As opposed to a new topic/thread for every news article, all links/discussion can take place here.

he only gets paid out if they don't recover his car! It's possible it'll just turn up a few days later after being used for joy rides or possible other criminal activity.. and the insurance company will be like well there's not really much we can compensate you for.

The meeting place might not have made much difference in this case though.

New c-class coupe reviewed: http://news.drive.com.au/drive/motor...823-1j7e6.html

Priced slightly above the 1er, but less than the 3... and seems to be slightly bigger than a 1er coupe, but smaller than a 3er coupe??

Interested to see how this model will 'fit' in the product range...

mmm whenever i've thought about a merc I always get an impression they are overweight. At lease this one doesn't have the flared rear arches as per the current c class, which IMHO looks absolutely rubbish.

Mind you nothing comes close to the styling of the e92

Only real complaint is the RFT they insist on shipping, but then again you only really notice the gains when you put a set of Michelin super sports
