    May be better when I get used to it ,a bit disconcerting light pointing around corner,although I haven't used it in total darkness yet.

    I won't mention the silly infra red total closure where you have to stand next to the drivers door or the lack of dead locks or faux leather or halogen lighting ....

    Hence your insistence that £1000+ a piece headlights were completely acceptable :rolleyes:

    I went to see my son in Manchester last w/e and according to computer I averaged 60 mpg so I can't complain about .but another dislike is the M6 motorway.

    The M25 from the M20 or M/A2 junction to the Dartford Crossing. Absolute crap road planning, almost always crawling traffic. Roll on the new lower thames crossing!!

    Equally the M20 upgrade to "Smart Motorway" around Miadstone and building works for J10A around Ashford - months and months of reduced lanes and 50mph speed limit (average speed camera controlled) when most of the time there's no-one working in the barriered off lanes!

    It must be nearly 100 miles of roadworks. I found out all about it when I went up to see John Laidlaw recently. Came home the back way and it took no longer and was far more enjoyable.

    It is and very frustrating- as we discussed back road all the way - there’s some cameras dotted but a few bits you can still be ‘spirited’ on :)

    Well you Know Dell she's not toooooo bad - for a car that I lurve!

    More seriously though, I hadn't expected to like her as much as I do, after all I didn't pay a fortune for her and yet she gives me loads of very pleasurable miles. Every time I go out in her - especially on my favourite twisties and selecting the gears - she just feels great and is STILL good on fuel. Pleasure without pain.

    I paid a good wedge for my car but it will probably be my last ,and I got three years warranty included.
    I love the car but there is allways things we don't like,but still they take some beating wouldn't change to another make, had a flirt with Jags, but allways come back to Mercedes.
    Why do we all call our cars she,her.?

    Because they're beautiful, give us lots of pleasure when treated well but can be moody and cantankerous when they decide to be.

    And when most of us love something we think is beautiful it's usually female. (Non PC, but true).;)

    They are Dell. If you find one that isn't it's broken.
