This is how it should be. I bought the car new from a main dealership that was poor from the off. Rightly, it no longer exists.

It makes sense: it’s the ideal form of transport, someone else does the driving and I can have a snooze and arrive refreshed at my destination ready for action. I also would not have to drive many, many miles on Britain’s rotten roads, senses alert for the next hair-raising close call from the next idiot driver. I could do this: Continue reading
