    Hi there everyone, I have recently swapped my R171 for a R172 CDI. I just love the car styling and the economy especially now that it has been chipped (not remapped). I reside in South Devon and hope to meet likeminded car enthusiasts.

    Welcome. My wife is on her second R171, no urge to move to the R172 yet.

    I had the R171 and wish I could have both but finances can limit choices. Mine was the 350 in Black with all the extras - beautiful car but a bit thirsty compared to my current 250 CDI which has been chipped and returns over 50 mpg.

    Both of ours were the 200K, both of them spent most of their time commuting into Birmingham each day. Get about 33MPG running about, & about 40MPG on a run.
