    Came out of the Cinema last night with the other half to find the car park had turned into a scene from Fast and the furious Tokyo Drift.

    Cars flying up and down and just a general car meet of young lads with around 50-60 cars.. Had about 5 cars trying to race me on the way home.

    Noticed a nice C63 there and then saw this on facebook this morning!

    Because the first thing a car thief does is take it to a local car meet... Hopefully he gets done for perverting the course of justice along with all the other charges that'll hopefully be brought against him.

    Basts. :mad:

    Total scum, why anyone would go to such a meeting and drive in such a way is beyond me. I've been a petrol head since I was 18 and was into my Fords during the 90's. Yet I have never felt the need to attend a "meeting" or "cruise" and certainly never entertained in such examples of as these.

    I saw a Black C63 that was totally trashed being taken off down the road two nights ago near Maidstone. My friend (the local traffic guy) tells me that the owner reported it stolen "with keys" within minutes of it being smashed. They are not happy with his story and continue to investigate. I noticed it, as it was the same car that attempted to go up Detling Hill two nights before, in a sub zero time, only to find that the traffic (as it usually does in rush hour) had come to a standstill. He also came to a standstill, engulfed in his own tyre smoke and parked a 45 degrees across the carriageway.

    The colour or the car? If you refer to the colour, I think that 'particular' shade is called scumbag white! Hopefully a very rare shade!

    It's a shame that some of the more recent models that MB produce attract a different type of driver, it wasn't that long ago that you would have associated such an incident with some drunk old grunter driving home from ladies night at the golf club.

    Will be on eBay soon, as 1 careful owner, mint condition prior to sustaining damage, damage was very very light panel damage which has obviously been repaired to a very high standard! ;)

    Not condoning the idiotic driving that clearly that chap has been doing but...

    The elitist comments on this forum towards AMG models make me feel that some of the more "mature" or "wiser" members need to man up and stop being so derogatory towards AMG's, the C63 in particular.

    Yes fast cars are bought by people to drive fast in, its not new news.

    What an idiot, I hope it wasn't anyone from here

    I'd be at these 'meets' every Sunday evening at Milton Keynes stadium without fail when I was 18-22, back then the only people racing were the ones with crap cars. The 'nice cars'/expensive ones would just park up, be admired and then drive home in an orderly fashion

    Nowadays I wouldn't even see the point in racing a c63 near a meet what would be the point? Try and prove it can beat the majority of Barry Civics and Imprezas that people have :dk:

    AMG's or similar vehicles are bought by the owner to be driven fast, otherwise what is the point of owning one?

    However there is a time and a place, and this was neither. Driving fast is not always wreckless but driving stupidly is
