    Hello all

    My name is Gavin and I have just purchased a 2001 C320 Avantgarde. It was up for peanuts so thought I would dive in and give it a go. I have had two W163`s in the past, both petrol and diesel, and both bought for the wife as I was into BMW`s.

    So far I am pleased with the 320 and am now starting to tidy her up a little and hope this forum will give me the confidence to tackle most of the work myself.

    I live in Farnborough, Hampshire , so anyone close by?

    Thanks

    Hey Hairless,

    I was into BM's too (E46 330ci & E92 335i), but getting older and maybe wiser have gone the route to Mercedes ownership again, which I personally find so much more of a comfortable ride and no need to avoid poor roads surfaces, by swerving all over the place!

    You got a point there, definately more luxurious and smoother ride. I think I still need a beemer though.... just to take out and thrash now and then :D

    What merc do you have at the moment?
