When I allow myself to browse the trader, thinking I might want a new car, the filters I tick are estate, diesel and auto. Horses for courses.

That's like looking for a 'lady escort' ::) and only ticking the boxes marked overweight, bad skin, vaginal discharge. ;)

I like (and try) to enjoy everything, regardless of how mundane it is. :y

If, in a parallel universe, you and I swapped our cars, I would realise, the minute I got home, that yours would be of no practical use to me at all. Like I said, horses for courses. Practical estate for me, mid life crisis for you.

I believe the new BMW M3 is going to be available in estate form, and with 4 wheel drive. With 500 BHP it should be entertaining to drive but also appeal to the pragmatist. :y

Obviously not a planet killing derv though.

Still, two out of three ain't bad as the fat singer said. :y

The repairs on your Mercedes cost more than a practical used car  ;D

Sorry, but I don't do common sense or pragmatism.

I'd rather not know. :)

Well, she is back home with a new driver door C/L mechanism. I asked how much the work would have cost if out of warranty.

£500-£600 including the code reading to make a diagnosis.


I pay around £1000 PA......but there will of course be exclusions as to what is covered. :-\

The CLS 500 was a money pit and thrown together by a bunch of lazy krauts. It looked good but was slow and unreliable.

The Jag(s) have been much better.  Better made, far faster, and more reliable. You can't beat brummie communists if you want a good car. ;D

Quite right.  :y 

Alpina B3 Touring fits the bill on all of those.  :y

A pretend racecar in a style over substance estate.

Sounds like just the thing for the middle aged divorce who has crashed his new motorbike, and the much younger girlfriend traded up while he was in hospital.

What if he's a happily married guy, with a well paid job or has inherited, or both. Isn't he/she entitled to want to drive a nice car rather than a shed.  :-\  We don't have to pay for that persons car so it shouldn't bother us what they drive.  :-\

Oops, that should be D3 Touring,  :-[  not that it's particularly relevant.  ::)  Wouldn't want to end up with one of those nasty uneconomical petrol things would we.  ::)
