There are some electrical issues though. Like it won't lock consistently from the key fob. And the driver's side wing mirror won't fold. And the passenger's side seatbelt extender doesn't work. And there's an airbag error on the dash. And the driver's side headrest won't go up and down. Some slight vibration under braking too so could be a warped disc.

This is a stupid idea! :D

While reading this, I have quite literally only just realised why you sent me that picture yesterday. I genuinely thought you were complaining about some other knobber parking in your space.

I'm a dick.

A massive dick

I was young, I needed the money etc.

Is the Merc the biggest car you've owned? Looks like it's a fair bit bigger than a Type-R ;)

It's not that big, only a coupe. But probably still yeah!

It's also the first automatic, first V6 and first car with more than 200bhp I've owned!

Ooh, red bits on the seats :) Amusing to me that it came from a BMW dealer at some point ;)

Looks like a nice place to be inside - very different car to the Type-R though, why the change?

Wanted something a bit more grown up. The Civic was loud even when driving it sensibly.

I should be able to get £2.5k for the Civic so I'll use that £1k balance to get some of the niggles fixed.

Sorry what do you drive again, Mark?

I loved your MX-5. Should've stuck with that.

I'm always a bit suspicious of air fresheners in modern cars because they shouldn't smell of anything, so I automatically assume they're there to cover something up.

In Oman, 20 years back, the valet services offered "New Car Smell" or "Baby powder" as a finishing touch.

Going over to BMW in Hook on Sunday morning to take a good look over this 5GT - finance application etc. is already approved and ready to go.

I was hoping to take the car on Sunday, but they need more time to sort that out - but, in a "dealer providing good service" shocker, to save me having to make another 3-4 hour journey back down to them to pick the car up, they're going to deliver it to me on Wednesday next week. Assuming I like it, obvs.

Which I will. It's not normal for me to do this amount of research before buying a car, feels oddly... nice. Unless there's something horrifically wrong with the car, all of the dotted lines will be signed on Sunday :)

Well, that's my bit of trying to put cat among pigeons for entertainment ruined. Dance, you swines, dance!

Or would, if someone hadn't taken the steering wheel off.

Personally, I'd be well chuffed if she was fighting me for the keys. I reckon you should have said steering wheel reinstated Jem! Go girl. :D

Sal said she'd only learn to drive if I bought an automatic. So I've called her bluff.

Fair do's! :D
You see some crazy stuff on the road... I once saw a Bac Mono single seat racer on the road (on its way to Oulton presumably; we live within 3 miles of the circuit I'm happy to say), so low to the ground I seriously doubt your average lorry driver would even see it, and a classic 'Ducktailed' 911 2.7 Carerra RS (about a million quids worth, Mrs C has the "Carerra RS" logo tatooed on her lower back in precisely the correct classic Porsche font :D ) on the same day.

Also saw a Superdry Morgan 3-wheeler the other day as well..... what an absurd car but I want one really badly to confirm my "Toad of Toad Hall" status around here. Magnificently English; 'poop poop' etc. :D
