The sl looks tiny in comparison.

And the R129 isn't a small car.

Just shows how lardy modern cars have got. Apparently, the extra bulk is what drives the large diameter wheel fad now seen. It's to hide all the fat.

just goes to show how finely trimmed and tuned the past generations were.. i mean i put my 124 cabrio next to the new 3 series saloon, and the 124 looks anorexic in comparison, even though when you actually look at it again after blinking, its the 124 that looks perfectly trimmed and balanced... A SUPER MODEL.. whilst the modern car, in this case the 3 series is a BLOAT!

About as long as a 12yo Focus estate, and a little wider.

Considering the above, weighing in at 1900kg makes it pretty damn heavy.
