    This Paulo from southeast Portugal owner of a ML270cdi bath tub and I am really happy to join this forum hoping to find remedies for Arthritis, flatulence, bad knees, and incontinence. For my car of course. Forgot to mention this one used to belong to king Abdulhah and it's made of gold and that's why it didn't cost me £2/3K nor 500 bucks but an infamous 9500€.
    So I have literally given away an 8yo volvo which was economic, cool, and efficient just because the tax man here wanted 28000€ to register the car I paid back in the UK with my money when resident there and because I wouldn't pay I had to dispose of it and buy this thing on finance as unfortunately cars here are ****** expensive and poorly maintained. So, I thought of an mb but looks like I've shot my foot that day.

    I can't help much about the "oil-burner" as I've never had one, (thank God!)..... But for the "arthritis, flatulence, bad knees, and incontinence" I suggest get up north and eat plenty of francesinhas! It will cure you or kill you - mas pelo menos você morre feliz!.....:D

    Welcome Paulo, the Volvo may have been economic and efficient, but cool? Mercedes are much cooler cars. Sorry to read about your foot. Any car will malfunction without proper maintenance. Hope you find a really good garage to bring your car to good order.

    Your reference to King Abdullah made me smile. I had the pleasure of exploring his garage late last year and being driven in a couple of his cars. No gold ones, but some heavy with bomb-proofing. Some lovely Mercs among them.

    Wow! The King thing was just allegoric but I still wonder if my dealer hasn't been in that garage too... And, the day you'll get to buy a Volvo you will change your mind, these might not be the coolest but believe me they are all the rest.

    You're right. It will help with my mechanics for sure. Thanks for your support and that's extended to all.
