    As mumbled in the welcome thread, I live about 3 miles from our OP and have seen @GarageOfLukeshuffling about the place too.  I took this photo a couple of weeks ago when I suspected there was a likeminded fella living in the area.

    A good opportunity came up last weekend to upgrade my trailer. I’ve had the Erde 142 since we moved in 2015 and bought purely to move most of our shite to MiL’s to make our house look as minimal and as big as possible. I sold it to an Italian from Bedford for £150 and gave £notmuchmore for this.

    I love it. It’s an Erde but for maximum AS points it’s a grey import. My friend bought it in France from a dealer about 10 years ago. It’s been all over Europe and been given a life of adventure I can only dream of, living all over - including Skye. It features gas struts on the lid, a Runrig sticker that I’m having preserved and advertising for his Ill-fated foray into self catering accommodation in France. 
     


    The best bit is I can actually see it! I didn’t realise how good I actually was at trailer parking. Before, when guessing blind, I found it doable but difficult. Now it’s a doddle. 
    First tip-trip complete and we’re looking forward to some serious campin’ (no G) next year.

    They are just that, guidelines. The offence is going over 30mph.
    Here in Spain, no guidelines or 10% leeway. Get caught doing 31kph in a 30kph limit = a fine.

    Scamera vans almost always point at oncoming traffic.  That way they get video of the vehicle getting "pinged" for speed at a good distance away, then as the car gets closer, they get the registration clearly visible.  They can then use a sucession of stills from the video to show the speed capture (often at up to 1km away), the registration of the vehicle, and then a good image of the driver.
    Ask me how I know.

    I’ve never had a Benz before… an never really got the hype, so maybe it’s time to find out.
    I’d cast the net wide for the search for a winter car, when this popped up nearby. I dismissed it. It really considering a Merc… but when a week later a friend sent me a link to the ad, I had another look. After missing out on a Volvo I wanted, nearly buying a BMW 325, and then discussing some other options on the zoom on Tuesday it came down to a straight shoot between this and a diesel 75, and this just seemed heaps betterer. 
     

    Yes… that’s 56k, backed up with service history and mots. It drives beautifully, and is very very comfortable! Very little rust, just a small blob or two on the rear of the arch.
    Fingers crossed this might be a rather nice steer!

    That looks very nice and not yet run in. I also had never considered a Mercedes and always fancied a Rover 75 but was put off by them being front wheel drive,  I have driven over 3,000 miles in my Mercedes since buying it in July and am still impressed by how nice it is to drive, even better since I had new tyres fitted yesterday. Very good choice.
