So what are your 2013 car plans then?

My plans to replace the Lupo with something bigger went well :grin:

I was expecting to keep the Lupo for tinkering with later, but it died to force my hand on the replacement front and so I think it'll be going to a scrappy unless someone else wants to drop a 1.8T or 1.9TDi in it...

Matt - colour and spec. Very serious option with a 20vT in it :D

Black and a 1.0E, so no options or electric gubbins weighing it down ;) I've even got a few sets of wheels for it in the shed.

So, early 2013 & I ditch my 335d Coupe for an MCS (d) :secret: which was then fairly swiftly replaced by an B8 Avant 2.0TDi Quattro S-Line Black Edition (S-tronic), which is about to be replaced by an RS4. Quite a quiet year for me so far..... :o

Was originally looking at a C200 or C250 Estate, but being 32 have realised that death isn't quite as imminent as this car would suggest so am now looking to change a 2012 Juke for a mark VI Golf Gti....

Noooooooooooo never go back, it will never be the same

Was talking about this the other day with someone - I love the 205 and S4 and have absolutely no plans to change right now - but if either were written off or stolen, there is no way I'd buy the same again, I'd buy something newer or different rather than try to replace what I already had

This has been wracking my mind loads. It's the car I miss the most. What other car , no matter the price can put such massive smiles on 4 faces at nice ? An FF ? A c-black ? A csl is sheer epic brilliance. If the oppertunity comes up to buy my old car agin, I think I might ...

Yep, all this week, although driving the 458 today :)

If you're thinking of building a collection of modern era track day classics, a CSL would be an epic start! Just be wary that such a collection will quickly absorb every penny you earn. :grin:

Have you seen the new m4 ? That looks ace. Not sure on turbo power, everything I have driven with a turbo sounds **** and has a rubbish delivery. I still want the csl more. Fancy getting one and taking the csl, 458 and m3 to the Evo triangle to see what they can do. Csl, the best car I have owned on so many levels. Fun factor 20 out of 10.

If you meant a question mark rather than a full stop then let me be the first person to say yes. Not bothered which I get either ...

Well, dealer didn't want to play with the GT3 RS. Pity, if it sits much longer it'll need a major service and replace a pile of the seals (it's been in their show room for almost 2 years - done maybe 800km in that time).

So today I drove a current spec C63 AMG Coupe in Magnetite Black with the panoramic roof and 7-speed M-DCT. Had 30 km on it when I got the key... :cool:

Made an offer for that specific car...

Going back tomorrow morning (they are open this Sunday to launch the new E-Class here) to return some receipts they had stapled to the back of my printed brochure, in my mate's V8 Vantage as he broke his foot and she needs a run. +++

What interior has it got? Any other options Rachel?

Could you do me a favour and take a couple of pictures of the Magnetite C63, I've not actually seen one in the flesh yet :)

Not sure you'll get the full impression from a photo. But I have seen a saloon in Magnetite and can confirm it's absolutely feckin gorgeous. +++
