Likewise. I was resignied to having one odd tyre after a puncture a few weeks ago, but it was repairable.

I will arrange my first service in a few weeks time directly with Mercedes and get them to bill the lease company. There's no way I'm letting them book it into Kwik Fit.

Hi Frag, Skye's like a second home. Number plate W555 SKY. The West Coast has stunning roads. Hopscotch ferry to Tarbet then Campbelltown one of the best journeys. Thanks for the photos.

I'm lucky the lease company moved from Kwik Fit to National Tyres this year.

National were perfect.

Just over fives months on from ordering my 350e Saloon in Selenite Grey arrived this afternoon

I'll post up a few pics once I work out how to either shrink the things or find somewhere to host them.

I get my C350e in a few weeks from Lex. Has anyone persuaded Lex to enable the Mercedes Me on their car?

Not Lex, but I just walked into my local MB dealer with the VIN and my licence.

I've had my Lex 350 for a month and absolutely love it. I haven't contacted them about Mercedes Me but I have it working on 9/15 functions, I haven't looked at those that aren't functioning but the preclimate and charging notifications are useful and work fine.

I've been waiting over a week for my lease company to set me up! Grumble grumble.

What type of ownership do people have here? Lease or outright purchase (or other)

It seems that the generous discounts available to purchasers aren't reflected in the somewhat ambitious leasing prices. My current car (Skoda Superb SE Business) has close to the key 100:1 factor of discounted new price : effective monthly lease whereas the best deals I've seen on C350e have been nowhere close (80:1 at best). OK, so the 100:1 rates are pretty rare....

(effective monthly lease = total lease payments inc VAT/number of months)

I lease mine through the company. However the alternative allowance is so poor that the net cost to me (including BIK tax) is less than 500 even in the worst year.

I looked at alternatives but could not get anything like as good a car by other means.

Mine is a company car. The company I work for use only Lex.

I have owned Mercedes before, but until now the BIK was too high to justify having one as a company car.

I didn't know about the C350e until is used the Lex search tool to find a car the did 0-60 in under 6 seconds and used less than 50g/km. I was actually searching to see if I could order Tesla 3, but when the C350e appeared I realised I really like petrol.

Had the car a couple of days and so far it's been a blast.

One frustrating journey home tonight�� The satnav tells me stationary traffic, alternative route will save you 27minutes...... how do you change to the route it came up with a lovely little icon on the left of the screen but I couldn't find a way to reroute onto this. Half an hour longer to get home, a little sport plus eased the stress once it cleared��
