Collecting large German - now ML55AMG thread


Recommended Posts

Home from rock concert (work) at 11.30 last night, alarm went off at 6am. Joy.

Quiet streets. Power walk to the station because I should probably have got up earlier.


Local station achieved with 10 minutes to spare because I power walked too hard. End of the line…



Breakfast: not yet

PC: zero and hoping to stay that way until home

Trying to work out the station.  That's the Longbridge to Four Oaks line, via Birmingham New street I think? Houses in first picture look like Sellyoak or Kings Norton or Stirchley ? 

Start of the line, Redditch 

Big station now achieved;

Daft question then is that 1st picture St George's Road ? Or in that general part of town ? 

Evesham Road towards the Headless Cross end, very close to my house. I know what you mean though, looks very similar, I’m sure it dates from the same period.

Normally would ask, are you back yet. But with this will ask. Have you filled up yet? 

Yes, and no, amazingly. HMC had kindly/accidentally left enough in to get me home, just. I’ll put a full tank in on morning, bracing my wallet now. 

Question for the group, should I run it on E5/super or just regular, will it matter? I normally don’t bother, but also I don’t normally own “performance” vehicles

Very good cars and you've made the right move going for a pez version. 

They had a really bad rep years ago but totally unjustified and most of the major issues have an easy workaround. 

I really fancied this at the time but with my mileage I couldn't even consider it. 

Still the ultimate all round car IMO, and fair play can they stand up to a good bump. 

Ace off road too compared to the hapless X5, have a YouTube for a good laugh, ours drove in the snow exactly the same as in the dry.
