Is it the best way to buy a used Mercedes?
First time in over 20 years that I have not had a company car. I needed a semi decent looking car for my job, which does involve about 25,000 miles per annum. After a look at the obvious 3 Series, A4 and C class, I decided a C class was in order.
I had a free morning today so I got up early and headed out to one of my favorite roads that has 15+ miles of switchbacks, decreasing and increasing radius turns and lots of elevation changes. Nirvana!
Going fast is all well and good and modifying your car to go quicker can be great fun but for me, stopping is also high up on the â€˜importantâ€™ list!
One of the driving forces behind my developing my tuning company, Veloce Performance was that blasted 155 mph speed limiter...
I read somewhere recently that longer-term storage for Mercs was not necessarily a good idea, and that the cars are better for regular use. Of course, I insisted that having the CL locked-up in an air chamber was fine...
Collected, cleaned, cherished.
It's amazing how you can "accidentally" pick up a car by being in the right place at the right time...
Life has been undemanding for the CL600 since the last instalment.
Well, who knew it could take so long to sell a car? Ok, so it's a bit specialist and left hand drive AND leggy, but nearly nine months?
