Not that I’ve seen it yet. The Sage and Mike went to Norwich today to look at it, have approved and bought it and Mike has taken it back to his workshop as the electric windows need some attention.
I asked about it – it’s a Mercedes, a very dark blue, started the Sage, and went on to describe more fully the colour. I explained that I don’t really care about colour. Nor make. Actually, that it works goes a long way for me.
So, it’s 11 years old (age is not a factor either), an estate (which I wanted) and 2000 cc (1600-2500 was my generous range, with a preference for the lower to middle end). I didn’t care whether petrol or diesel and had a slight preference for manual over automatic. I need enough leg room in the back for friends who aren’t that flexible. I want air con (this is a factor in older cars) and power steering (ditto), which Mike took some convincing of.
So, I probably won’t have it for Tuesday, but may get a lift with Ro and have breakfast in Norwich or may take the bus.
For those interested, I didn’t note the full details, but it’s something like C200*insert letter or two* Elegance. Not a word that has ever described me, but a woman can aspire. Looking it up on this website, I said to the Sage “does it have leather seats?” He said it does. I wonder if that means it will smell like a Morris Minor? A point in its favour if so.
Oh, I should add that I gave full decision-making powers to the Sage. I suggested that I only needed to look at it if he was not quite sure, otherwise I’d be happy to entrust him and Mike with the decision. I can delegate, you see.
