    As I pulled into the garage my lights turned on and the drivers side advised it had enough and couldn’t go on. I had a spare Osram as my passenger side failed last summer.

    Once you know you need a jack and a wheel brace it’s not too bad a job to change a headlight bulb...

    Not me but a white AMG travelling in excess of 130mph down the centre line along the A507 single carriageway near Baldock with many other cars on the road, some with children inside. Sounded great but honestly Bud!!!!

    How do you know it was doing more than 130mph, sometimes speed is deceiving.

    SWMBO wants it (she has a crappy A4 2.0 TDi SE Estate) so maybe an E estate or CLS SB, really don't know, had it for 4 years now but it runs perfectly and has no issues

    Like most 204's Imo they are one of the great mb designs. Few common issues, really good to drive and super reliable.

    Will need brake lines and new lower front suspension arms but apart from that is superb and I really can't fault it in any way, with the OM646 up front it is awesome which is part of the problem, do I go for a CLS SB or 2016 on E Wagon in 350CDi guise?????

    So true! I have 10 parking bays outside my office and I always park in the end one (normally only two staff cars use it). But, should anyone comr to visit us, you can bet your bottom dollar that they park right next to mine! Very annoying :)

    The E class will be cheaper to buy than the CLS and slightly smaller as well , especially as you are going up from a C class anyway .

    Didn't do anything to her today - even though it needs a damn good wash after driving down seriously narrow Hampshire Country lanes!

    But I did receive this from my good lady yesterday when I got home!

    And as it says - "If you don't own one you'll never understand"..... [​IMG]
