  1. About 600hp and over 1000nm of torque. Through a four speed auto (reinforced obvs). It was bloody insane and brilliant.
  2. Same. I wish I'd known about them before they became valued at £NOPE moneys.
  3. It's a bit of an archaic engine to be fair (no bad thing). 3.2 18v, seems to be more thirsty than 24v six pot engines I've driven. I did 200 miles on mostly NSL dual carriageways with traffic with no hypermiling, and achieved 30mpg. But it was only used for town runs in the dead of winter and was on 15mpg. The 3.0 24v Omega MV6 was a few mpg higher on comparable journeys. I think a straight six BMW would probably do even better. Neither of those have the wodge of torque that arrives with the Mercedes though. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  4. The rear parking sensors are not, as far as I know, audio-based. There are light bars on the roof and on the dash, and they light up green, amber, red etc as you get closer to the car or surface you are reversing or driving up to. You should be able to see the light bars easily in the rear view mirror. I can't answer the SBC questions, other than to confirm that the car's done that since my dad picked it up and it hasn't been mentioned by any of the garages that have had the car in for MOT or servicing since. I'm glad it's served you well on your trip back south-east.
  5. This model postdates the 'avoid sharp glances or it will collapse into a pile of particles' era of Mercedes build quality. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk

  7. Will people be as likely to fondly remember this unnecessarily cheerful-faced gurning lump of crossover in 30 years? Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  8. Someone buy this absolute unicorn of a thing and I guarantee* to buy it off you as soon as I can stump up the funds. https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-details/202306299089470 Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  9. Woof. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  10. The same thing happened to me in 2005 with a 1989 T-bar in light blue. I'm staggered this car still has atoms left that resemble a car.
  11. Perhaps 'unnecessary' is a more apt term, but take your pick from almost anything shown here. It'll be fantastic* buying one out of warranty. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  12. A somewhat obscure doom blue FWD V8 Yank barge? I'm afraid there's probably a law that says you must. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  13. Yeah, my Mk2 Insignia is colossal but with one Isofix seat for my 21 month old and a very large belt-fitted seat for my three year old (she still faces backwards which will be changing soon) there's no chance of anyone going in the middle of them. Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
  14. Did that last all of two days? Sent from my SM-G960F using Tapatalk
