Hello all! Firstly, what a great forum this is, I’ve already learnt a lot so many thanks! I joined the Mercedes fold last May when I bought an E250 Avantgarde S212 to replace the family hack Mondeo. I’d always fancied one and it’s been absolutely perfect for what I use it for. My wife and I are keen cyclists and often take the bikes to Italy, France, Germany, Holland, Belgium...if we go further we generally fly! Biggest run so far has been Guildford to the Massif Central. The car was seemingly built for it, just effortless. So far I’ve been doing some detailing, though it’s almost mint (Tanzanite Blue with Alpaca Grey Leather). I also fitted some rear mud flaps (Rallyarmour ones), some new pale grey OE mats (keeping as a special occasions set!), refurbed the callipers and a few servicing bits. Other than that just really enjoying the waft along comfort. I’m a bit of an Italophile and the other non-human powered vehicles are an Abarth 500 (wife’s), Alfa GTV V6 with a few mods, Vespa 125 and Ducati 750SS but I can feel myself also becoming a bit of a Mercophile!
