Hey,
This is my first post. I have just ordered a 250 CDI AMG Sport. Previously I drove a petrol 2007 Honda Civic Type S. I was fortunate to get a 2013 250 with only 5000 miles on the clock with Comand and a few other bits. Performance wise the 250 CDI has a better to 0-60 time, peviously 8.9 secs. The CDI is cheaper to tax and fuel, my previous road tax was €650 and now it will reduce to €280. If I get anything over 45 mpg in the 250 I will be happy. Must admit the Civic was very reliable and I hope the 250 is the same! However my insurance has increased a bit but I suppose thats expected as the car is worth more.
Regards,
Rob.

Hi Rob, welcome from Barrhead, Scotland. :smile:

Some tips to make your visit here more enjoyable:
If you haven’t, please use the 'search' feature at the top right of the page for your questions as they have probably been asked before. Remember, ‘Search’ is your friend.
If you wish to become PM (Private Message) capable, you need 15 posts. To get those 15 posts quickly, just go to the ‘New members introduce yourself here’ section and welcome enough new members to obtain your needed posts to PM.
Want to post a picture? Start a new thread or make a post, click ‘edit’, click on the ‘paper clip’ or ‘advanced’ and/or ‘manage attachments’ then ‘choose file’ then ‘upload’ and ‘submit’! If Iphone pics, you need to rename any additional pics as Iphone names its pics all the same, image.jpg.
Want to ‘like’ or thank’ someone’s comments? Use the ‘like’ button to the right or the ‘Thanks’ button, bottom right of any post you like. This saves you having to comment.
New members should be aware that the 'New Posts' link next to the 'Search' link top right of the info bar is a great way to see all of the posts you have missed since you were on the forum last. Remember to click 'mark forums read' under ‘quick links’ when you leave.

Hey guys,
Thanks for the replies. I do about 70% motorway driving so I should get closer to the published MPG vs town journeys. Collecting the car from the dealer next week. Looking forward :)
Rob
