    Hi Everyone

    New to this forum, but a regular poster on motorhome forums. I am the Chairman of the Technical Group of the Auto-Sleepers Owners Club.

    I have an Auto-Sleeper motorhome built on a 2017 Sprinter Chassis cab

    My wife has a Smart For Two

    At a recent gathering of our club, I won a Mercedes wristwatch in a prize draw, which has reinforced my status as a "brand victim" Subsequently, I changed my Peugeot for a 2014 E220 CDi (W212). I bought it from Chelmsford Mercedes, who I was very happy with during the buying process The only car I have ever bought where the dealer filled the tank for me (at their cost) before I left for home in Derby!

    I am a retired Control Systems Engineer. Loving the car, wanted one for a long time.

    Hope for many useful posts on here.

    Dennis Downie

    Welcome Dennis, my wife had a couple of Smart for Two, last one a new convertible. After living in Jersey where it was garaged and moving to West Wales where it stood out in the rain it had to go! She went back to her first love a 3 door Rav 4 Auto, 54 plate which runs like a clock. I love driving it almost as much as my ML ( in town at least ). Enjoy your E class, I had an older 2008 320 cdi and really missed it but needed something with a higher seating position, hence the ML

    Thanks all - been away a while and now in the process of selling the W212 and getting a 2 year old B-200 AMG Line. my wife does not feel comfortable driving the E-class so with only 49K and 6 years under the wheels, it has to go. (so does her Smart Fourtwo). Just about to dive off and look at the series threads....
