    I love my CLK

    Really I do, but one week in, and already it needs a new lower arm and windscreen is getting replaced on insurance in two weeks time

    Then it has a MOT. In one week I have bought a new seat belt, a new fog and a new lower arm. I know I got the car at a steal, but I really hope it ends here! I knew about the fog and seat belt, and negotiated cash off the car for these.

    I hope to GOD it needs nothing else, I am not disappointed, car really is lovely and I know the lower arm was probably already on its way out when I bought the car, but I really rue these potholes everywhere!!!

    I HATE POTHOLES

    If you hate potholes, why not share some photos of one? This is mine, really close to where I live, its not a pothole, more of a sea of potholes:

    Potholes are a nightmare.

    I am fortunate in that I travel the same roads daily and not only do I look for them to avoid them, you get to learn where they are once established.

    When I drive around the Isle of Wight, especially on my daily trek to Ryde from Winford (Near sandown) The roads are like the surface of the moon, I zig zag around the pot holes trying to keep my diamond cut 18's from damage. People behind me must think I'm mad

    I hate potholes as well. I hit one the other night on a roundabout, thought l had cracked a trim but was lucky and got away with it. A real menace to normal driving!

    And when they are 'mended' lasts about a month until back again!

    There's certainly one section of road I use in the morning and it probably looks like I am driving round the Monaco GP circuit.

    The people who will think you are mad will have 6" profile tyres and not a care in the world about potholes!
