    hi im new here,
    bought my first merc last year,
    its a w210 e240 in silver... runs on lpg..

    its as easy run as my old 1.0 polo and twice as comfortable
    insurance is really cheap at £340 considering im in northern ireland..

    just replaced the 2 o2 sensors and had a monumental oil leak fixed at a cost of £300.

    was going well until i drove over a lump of wood at 50 mph in really bad weather, seems it shook up the electronics,, afm quit working after that...

    car wouldnt go at all, so just to let you know ,, i have a volkswagen tdi afm in the merc now. and its going well.. i know its from a diesel as it has a yellow band on it and the green ones are for petrol engines...

    but at £15 it saved me a fortune at the time..


    also can anyone help me put pics on here of my big shiny merc.. cheers

    £340 is cheap for NI...you must be old (even older than me), or live somewhere considered very safe...must be the former.;) The easiest way for pics is to open a Photobucket account (free) and upload to that, then post the url link on here.

    Insurance is a rip off especially for the young uns! Both of you can count yourselves lucky you don't have boys, you could probably add a 1 or 2 to both your prices! A pilot in work is paying over £3000 for his son on a 1.0 corsa!!

    When my daughter was 18 she was offered a Polo for free...had to turn it down because of the £3k premium.

    Sadly teenage girls are about to be classed the same as teenage boys, so I guess I will be paying a lot more next time :(
