    That will probably be three years and will have done around 25,000 miles by then :rolleyes::)

    I didn't realise how hard it is to find a nice blue with a pale interior at first. When we started looking that was our criteria and the first one we saw fitted the bill. I know people say you shouldn't buy the first one you see, but I often look on autotrader and rarely find anything comparable in our price bracket. We were just very lucky. I'd just got a new MoT on the old car and we gave ourselves a year to find the right Merc. Gina found this in about 10 minutes of the first day of looking 12 miles from home. We have now had nearly 5 years of happy motoring in her and think it's the best car we've ever had.
    3 years eh! I'd better start saving. Though to be honest If I can keep her running like she is and looking like she does there is no way she is being replaced.

    I am afraid that is what I did, I jumped at the first one I saw with the light interior and the spec I wanted. Luckily the car was a very low mileage which I always go for and the car was immaculate in every way. :)

    The reason I dived in when this one came up was that I had been looking for nearly six months for one like this. There was nothing wrong with the car I am part exchanging either, it has only done 32,000 miles in eight years, so there was no great hurry except that once I had made my mind up I wanted to do it there and then. I am so glad that I waited for the right one to come along. :)

    2 of the SLK 280's I tired were blue with light interiors, I bought the second one, Tanzanite Blue with Nappa Grey Leather :). I liked the light blue on the first one I tried but it was more expensive, not in as good a condition and more miles.

    -... and looking at a few forgetful humans in your first pic, it's good to see that your new transport has been programmed to social-distance automatically.
    Never find that setting when it's needed.

    I used to take great delight with the 101s in waiting till someone who had parked up close to it was coming back to their car then flinging the drivers door rapidly open. They'd always rush up and see if I'd dented their car. The funny thing was the shape of the door and height of the vehicle meant it went above the body without touching it (just don't do it with a 4x4 parked next door).
    Hilarious to see their expression....
