    ... looking back at my car when I park it up! I tend to look back at least twice, admiringly :)

    When I come back I also walk round it to check any marks etc. since leaving it.

    Am I the only one ...

    Yep, I do this quite a bit too. But also to other Mercs that I see around.

    For example, if I see a 211 passing by, I look at the headlamps/front indicators to see if it's a current generation or one of the earlier ones.

    Obsessed? Me?


    Yeah ok, maybe I am. :)

    I appear to be normal. At least in comparison with the above.

    Always glance back to check it's locked (auto-folding mirrors are a god send!)
    On my return, a quick circuit of the car, look at tyres and along the flanks for any "dings" - All ok, sigh of relief.

    Open the door, climb in and SMILE :)
