    Mercedes GLC

    Which is fantastic given the size of engine but I am looking for something closer to 50mpg which is why I am looking for the smaller engine and the 2020 model now.

    GT.....but 4.2 or 4.7?

    4.7lt everytime for me. It's an awesome sound!

    Car valuation

    I agree, WBAC only ever offer rock bottom pricing so I would never ever use them.....you can do much better elsewhere like ' Motorway' . They offered me within £2k of my market price on Autotrader. So you need to shop around but recognise that Maseratis are not the type of car that these kind...

    Car valuation

    When I was looking to sell my 2009 QP 4.7S essentially for cash, I was offered outrageously low prices, in some cases £7k below market value. This was after having already reduced the price 4 times since June 2019 to a rock bottom price and I still couldnt shift it, despite its excellent...

    Mercedes GLC

    I love the Merc. GLC and in fact having just got rid of my 2009 QP 4.7 S , I was looking to pick up a low mileage version. But sadly I need the smaller engine version to get the economy now. There are a lot of them around just now so the market is very competitive but it is a terrific motor...

    The 50 club

    Wait until you find yourself 2 years off 60...jesus! I found myself listening to The Stranglers, Iggy Pop, The Pretenders , The Cure ( brilliant band!) and The Police this morning on the way to Keswick. Felt like it was only yesterday ( I even recall the lyrics perfectly which is really sad)...

    Caroline Flack RIP

    It's not just newspapers...its social media generally which drives people to these kind of desperate actions. It's so very sad...

    Tyres (don't shoot me)

    Michelin everytime for me!. I would never fit Pirellis ever again after the tyres started cracking between the tread blocks after just 2 years and 7000 miles.They still had 5mm of tread on them before I had to get rid. They seem to be very susceptible to the rubber pershing if you dont use the...

    To be honest I don't think you will be disapointed when you do see it. It's a scream!:D

    Top Gear Presenters

    As I said, it's like Marmite.... ;)

    Top Gear Presenters

    But its no longer just a car show. It's now targeted at a wider audience rather than just us car geeks and it is good old fashioned entertainment which works.... well certainly for me anyway. It's a bit like marmite this one, ( also Grandtour), you either love em or hate em. I really like both...

    Top Gear Presenters

    To be honest I think Top Gear is back to where it used to be....a great entertainment show with 3 very different presenters which weirdly works and works well. Far better than Matt Le Blanc who was a completely useless piece of .... although admittedly he did know something about cars. The...

    But my forum name is 'silvercat'. Reason cos my missus has 2 silver tabby cats so she came up with the name. :eek:

    SM off topic content

    I 100% agree! Even though I am now Maserless after 3 years, I intend to continue to participate in and contribute to what I think is a great forum, with a really wide range of knowledge, experience and views to offer which actually makes this a great place to be involved in. So let's not try and...

    TESLA REMOTELY REMOVING FEATURES

    Yeah.. but imagine how many millions of people around the world wouldnt have a job. And also imagine how much new technology developed on the back of these programmes, we wouldnt have. Every cloud has a silver lining ;)
