That's better than a skelp on the bellend with a flipflop and no mistake!

Congrats GregRofl! Good work suppressing the smug grin...oh wait... ;)

I have been looking at new/ different cars since early last year but doesn’t seem any point just now when I literally haven’t been more than a mile or 2 from home so far this year and haven’t driven more than 3000 miles in the past year.

Not quite in the same league.....working from home has meant things have changed a bit. It's brilliant fun and pretty much free to run

Fiesta ST, Volvo and more pushbikes than strictly necessary.

X5 30d 48v mild hybrid, arrived early December. Loads of torque, engine stop/start seamless with the motor kicking in. Coasting or going downhill, engine shuts off completely, then you can definitely feel the weight, completely opposite to the Lotus.

Ideal for two dogs and all their stuff, nice big comfy machine with lots of tech, although the lane departure is now switched off!

LED sky lounge sunroof is cool, sporting a wee purple hue at the momentImage

I really like that, kind of tempted by one for the wife but perceived quality of the interior has always put me off.
In-laws had an 11plate focus and the interior looked like a JVC midi system I had in ‘94.

How do you find it?
