New here, New to Merc...

Hi everyone,

My name is Bryan (28) from Scotland, started off as a BMW driver... until i drove a merc c180 sport!

i quickly traded my 2009 318d M Sport for a 2010 C-Class 180 CGI Sport... it was sold to me as a 1.8 supercharged petrol sport model but turns out its a 1.8 petrol turbocharged engine that's in it... little less BHP but its still rapid and drives like a go-kart around the town with the ESP off lol

Both the BMW and the Merc look fantastic though personally i feel the Merc has the edge on the over all driving experience while preserving the fun side...

I've always modified my cars in the past but the Merc just looks and feels right already, i've tastefully added some extra sound system though i was very impressed with the OEM system setup to start with...

only other thing i have in mind is fitting an atmospheric BOV (que the slagging), Merc haven't made this easy however with their electronic diverter valve that's made out of plastic bolted to the turbo and nowhere to take a vacuum feed from, grr.
