She said, “It was a lovely surprise to pick up my new car and be told I was the company’s 100,000th customer! I liked the look of the A-Class so I test drove one. It was a fantastic and smooth drive and looked great, so I opted for one as my own company car. The Sales Executive at Mercedes-Benz of Bristol, John James, was excellent and put me at ease. I have been very happy with everything and can’t wait to drive my new car!”
