I'm hoping this may be a safer bet than the BMW route and those SMG gearboxes but you can never tell.

I'm aware the main potential issue would be the air ride suspension but I have money aside in case. Not gone into it unaware, just hopeful haha.

Very nice car, although I don't fancy your fuel bills.
I can't imagine too many people have swapped from a megane to a V8 CLS!

Someone on Facebook said the same. Looked him up, turns out to be an Italian born engine builder. Adds a bit more character to the car!'

It's a bold if not strange jump but hey, I don't like to conform!

Well as long as he wasn't too 'Italian' with my car it's fine!

I bought an AMG not an Alfa! Haha

Thought I'd pop up an update to the thread since the car was cleaned by me today and given a top up of protection.

You can tell she was looked after by a detailer before I got my hands on her...











Mascot is enjoying his felt lined door pocked! haha
