Quite.

I look and can only think that that's what Wayne Rooney will buy next. I'm clearly not their target market.

I can't speak for BMW or Audi, but the last Mercedes cars built like tanks were probably of the W201(190E)/W124(E Class)/R129(SL) era. Then the accountants took over.

I think there's a lot of truth here and there's an age thing as well. I think we are the product of our upbringing and environment and mine was the seventies. However irrational it is, I just can't...

I’ve freshened up an engine bay in a car I was returning to the lease company with an aerosol of tyre shine. But I’d use a strong concentration of KC Plast Star on a car I was keeping.

Derek,
