    :D

    Now then, Chaps and Chapesses.

    After much deliberation on which forum to join, I decided on this one!

    Briefly, my road to MB ownership started when I decided to get rid of my company motor (an '08 Astra 1.7 diesel estate) And really fancied a Jag S Type, but, the company I work for insisted the boot was too small. I was driving passed an indie garage and fell for the '05 E270 Avantgarde CDi (had to be the oil burner as they are still fuelling it :bannana: ) So here I am, bundled in to your more than capable virtual hands :D

    Welcome on board.......................

    You made the right choice of forum. The others are pale imitations.......despite what they may or maynot claim.

    Welcome, can we have pics on your very nice car. You can join the other MB forums, but you'll end up on this one by far the most.

    Well then, thanks for the warm welcome and yes, seamster, another Northerner :bannana:

    I'd definitely be up for that, would need plenty of notice tho' I only work Fri-Sun so would have to take a day off work!

    I've only got a few at the moment, bloody rain! Anywhere special to post them, or just bung a few on here?

    You're coming to the one in Scotland so I'll return the favour :D

    Best bet is to upload them to photobucket (or something similar) and copy the IMG code into the thread. There is a members gallery but we can't reply so put them here too.

    This is about it so far, I take pics in RAW and Photoshop is being a pain . . .But watch this space (and others), I'm sure there'll be more :)
