Thanks ajd. Looks good, will have to wait and see after I've bought it - must admit I'll miss the M-sport steering wheel, but in comparison to the silver cross pram wheel in the Merc anything will seem better!

Now, anyone have any ideas about sat nav discs? Will search properly using the search function before someone tells me how LOL.

Dammit. Quick update: was made redundant last week so had to cancel the new car! Gutted!

Anyway, let's see what my future employment brings but until then it's the Smart all the way

Still, worse things happen and it gives me even more of an incentive to get working so I can get a new car!

Cheers for all the advice, will be back soon with the next list of potentials (I hope!)

Cheers Danny. I hope so too! I'm very much a positive thinker glass half full kinda person so hope this will carry me through

Let's see what the future brings and where I end up - if it's in the US even better as e92's are a lot cheaper over there

Love it Will. Glad Smart's are welcome but can you imagine the state of it by the time I'd ragged it to a meet at 95+ driving it like a 3? I can almost see the smoke percolating out the engine vents now with a smell of burning oil....

Thanks too Ajd. Onwards and upwards is a phrase of mine, and I'd been on reduced pay anyway to help the company so time to get back to a good fat salary! Let's see how it goes....
