    It will get moved on at some point but SWMBO wants it as she is not keen on her Howdy A4

    Other than that is needs a B5 Service and will get washed regularly

    I'm always looking on Autotrader at MB's , mainly CL,S,SL,E,CLS , so all the big ones . I still think ill have the E class and Clk for at least another year or two .
    I will probably change the CLk first when I do for an E class convertible , probably an E350cdi (before the stop start stuff ) .
    Better go and tip my piggy bank on to the bed to see if any of this is possible :D . Otherwise Autotrader will keep getting a hammering !

    Been in discussions about a subtle map for the E Class for a while now. Once it's been finalised and tested on the MSL guinea pig then I may try it out and see how it goes. Nothing much other than that, though who knows what's going to happen...

    As for the little 190E, this may just be advertised for sale as I feel that it's no longer being used as it should be. I've done less than 1,000 miles in it this year, with over 500 of those being on one trip. Not only that but, as I'm getting a bit older and less flexible, I'm finding it increasingly difficult to do certain things on. I may just have a look around for something to replace it, or even to consolidate both Mercedes into one. It won't be anything particularly economical mind...

    Nothing is certain yet though, so the above may or may not happen.

    My son is supposed to collect his E53 AMG Coupe any day now. He keeps them max 3 years. Depending on miles / condition / price, it might be my next drive.

    Is this the beginnings of an S63 coupe arriving on the driveway Dave?
    Glad to hear economy isn't top of your list either:D

    Not one of those Roger no, though I must admit to looking at them a while ago. ;)

    To be honest, I've really got to liking the E Class now, the 4matic has been helping me in this respect, really impressed with the handling abilities of the car. Having said that, I'll probably have a look round in the late summer to see what is out there and make a decision then one way or the other...

    Mine will be getting a tidy up, actually might get round to doing a deep clean on the exterior which I have to admit I've still not done since I bought it.
    Probably get it remapped as the current map is just not that smooth,
    Will get a B service and ATF change, think that will be it.
    The 169 looks like it needs front springs, a bit of a clean and that should be about it

    Was just time Andy....the panzer was an absolute beast of a car but I was at the cross roads- should I do more to it? Should I leave it and drive it accepting that the 213 version was depreciating the 212 further sadly...? Should I go for the 213 or an AMG GT. All these were options, the latter 2 quite ‘stretching’ financially . Then when looking at an AMG GT and not really making the figures add up, the same dealer had an i8....few weeks later I bought one (not the same dealer but BMW approved used with all the extras I wanted and the optimum colour), the rest is ‘history’ as they say.
    Will I miss the 63? Absolutely! However I won’t miss a few things- 212 63’s are in the territory of boy racers now financially and are being modified beyond recognition- the 213 is such a step forward the 212 (to me) was feeling less ‘special’- running costs couldn’t be ignored either (I now have £0 road tax and averaging atm 97 mpg!)
    It’s not a car for the shy mind! Folks stop you to talk about it, they slow down to take pics on the road and generally stare at it. Quite special. Mercedes sadly don’t have anything like the i8 within my reach so (as I’ve posted elsewhere) this will likely be my last handle to be in supercar territory (without selling my house which SWMBO might object to!)

    I understand John, they are definitely an eye catcher. Hope you enjoy the new driving experience. Are you staying around the MB forum?

    I know you don't think...:rolleyes: look at your whip :p

    And yes we can get rid of you... although questionable taste in automobiles isn't a rule breaker unfortunately (frantically re-writing the forum rules as I type... ;))
