    Not at all, I quite like some of them apart from Diesel SUV. Friend has an 04 996 Turbo Cab. Very nice. Not sure that most offer any more than an Audi and they aren’t that special.

    Picking it up on Friday. :)
    Plenty of photos will be taken and best ones will be posted. :D
    I frequently look for a potential photo opportunity with my cars....always searching for that one perfect shot.....and thanks to mobile phone camera technology this is much easier than it used to be. :)

    Is that the old A45s too? Tbf the RS4 is nearly 1800kg however for the Merc to be faster is some accomplishment.

    If you have any doubts about which is the latest shape A Class, the new one is instantly recognisable by the "panamericana" grille.
    Also only the new one is called an A45 S, the old one was simply A45.

    That A45s does have some serious pace, and not just launch. But how annoying is Archie

    Absolutely loving it mate :icon thumright:

    I've had it nearly 4 months now so plenty of time with the car now.

    It was a perfect replacement for the RS3 and feels just as special - more so atm with it being so new.

    Exterior and interior it has the wow factor and with my RS3 being a pre-fl, it also feels insanely fast covering 0 to 62 half a second faster.

    I'm really enjoying playing around with the dash configurator and having boost gauges and g meters on the screen lol :)

    So yeah overall very very happy thanks.

    This is an interesting comparison too .....

    Funny you should mention that as I was wondering the same thing the other day :)
    I suspect it is around the £500 mark tbh ... I'm sure I checked just before getting the car but can't remember exactly.
    I think any car over £40k now is around this mark so hard to avoid with such a low capping value.

    Yeah I have not seen another one so certainly enjoying the rarity & not that many reported new owners on the a class forum.
    Perhaps more will start to filter in as times goes on.

    £41 per month for me, didn't want to give the ****** government all that money up front. Pay them enough tax as it is. Grump over.

    I hate paying the higher band tax I suppose it just something I would have to get used to. I bought a Mk5 R32 back in 07 and was gob smacked when I had to pay £400 for a years tax maybe its me being tight :whistle2: looking at them the other day and the tax as now jumped to £570 a year :wtf:

    That is the CLA I would have bought if I could afford it.......but would have cost me about an extra £20k. :openmouth:

    Lol without a doubt it would .

    I always try and pay around 50% deposit which helps keep the payment low .

    I was of that mind set last year but then had to bite the bullet if I wanted a new car so it is what it is ... it’s a rip off but we can’t do a lot about it can we.
