    Driving back from birmingham today I passed a German registered S420 CDI. Knowing that we don't get it here (and wondering why the car, which was a facelift, wasn't designated 450 as ML/GL 4.0 V8 diesels have been since 2009) I was surprised to see various screens and laptops sprouting from the dash.

    I saw this about 200 yards ahead of it, so must be testing UK setup of the car. Note the rivets in the bodywork that were presumably once holding the camouflage on. Looks great in the flesh.

    Hog-Tronic was a special factory fit option fitted to the shed along with rust-Tronic and big breakdown-tronic.

    What Hog-Tronic does is inject a unique chemical in the air that fools the body into instant hunger, it works a treat too:rolleyes::D

    But BBQ tronic PLUS option instals a BBQ that slides out from the boot, and a grill plate headed from exhaust heat.

    Suitably for cooking the breakfast of champions. Only comes with a 3 year corrosion warranty though.

    My 211 has a special pork pie storage box between the front seats and is fitted with the rare Bogie-Tronic feature only available in conjunction with Easy Pack.
