Its wonderful Millsy. I pick up my Red A180AMG Sport on Friday afternoon.
These pics are making me both anxious and excited.

Red in my opinion is certainly an eye catcher

Falsealarm my colleage had accidentally set the speed limiter, it was showing LIM in the display which he wrongly thought was limp mode
(didn't know it had this) the kind gentleman from MB pointed this out when he rang them .

Really enjoyed the drive home last night, Mrs Millsy was thrilled when I pulled up on drive, took my time getting home managed to get the driving percentage up to 73% with theacceleration and smoothness maxed out
.

The leather seat are amazing, most comfortable car I've ever driven, ride isn't too hard I'd say it's on par with the Leon FR i had previously.


It'sdefinitely a head turner, one guy in the street mouthed to his mate ' Look at that Merc',obviously power is down compared to the FR but if you want a cheap company car tax then it's sacrifice well worth making.

Millsy, after you run it in, take it on a nice twisty road put it in Sport and hammer it - you will be quite surprised how much ground you cover. I did just that on Sunday and although you have to work it a bit engine wise - the handling is quite brilliant and you really can maintain a good speed through bends. I was following (not too closely) a flashy large Audi and he knew I was there but he could not for life of him get any more distance - childish I know!! Wife (her car) told me that too :-(( Do I care... NOPE!
