Hi all, seems like I have restrained myself for most of the 48 years on the planet, well, at least since 18 and allowed to drive, I have only ever owned VX's and have been very happy with them, however, I have only just dived in in at the deep end and bought myself a 2 & half year old CLA, I cannot believe I waited so long....and I will never go back, here is my car, CLA 220d

Hi Neil, welcome to the forum. That's the trouble with MB, there is no way back. But then who the hell wants to anyway :)

She looks lovely. I'd driven all sorts too, including a range of VXs. Now I regret all those wasted years. (not really, I bought a Merc as soon as I could afford one, and even then it was 9 years old.)

I agree wholeheartedly! I only ever had vauxhalls and Lexus in the main ( a few Fords scattered in and around) and wish now I had experienced the MB marque much sooner.

If Vauxhall still did RWD I reckon I'd still have one. I can't say that my R Class is particularly better than the Senators & Omega I had ..... other than drinking more :D

What a hugely under-rated car the 24v Senator was !! Brilliant car :)
