    Well after what can only be described as a week of sleepless nights, decisions decisions and decisions i have finally handed over a wedge of the spondoolies as a deposit on the new wheels.

    Nikki and I with the help from poor ear bitten mr and mrs @drago35uk have ended up joining my hero's @ShiftZZ and @old-mo and becoming those far better than Burstner owners and joining the elite band of Rapido owners..

    We have opted for a Rapido 999m on a 2009 3-0l Auto Merc.... A lovely if not very dirty bit of kit and can't wait to collect.

    So coming to a rallyfield near you soon------- Haggers and the Rapido with it's german routes carefully given the name of "rommel" or Panzer ...

    German? Crapidos are French young Haggers.

    Err guys, I'm not stupid :rolleyes:

    It's. A Mercedes, it's an iron horse, it's German........it's a Rapido the prime of French engineering powered by the prime of German engineering,,,,

    I think after 10 years of owning vans I can tell the difference, :rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Didn't want a Full German, that would be just wrong....(n)
