Hope the Merc serves you well Weds :y

Obviously, everyone expects pictures ;)

I did put some pics up a few weeks ago.. But I'll post them again.. Its an E350 and a quick one with 265bhp and 630nm, they can be chipped to 310bhp and 750nm. The flappy paddles are a waste of time, gear stick on the steering column took a little getting used too, just put it in D and away you go. Its doing about 32mpg at the moment. Hopefully it'll improve when I stop using the throttle too much. Better rear leg room and boot space (just) than the Omega.

I've owned Vauxhalls for more than 35 years, I've just sold my Omega 3.2 Elite estate and bought a Mercedes E class estate to replace it, sad to see it go, I've owned it for 10 years and its been very reliable. There had been many threads about a suitable replacement and the Mercedes seemed to be one of the favourites... 

But I'll still keep a check on here to see whats going on...

Just trying to list the ones I've had from memory..

A lovely car ..... certainly a contender as a replacement for my R Class ...... not sure they're heavy enough for my  caravan though .....
Is the interior proper leather? Or Merc's finest Artico?

I believe its Mercedes finest fake leather...  Very hard to tell them apart..

Give it time ...... I'm  on a phone so cant post a picture, but my seat cracked. I'll  post a picture later of the before & after ;)



100 later .....


Thats a good repair..

E Class will tow 2100 kgs ;)

Only point to mention, the diesel V6 requires adblue.

Most modern oil burners do now ;)
True enough, only mentioned it as Weds might not have been told ;)

No I hadn't been told, but it doesn't come as a surprise.. We used to use it in our boilers at work, we called it urea, it smelled of cows piss, lovely to work with  :(
I suppose Adblue has a nicer ring to it...

Why is it necessary? What is it's purpose?

It converts the harmful NOx into nitrogen and steam..

Some of the stuff Colin Furze does is mental, but fun...

Agreed.  :y  He must have a good engineering head on him to link stuff up, and clearly too much time on his hands.  ;D

I suspect with his Youtube popularity he might have a team behind him...

Very nice indeed. I've fancied these since they came out.

What engine size is it?

Regards

Steev

Its an E350 3ltr Diesel around 264 BHP, never been a diesel lover but i was surprised how quiet it is, very smooth.. And quick  :)

Urgh, its one of them polluting diesels, about time they banned them, does it have full Europe sat nav, or just the old 1940 map which stops at Stalingrad. :D

No E63 at the dealers. ;D

Unfortunately a diesel, hard to find a reasonably sized petrol, the E63 is just too much but they are fun. Been driven around the track at Mercedes World at Brooklands by one of their drivers. They do go...

Some inside pics... No gear stick is a bit strange, its all on a stalk on the steering wheel. Handbrake is foot operated, not that I use mine much..

Smart 8) hopefully with fully electric front seats :y

Its a mix of electric and manual, I tried to find one with the memory seat option but there hard to find. Unlike the Omega elite with every option ticked there is so much in the Mercedes that are optional extras and probably expensive ones at that.

So that is still the case then. Interesting. I had brand new company C Class Merc estate back in 1997 and I was amazed that I had to fit my own radio. No radio was supplied, although the speaker system was installed. It was like going back to my first brand new Ford Escort Mk1, when you had to fit your own radio. But then no position in the dashboard was available for one.

So pay a premium for a Merc and then have to fork more for the toys. But I would have one anyday ;)

They don't seem to do model with all the toys already installed (unlike the Elite) I expect the price would put people off. This one has a lovey big sat nav screen with voice recognition but no reversing camera, again that would appear to be an option, you can get one fitted but there around 400.

I've owned my current Omega Elite Estate for around 11years, thought it was time for a change, the posts on this forum have helped somewhat in making my choice so today I purchased a Mercedes E class estate.. It's a 3ltr oil burner and its pretty nippy  :D

I'll shortly have my Omega up for sale in a few weeks if anyone is interested..
I've enjoyed my time on this forum and don't intend to stop contributing where I can..

Has anyone else seen this news item today:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-gloucestershire-39456449

I still cannot decide if it is a great April Fools, or if it is actually all true ;D ;D

I think you'll find its true, the poor guy got so much stick for parking his car in camera shot it was vandalised, I thought he'd changed it to a more subtle colour
