Hullo!

Hi,

Currently own a '99 C220 CDI Auto that I've had for just over a year. Great cars and a welcome return to the 3 pointed star after making the mistake of selling my 190E a few years back

Anyway, might be changing soon as although the C220 is getting good MPG, need something even more frugal, and not just because I'm Scottish

Toying with the idea of an A Class, of similar vintage, rather than switch brand...decision has not been made yet, done a fair bit of reading this weekend, which brought me here.

Cheers

Dave

In central Scotland, which had been, pretty much, bypassed by the snow; there seems to be a wee flurry of it at the moment, but it's not settling.

Wont be too disappointed if it doesnt lie, have had winter tyres on for the last couple of months, but they are on their last winter.

I am surprised. Even northern China is getting hit this year, and some snow in the sub tropics as well. Bloody freezing here tonight but at least the sun came out to play this afternoon and blew the pollution away LOL.

Surprised too, rest of UK are getting snow but hardly any here

Summer was also odd in the Scotland had the best of the weather, especially to the north and the Isle of Skye saw no rain for 26 weeks!
