First of all, WHAT are MB thinking pricing that car as much as £200K

I quite liked it when I first saw it on TV but then as it usually happens, Jeremy takes your smile away by showing Cons....If I had the money, I would still buy the SLR with that extra cost just for the engine sound.

anyway TG guys do keep us ammused and Show is alot more than cars now which is alot better than Fifth Gear

Cnt wait for next sunday

It struck me that 1000Nm of torque was rather more than the car could comfortably handle.
The Stig was obviously finding it quite a handful!

No don't be that link was so good,,thank you :D:D

Interested that JC ended the piece by arguing that much cheaper and less powerful cars can deliver all the power and performance you can use in the real world.

Hence my ideas, expressed in the past that an SL500 is as good as an SL55 AMG, and that the 129 (less complicated, fabric hood, better boot, cheaper car) stands useful comparison with the 230.

Discuss?

You do not get the same type of faults on the 2 cars, on the 129 the roof pump or control unit goes down, along with a few other things, on the 230 you can really get stuck into the unbelievable faults that can happen, good for making you think hard about life and is it all worthwhile:confused:

I love the logic Malcolm - "Now let's get something that can really break down"!

I am not sure that Jeremy Clarkson is that spanner literate?

Clarkson dont know the difference between a spanner and a microphone............he'd end up staring at and talking to both:lol:
