    Fair point, and as I said the new ones seem even less solid.

    What do you think of Lexuses ? (Lexi ?! )

    Driven a Jag XF, an E Class and a 5 series. All pretty similar until you get to the silly stuff like the E63.

    That said, the salesman hasn't done his job if he's left any equity in the car.

    If the 300h had a better transmission it would be a good choice.

    Last time we got a new Aygo the salesman had left the floor mats in. Bargain!!! Couldn't find any equity though. Must have taken it out. Grrrr

    Like the "big comfy spacious" Hayabusa that you once owned? The one you had to sell because you were too weedy to lift it off the stand?

    Not to worry, maybe the Merc will come with an old-lady addition that will help you ease the handbrake off.
