My thoughts on all things motoring, press releases, reviews & techie stuff, from around the world.
Please note that the pictures of vehicles within this blog are used as examples of the specific press releases, on occasions, due to the lack of available official pictures, examples are re-produced.
ANY AND ALL PROFANITIES WILL BE REMOVED AND THE PERSON/S RESPONSIBLE WILL BE BANNED, NO EXCEPTIONS.
I will try my best to provide detailed info on various cars and what is like to live with them, I have already produced a few for Jaguar-car-forums, I will do my best to be unbiased, but it will be hard for some cars. I will re-produce press releases and copy from other motoring news.

Mercedes-Benz shows Growth on the month with additional increases in finance and service plans also shows growth.
Mercedes-Benz Vans is celebrating yet another record-breaking year so far, with 26,267 vans registered by the end of September – an increase of 1.6% on the same period last year.
September has been the second best ever month for Mercedes-Benz Vans in the UK, second only to September 2015, which is a fantastic result for the brand. Last month was also the highest ever Citan sales month in the UK.
Mercedes-Benz parts sales revenue has also increased year-on-year by 2.1%, driven by increased workshop sales. Service Plan sales also are up 31% overall, compared with the same period in 2015.
In addition to this, Mercedes-Benz Financial Services has paid out a total of £214m finance volume so far this year, which is a 5.6% increase on 2015.
Steve Bridge, Managing Director, Mercedes-Benz Vans, said: “I absolutely believe that we have the right products, people and processes to keep our customers’ businesses moving, and our year-to-date results for 2016 prove that.
“We have also won several high-profile awards again this year, including Fleet Van of the Year at the prestigious Motor Transport Awards, so the industry clearly agrees that Mercedes-Benz Vans is the brand to be with!
“I look forward to sharing our end of year results, which are set to be our best ever.”
