    Oh, and cracked my Mercedes duck too!

    Picking up my new (to me) S500L W221 on Monday.

    Slightly scary with the mpg, car tax and sheer value on the road, but it had to be done, and with an 8 mile commute I'm persuading myself that a petrol engine is better for the environment too :bannana:

    The one that starts!
    Welcome to the forum. A V8 S class is always a nice way to get around and you will find the costs are well worth it!

    Thanks James - trading up from a BMW 730D which is a great car, but doesn't quite finish the job in the way the Merc manages
