Diesel estate car or SLK

I am about to do a 2 hour trip out and a 2 hour trip back this afternoon. Do I go in the Astra Estate or the SLK ? Cheaper in the Astra but more fun in the SLK

It'll be difficult to get those sheets of plasterboard in the back of the Astra anyway so you may as well take the SLK...

It would depend on the weather...if it's raining the Astra...sunny and warm definately the SLK!

In any case, be careful and have a nice time!!!!
