Another user in a different thread stated the following I thought was interesting:

"Mercs used to be great - well built and reliable. Now they have reduced the quality of build and the reliability. They are pimp mobiles for corporate wannabes - accountants, lawyers and bankers. A British gentleman drives a Bristol, a Morgan, TVR, Lotus, an old MGB (e.g. Tom Mahon) or even a pre-BMW Mini Cooper."

I have a black mercs and think is it pretty simple and nice. Not flashy and pimp. Not sure if I agree

true gentlemen don't always start threads trying to brag about their shit

A true gentleman leaves the driving to his chauffeur, so that he might engage in stimulating dialog with his traveling companion.

How about the true gentleman being himself a true gentleman and not having to have it represented through a shell with 4 wheels? Should make some sense

I am a true gentleman, I drive a 5 year old matrix - practical, paid for with cash, relativly easy on the enviroment, modest.

It might once have been said:

A true 'gentleman' might be so out of it on his 'drug of choice', he might not know what or whether he had been driving but he would know who could sort the consequences therof.

Odd question
