I felt like a 5 year old the night before Christmas last night... I was lying awake for ages wide awake just wishing today would come that little bit faster!!! Now I'm watching the clock tick down until I can go get the car.
Well I've got it and I really can't say enough about how much I love it! The engine is superb - powerful but smooth and when cruising, very quiet. The gearbox is utterly seamless and under general use you just cannot feel the changes. As for the ride comfort it is very good, all this crap from the journos whining about the rock solid suspension is rubbish, its firm no doubt but I think very comfy.
I am beginning to believe the press have got something against MB and the A Class. After the initial (poor) reviews, there seems to be hardly a mention of the A Class in the motoring press despite it being a significant player in the market and quite a challenge to the 1 series and A3. Fishy!
