I think they have E280 on the boot lid usually , his son said it’d just been serviced , I was surprised to find a bill for £790 in the history , it’s been done every year , first 5 at Mercedes then at a Mercedes specialist.

it’s so comfortable to drive and takes off like a stabbed rat if you mash the throttle at the lights

I found a space in the boot where the cd changer could‘ve been but there’s just a metal cage , not found anything to do with headrests

I'd get a new women if I were you, it would be far easier!

If that's aimed at me I don't want another one , at my age I'd probably just rent if this fell apart

A line in Jack Reacher when he was chatted up by what he thought was a prostitute

Sorry I can't afford you

I'm NOT a hooker

In that case I really can't afford you

Just the thought of a younger woman with kids, or one who wants kids sends me into a cold sweat

Sprogs, mate, you defiantly don't want to get involved with those things at our age..
Cars, holidays and spending money on yourself is the way forward!

A guy I used to work with had a woman who was in her late 20s when he was in his late 40s , by his early 50s she was proper broody , he said no so she dumped him, 6 months later they were back together and she was pregnant , he'd be 55 when it was born, I couldn't imagine starting all that again at that age .

Mine doesn't even know the registration number of her car, when it's needed she goes outside and takes a pic of it. I think I can remember 75% at least of all reg's of every car I've had.

ONC955W
HLS626S
A600OFO (wish I still had that one)
HLN958N
GXI3738
KAZ4221
C100BNF (which I still had this one too)
A13KEB (ditto!)
FD55UCV

It's nowhere near 75% - need to stop sniffing Ajax....
I had a period about 10 years ago where I went through a lot of cars , only one at a time but some only lasted weeks , a couple , days

highlight was when mrs wack rang me from the Asda car park because she couldn’t remember what she’d driven there in
