Looks like Wiltshire had better weather than Yorkshire today - hope it's on the way up to us (what a rubbish month for rain May's been this year ). Got a new grille and detailing a week ago and she's been under the covers since
washing and polishing is for meets
That looks stunning Trev. Thank you for posting those beautiful shots….funny thing that, when the Mrs is with me I often get up to about 28mpg!Had a day "Out, Out" yesterday - A sunny May Bank Holiday Sunday, so just a case on avoiding the traffic jams....
Heading West, as predicted the cloud started to burn off by "Hungerford" through the "Savernake Forest" before working our way down to "Salisbury Plain":

Had the prospect of a two hour drive home - Leaving later paid dividends, with only slow traffic past "Ringwood" but other wise a good run home.. Though always amazes Me how I get better mpg when the Cheif Navigator is on-board.....!!

Thanks, it not AMG55. It's only the AMG Line, SLK200....but I think I will mount a boot spoiler.Nice 55AMG pictures
But no boot spoiler?
I guess it was named by an Estate Agent..??
Bit like when I flew over "Greenland" to the US - Clearly looked white from the 40,000 feet...!!
