    Yep. And it looks good.

    Didn’t really look at anything other than what it looks like.

    If its to replace the Merc I'd look at a Ghibli diesel instead. The QP is huge with most of the extra space being in the rear. Its the same diesel engine in the Ghibli but less to lug around.

    I now need to go and have a lie down because I've said something positive about a diesel Ghibli.

    I do think it is a prettier car than the Ghibli but it needs a V8 and it will continue to depreciate. Ewan's QP 5 sounds a steal even if it is blue !!!

    Don’t worry it wouldn’t be to replace the GTS.

    I’ve just seen the new Merc CLS. Which I think looks awesome, especially as there will be a CLS 400 diesel with 340bhp.
    So will have a look at one of them after Christmas.

    Guaranteed to lose 80% of your cash in 3 years though. Mercs plummet in value.

    Not the same as a QP but I drove a Diesel Ghibli and it was boring. zzzzzzzzzz
