had MANY cars in my time..
first time i got a merc..
i got a C220D blue with black leather interior..
it's got the evolution susp pack on it and at first i thought it was too hard, but i got used to it and deflated my back tyres by a few psi and now i love it!
seriously this thing goes round corners like it's on rails!
also my first diesel, and diesel engines have different dynamics than petrol, so i'm getting used to that, but if i REALLY try hard i can sometimes pip 50mpg, which is incredible..
my old bmw 318ti compact, 1.8 petrol, which is replaced could BARELY get 25mpg on a good day, so it's a real step up in terms of mpg..
i am after some info (stereo, wheels and tyres), but will post in the relevant place
