2006 our second
Mitsubishi Pinin 1.8 I  won
on eBay.  Hilary used this
for work for 4 years.  An
excellent car.
2006 a cheap Audi 80b 1.8 TD.  I had my
AMG C36 and I needed a cheap car to
run over the winter.  Bought it from a
Lithuanian in Boston, Lincs. Cost £725.  
The car had a crumbly steering wheel
and the handling/road holding was so
much worse than a Merc, not impressed.
2005 a cheap Mitsubishi Pajero 2.5D.  I
had my AMG C36 and I needed a cheap
car to run over the winter.  Bought it from
HaverfordWest. Cost £1,500.  Apart from
a small issue it ran like a dream.
2004 a cheap Volvo V70 2.4T
Petrol Turbo Auto.  I had my
AMG C36 and I needed a
cheap car to run over the
winter.  Bought it locally for
only £115.  I used the Volvo all
winter, it needed 1 pint of
water every 300 miles
otherwise ran perfectly.
2004 a cheap Peugeot 405 1.8 TD
Auto  I had my AMG C36 and I
needed a cheap car to run over the
winter.  Bought it from on eBay for
£67 for a laugh and I ran it for a few
weeks and 4,000 miles. The 405
had a tendency to go into neutral
after a fast R/H bend.  Not bad for
the money, I sold it for the Volvo.  
2004 My lovely Mercedes AMG  C36 Auto.  I had
always wanted one, I bought this car with just over
50k on the clock.  The paint had been damaged so
it needed a complete respray
I ran the C36 for 5 years as my main car.  My AMG
had no traction control and an auto box so it was a
handful in the winter.  I had to take it off the road Nov
to March.  
A fabulous car to own and drive.  I had it de-badged
and it looked just like a lowered C200 until I put my
foot down.  I loved embarrassing M3's, M5's,
Scoobies and VR32's.  As the Americans say they is
no substitute for Cubes.
The C36 was the first engine to have variable Valve
timing and the first Merc restricted to 155mph.  The
build quality was superb
