Afternoon all, for everyone on this side of the atlantic.

Well today i finally got my hands on my shiny black r172 amg sport. I'll get on the datacard as soon as it stops raining,as it would be nice to see what she has got in her.

I have got a smartTop in the post as that seems like a fine bit of kit. Also wondering about rear camera, which from some posts i have read should be doable as she has audio 20+ changer.

I could have sworn the saleman said it had parktronic fitted but so many cars have flashed past i must have been mistaken. Oh previous car was a c class amg sport estate c180.

Any comments or tips are always appreciated and of course do point on if i have missed anything. Thanks for your time
