Irony at its best

From my username there is a good chance you can work out one of the things I do for a living.

On Saturday I went and picked up my brand new Mercedes GLC. Well pleased with it, even it's like chalk and cheese compared to my BMW M140i.

I managed 150 miles before it needed to be picked up on a flatbed and returned to Mercedes.

Guess what broke....................yep, the starter motor. You couldn't write it could you.

I'm guessing you're the bloke with the gun at the start of an athletics race.

Funniest thing is they tried to tell me it's a Bosch unit. Bosch is no more. The Chinese bought them and now its SEG.

They have leant me a brand new GLE350. The thing is like driving a lorry

I thought this was going to be a thread about pintos.

I used to have an Alfa 156 V6. I loved it and apart from a few rattles it was never a problem. After a couple or three years I thought I was probably pushing my luck and bought a Toyota Avensis est. Most boring car I've ever had but it was a Toyota so should be bomb proof. Bloody gearbox went on it on my first long run
Fixed it, sold it to a taxi driver (slight profit) and went back to the Alfa which I hadn't found a buyer for.

Surely you should change it to NOTwinthelotteryman for it to be ironic?
