If you sell that for something more 'sensible', I will personally drive down and post turds through your letterbox. Regularly.

Seriously though, you would never, ever get that level of build quality from any newer car (not many older cars either) - they are unbelievably nice. Could you not fit an LPG conversion to help out with the running costs?

Are you on any of the Mercedes forums? I'm sure a few there would take an interest. Here's my beast.. W124 E300d 225k and just broken in.

Your AMG Aero-1s are in my top five favourite wheels of all time :D Chrome arches make the baby jesus cry though.

Surely a mistake, would a diesel Focus give you diplomatic immunity?

I would image the trade in value or resale value is minimal - you'd to fork out quite lot of cash to get something similar albeit more frugal on petrol.

it is greener too having an old car as the amount of energy needed to make a new car far outwieghs the older cars lower mpg.

if it is working, then hang on to it and you are saving penguins. once it becomes expensive to ifx, then it the time

Lovely car, but you have done that now and there are so many other cars out there to try.

Winter is on us, ditch it and pick up an old Subaru Estate.

Then use it for your "Viking" funereal when you peg it

Or buy a Kia picanto
