    New (to me) Motor

    The old XJR finally succumbed to the car cancer which is rust, and failed its test last year.

    Having given me much pleasure I was happy to let her go to a scrappy who had a buyer lined up for the engine, which will outlast the body three times over!

    I thought about getting a new stable-mate for the ever reliable workhorse Navara;

    But finally decided to replace both with something which is slightly less practical than the latter and even quicker than the former;

    an ML63 AMG

    When I can once again afford two motors this will be replaced with a V8 Range Rover and an XKR, but, until then, this is a lot more fun than a bus this size has any right to be.
    I don't want to be a product of my environment, I want my environment to be a product of me.

    How's your mother?

    We all are, act accordingly.

    Can't get over the fact that I thought it accelerated really fast, then you put it into sport mode

    What with the seat coolers and Dawn sitting in the back watching the adult channel

    Nice set of wheels, but the price of those tyres may stop you from getting the other toys.

    It could be worse, at least the 19" ones are cheaper than the 22s
