That was nifty, finding that!, quite some time ago I went on a civil service two day course in London & the digs they gave me was in Acton, I was there two nights, & was woken at 5am both mornings by commuters starting their cars, they were nose to tail all down the street, so lots of manouvering, what a racket!!

I got it three days ago & I drove it into town today for the first time to get the groceries, sweet , drives like a dream, it's deceiving, after the Audi & four other 2l cars I've owned, I thought a 1.4 would be sluggish, not a bit of it, yes the acceleration wasn't so responsive but once it was up to thirty, no probs, I was at seventy before I realised, dropping back to forty, as speed cameras operate on that route, yes, I'm very pleased with it, [& 13,000 is a modest price for a Merc] plus, I enjoyed the looks when people noticed the Mercedes emblem, there aren't many 'A' class on the island.

Yes, I've not seen many A classes around, they certainly are different, I'm glad you like it.

As you can see quite a few would disagree with you, it's so manouverable, it weighs a third less less than the Audi, steering is light & responsive, it takes a little while longer to get to 60mph, but when it does, wow!, it was clocked at 130mph on the Mercedes test track, & of course it's slightly unusual shape was evolved after many hours in their wind tunnel like all their models.

it is prolly decieving because i bet the audi weight a fair bit yet that would be much lighter than the audi
oh and when i first saw one of them i didnt believe it was a merc i was like what was that a merc badge on that car , kind of strange when someone says merc i think of big executive cars like this

I think that younger people pay far too much, whew, both yours are high, at least there's one advantage to growing old! I've got 9 years protected no claims bonus, god knows what it'd be without that!
its not just the age you live on the isle of wight i suppose you get a big discount for that as well and your 9 years no claims bonus , thats a long time , my ddad has a simmilar ammount he ha sonly ever had one accident which was aages ago when he first passed his test

How I wish I had the ability to edit every post authored by you so I could correct your run-on sentances.
