Hello all,

New MB owner here having come from the lofty world of VW Golf R32 ownership. I considered my options and decided that as the C63 AMG is the father figure for my previous car, I'd take the plunge.

Picked up a 2010 saloon in Palladium and despite running out of fuel once (that 30 miles remaining disappeared remarkably quickly, like 10x too quickly!) I now have the hang of this fuelling thing and seem to be running at least 200 miles between tanks ;)

Having driven my two best friends cars (2002 CL 500 and 2008 CLS 500) I was ready for the much more premium feel, but not quite ready for the pull on the 6.2; incredible - especially having come from the 250 bhp AWD of the R32, the exit onto a wet main road was...enlightening :)

Anyway, hope to ask plenty of questions and answer a few. I am obviously never breaking the speed limit given my profession, but I do "make good progress" :eek:

Long term member of two other forums and moderator for one, so don't expect any untoward behaviour :crazy:

Also hoping adding "options" doesn't end up being too expensive ;)

One that doesn't do anything illegal, ahem!

One that can hopefully try and provide useful advice regarding criminal law and would be more likely to drive a diesel Hyundai at work (or a BMW if lucky!) than anything like a C63 :D

Nice choice - you've chosen a car which is very well suited at making good progress. :)

In the old days, when you bought a new AMG you used to get a full day driving course included in the price, half of which was on the MIRA test track(s) with a racing driver, and half of which was on the road with a driving professional ;), mostly retired but the odd one was still serving. They were incredible at making good progress!! :eek:

Enjoy your new car and welcome to MBClub!
