A Class Review

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

My Mom recently got herself a Mercedes Benz A Class from a family friend who had barley drove it, it is a nice white one so it is right up my street. She has added me to my insurance so I thought I would take it for a spin and maybe use this blog for an actual reason rather than just talking about pink cars ha. For me there are a few things that I judge a care by, first of how easy is it to park.

The second hand Mercedes A Class was a little bit bigger than anything I usually drive, however, it wasn’t too hard to park at all, especially with the parking assist technology that was super helpful. Therefore I cant fault the Mercedes A Class in this respect. Secondly I like my car to feel like an extension of my handbag, with plenty of nifty storage units for sunglasses, lippy, gloss, face wipes, eyeliner, blusher, hair brush, eye shadow and a good mirror so I can get myself looking pretty when I get stuck in traffic. I must admit it was great for that, it is an automatic so the elimination of a proper gear stick made for extra room for storage space. The sun visor mirrors also had lights on either side meaning I can use them at night, a luxury that I’m not used to, so again the Mercedes gets top marks.

Thirdly, boot space. I like to use the boot as an extension for my wardrobe. It should be able to store ample shoes, loads of PJs, for any spontaneous slumber parties, uggs, and basically, any left over clothes that were making my room look untidy. The Mercedes A Class boot was adequate enough, though after a weekend with the girls some stuff did start making its way onto the parcel shelf, so I give the boot space a 3 out of 5.

Finally, how does it look? The A-Class was actually a pleasant surprise. When my mom told me she was getting one I think I was picturing something closer to a second hand Mercedes Benz R Class for some reason.

 

OMG Citroen DS3… PINK!

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Fiat 500s are so last year!  their are certain cars that are just girly, the original for me was the Ford KA, then there was the Nissan Micra, and then there was the Fiat 500, which, despite my opening comment I still love.  Recently I have been totally falling in love with a another girly car, one of my girlfriends swears by her second hand Renault ZOE, and I agree to an extent, but this one is a bit more feisty, packing a bit more of a punch and aggression. The main thing that really makes me want this car is the incredibly lush colour options you have. one word…. PINK! That’s right ladies you can get the DS3 customized in pink paint! I know right!? OMG! There are two different styles, you can go pink and black or pink and white. The roof and the wing mirrors are the parts that get covered in pink.

Aren’t they just darling? What’s more, the pink DS3 looks absolutely stunning on the inside too! There a splashes of pink everywhere, the whole dashboard is pick and the gear stick is pink and proud! There is also a special edition version I have noticed where the interior is divine.

Just look at it! It’s like something from Grease, the pink ladies would feel completely at home in one of these babies. Notice the “hello Gorgeous” on the dash and the center makeup holder! God I would love to go on a road trip with my girlies in this car…. There is diamond mirror for crying out loud. To be honest this limited edition interior probably wouldn’t be great for me, I would constantly be distracted! Oh well, at least if I crashed I would look good ;P

For some terrible reason Citroen are no longer doing the pink edition there are a fair few pink second hand Citroen DS3 models online for around 10 grand, and that includes both the black and white variations. Unfortunately I am yet to find one for sale with the “hello gorgeous” interior.
