Pissing down in Glasgow and there are people on this thing...

Glasgow to Edinburgh train is rammed solid. Hateful.

Is there no end to the stupidity of the general public?  Hope you'll be free of them going home!

Well there would only be room for one more in the car, it's has less than half the seating capacity of what I'm used to. (Slight clue here)

That looks nice. Unfortunately, it doesn't look like you'll get much chance to get the top down. Bit damp and blowy out there. 

Aye it was absolutely tipping it down all the way up the M74.

It's a cracker though, drives beautifully and everything works from what I can tell although the Mercedes CD player doesn't like home made CDR discs so I had to suffer Radio 2 on the way home until I could simply take no more and listened to the tyres instead.

Here's a few more pics from the eBay ad. They flatter it a wee bit, there's a bit of laquer peel on the bonnet but it seems OK bar that.

  • Spiny Norman changed the title to Collection caper - New Car Day! Another SLK joins the fold.

It was such a crap day weather wise I didn't take any pics myself, apart from this one shot taken at Abingdon Services. I had hoped my bladder would last all the way from Cramlington to Glasgow but I'm not a young man anymore...

I loved mine, such an interesting car. Not enough seats for me though and it just ended up sat in my garage.

Enjoy!

Quite a bit different from a Saab 9-5 Aero that's for sure. For one thing when I got home I discovered I can park again! 😛

I have the same stereo in my C180. I have just ordered but not fitted a jumper harnesses that has an aux in and a Bluetooth module that's supposed to work on the 6 disc changer input.

I've got a couple of newer ones I could fit including a fancy Pioneer Bluetooth/USB  thing that already has a tiny 64Gb drive in it, I might ft that eventually. It won't look as god as the proper Mercedes unit and it's not as if I've not got hundreds of CDs to use, I just like making 'mix tapes' of various stuff for the car.

if you are planning on swapping head units those MB CDs are not standard size (slightly bigger) so you need an adapter
