Greetings,
I am Stug from deepest darkest Wiltshire, where stone henge is ( for our American colleagues)
I recently survived a horrific accident which shattered my pelvis in 42 pieces. I managed to regain the ability to walk etc but was in constant pain whilst using my Z4 coupe. So sadly had to sell it and face the future without a sports car in my life...
Recently I have been looking as sports cars again, admiring but accepting that I couldn't own and use one without severe pain. However I kept coming back to a picture of a polar White slk with amg pack.
Last week I decided to "get the longing out of my system" and booked a test drive with MB Swindon, (what's another day of pain?)
Wow.. What a revelation.. It didn't crash into pot holes like my Z4 , the seating position made entry and exiting the car easy and pain free, the whole drive (2hours) was an absolute pleasure. I left the showroom elated.. My sports car days weren't over!!
Yesterday I bought the car I was lusting over a 250 cdi polar white amg. Just 10 months old with only 4000 miles.
I am a very happy chap.

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.

Welcome for the headwaters of Zekiah Swamp, So MD, USA.
I had owned a Z4 back a few cars or so. It felt cramped and was unbearable for long distance rides (>3-4 hours). I am happy to hear the your new ride fits your needs!

Welcome from Washington, DC.

Fabulous color choice. :) If not already done, try enabling the Easy Entry/Exit feature; this automatically moves the steering wheel up out of the way making it much easier to get in and out of the car.

Howdy, glad you found a car that still gives you your sports car fix, with comfort. I noticed an HD Wide Glide in Other Toys, are you still able to ride?
