Hi All,

Well I've took the plunge and moved from the massed ranks of BMW 3 series to a CLK 270d 05/55 coupe. The car is well specced (including COMAND) and I've bought it from Mercedes Direct - anybody any experience with them?

After 4 BMW's it was a big leap for me to move to a different marque - is it a sign of old age creeping in you think? :p

I pick it up over the Easter weekend so countdown begins :bannana:

I hope to be a regular visitor to these pages - seems full of good advice.

Just thought I'd say hi!

cheers
Steve

No, not old age. Just good taste.

The 5-cylinder is a lovely engine, with a nice, er, 5-cylinder warble to it when it's on song. Hope you're happy.

Mercedes Direct. Hmmm. Haven't been too impressed with them myself, but as long as you're happy, that's the main thing.

Having been on both sides of the fence (and just climbing back over this side again currently!) I'm sure you won't be disappointed.

Enjoy the new car :)
