Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, Featured On Driveaholic.nl

I met up with Chris from Driveaholic.nl a little while ago, as he was interested in a review of the CLS55 AMG. I could not refuse and was happy to oblige, as Chris is a talented writer.

Very happy with the article (it’s in Dutch) and had a great afternoon during the test 🙂

Mercedes CLS55 AMG W219, First Dragy 100-200km/u Measurement, 9.72s!

Met up with Chris van Driveaholic.nl. Chris brought his Dragy with him so it’s rude not to put it to use. Very nice 100-200km/u run on the autobahn in Germany, with an excellent result; 9,72 seconds for a stock car!

Considering it was measured with 2 people in the car, around 75% fuel in the tank and EURO RON95 petrol (instead of RON98 or Aral RON102).

Safe to say that my CLS55 is quite healthy 😉 And very happy with this baseline. On to the next dragy runs!




VW Golf MK3 GTI Mesh Grille

Bought a new grille (without the VW logo), but I didn’t want the one with the double louvres, as that has been tried and tested. I noticed this one from JOM and ordered it. Got a message back from a Dutch webshop that they aren’t able to deliver anymore. Searched and found it on German Ebay, for less than price that the Dutch webshop advertised it for, so happy days 🙂
