I always ask my customers if they have comments about getting their new car. Really, I am looking for criticisms (so I can improve my service). However, customers like Kathryn Sykes show that it is hard to generate real criticism. I can only improve if I know if anything is wrong. So, no thanks to Kathryn Sykes 🙂

Kathryn says…
carThank you Ling for the excellent service you provided. I don’t hesitate in recommending you to friends and family. I cannot find fault with the service you provided, it was in fact excellent. We look forward to arranging our next vehicle with you when our lease is up. Thanks for all your help. No problem with delivery, but driver said car mats would be sent to us, but they haven’t.

Ford FiestaEditor Note: Well, Kathryn, I will send you a set of Ling mats, then. Usually cars do not come with mats, but when they promise, they should deliver, eh? Another super Fiesta delivery. As you are a teacher, I am pleased to say your spelling was 10/10, hahaha! Don’t let the kids near the car. – Ling

My Mercedes A Class CO2 g/km levels

Green output is important to me, so I tell you the Mercedes A Class 1.5 A180d SE 8v (116bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1461cc Diesel Automatic (7 Speed) Diesel Automatic has changed, here are the new figures. I work hard to keep everything up to date.

Oh, I get very mad about this, but I cannot say this in my advertising or some big leasing companies complain to me that I slag them off… The industry standard for contract hire is a 1x rental-initial-payment or (more usually) a 3x rental-initial-payment. That’s it. If everyone advertised this, you could easily compare the rental figures as the football field we are playing on would be flat.

In 2008, I won the “BEST non-franchised ENVIRONMENTALIST” in the Automotive Management Awards, sponsored by the RAC. My website won “BEST non-franchised WEBSITE 2007” in the Automotive Management Awards. My website has been voted in the “TOP 100” in the world, by FHM magazine. I was voted “NORTH-EAST ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR 2006” in the One North East-sponsored WIN business awards. CAR Magazine listed me in their TOP 7 pick of UK car websites. I have around 50,000 unique visitors a month. I have well over 3000 happy, existing customers, and over 900 letters published on this website.

I am pleased to say that the CO2 for the Mercedes A Class Diesel Automatic is now 108g/km. If you chose a different trim level, the CO2 would change, but not by much.

My Mercedes A Class 1.5 A180d SE 8v (116bhp) Hatchback 5dr 1461cc Diesel Automatic (7 Speed) Diesel Automatic gearbox is only £274.44 inc VAT per month with 3 months initial payment, followed by 35 payments on direct debit. Business customers, make sure you deduct the VAT, when making decisions. As I can’t tell what type of customer you are (business or private), I can’t display the price any other way but to show VAT seperately (sorry!).

MercedesThis price on my Mercedes A Class includes full road tax for the length of the contract, on all of my cars and vans! Free delivery to your home or work and free collection from you at the end! £274.44 inc VAT per month is based on you driving 10,000 miles per annum, but higher mileages are usually available at a small extra cost. If you go over the allocated miles, you can pay a small excess mileage charge, usually between 3p and 15p per mile.


Remember I won the best non-franchise environmentalist 2008 in the Automotive Industry Awards. Don’t let these manufacturers fool you; is the ONLY new car supplier to display and promote environmental info for ALL new cars, on the web! I have a Master’s Degree in Environmental Quality from Bournemouth Univeristy in 2000, plus a BSc in Applied Chemistry from Jinan University, Guanzhou in 1997.

Slow down – driving at high speeds significantly increases fuel consumption.

Looking at my pile of website remarks, I just found this one:

I think that this is a great site. You got some cool crazy humour and jokes which had me rolling on the floor with laughter.

Biofuels also offer a way to reduce vehicles’ impacts on climate change. The fuels are not entirely CO2 neutral because of the energy used to grow and process crops, but they can offer substantial CO2 savings over fossil petrol and diesel. Today most biofuels are sold in a blends of up to 5% with fossil petrol and diesel . These are suitable for use in all vehicles. Fuel standards may be extended in the future to allow more than 5% if it is concluded that this is compatible with existing vehicles. Some manufacturers offer ‘flexi-fuel’ vehicles that can run on bioethanol blends up to E85 – a blend of 85% bioethanol and 15% petrol, as well as fossil petrol.
