That's a bold choice of interior, but the red contrasts well with the black dash etc. Looks great.

I won’t lie - the colour might take some getting used to - but I always think about to the white Merc which looked great in the summer sun.

Car is so loaded it’s scary - still finding stuff - but heated seats, sat nav, I can play my Spotify and music via Bluetooth, xenons, auto dipping mirrors, etc, etc.

Popped in to see Ed with it last night ... and whilst a bold choice, it was looking good.

Great news. You now need a new wardrobe to match the upholstery.

Enjoy the new car - looks like the perfect weekend for it.

The colour scheme doesn’t look half as outrageous in the flesh - but I will give up that it’s as out there as i’d Be happy going Neutral

Car is perfect, except the wheels - so will get refurb’d.

Whole lot need painting - lacquer is pealing ....

Black, grey or silver ???

(I am thinking grey)

White car - Black or Silver alloys. Grey won't look good IMHO

Ordinarily I would disagree ....

But, given the circumstances, I will agree in this instance ...

Nice motor. I know what you mean about the colour, but after a few times, you won't really notice it. My mate has got a white 118d saloon with the red leather interior. It's really nice.

Thanks, mate .... very pleased with it so far .... and i’m loving the noise ...

I’ll review it at some point - as with all things, it’s not perfect ...

Won’t be as fast as yours - not slow - but I would imagine strapping a turbo to it would make it savage .....

Still be very interested to try yours ....

Well, yours is small and red .... and mines bigger and white ....

Oh, the cars ...

Most annoying thing so far is the kids struggle to get their seat belts on, which is going to be a pain in the arse on the school run mornings. ....

Spec is pretty high - keep finding things - electric folding mirrors, roof goes down on the keys, etc.

Lk, there is no such thing as the perfect car because they are all compromised in some way, be it transporting kids, performance, economy etc.

Oh, I know ....

Assuming it’s not so impractical it’s not going to work, compromises don’t bother me so long as the car puts a smile on my face ...
