- The car had all the toys. I mean ALL the toys - the steering wheel had more buttons than Jensons. The radio was more complicated than my hifi. Headlights started to work automatically, good news when you have forgotten to work out to to switch them on. There was cruise control too but I couldn't work out how to operate it.
- The seats were comfortable.
- 6 gears - yes 6. Why ? Old cars managed with 3, here I get twice that, or more if you count reverse. They had even put the gear stick in a proper place.
- The handbrake is in the wrong place and can only be operated by a contortionist.
- There is a box behind the handbrake which now has a dent the shape of my elbow.
- It's silver. The colour people choose when they can't be bothered to choose or have no imagination.
- I think there is a hole in the petrol tank, or it drinks fuel like I drink tea.
- There is no space in the back. I mean look, Hellingly Hospital is a tiny layout no longer than 6 feet long and yet it still struggles to fit in the back. This is no tiddly shopping car either, it's a proper repmobile which will in theory hold 4 people. When will car manufacturers think about the railway modeller market ? I mean we need space to move train sets and that is what matters, not rubbish like ride quality or lights or performance. I want a box that moves stuff. A bit like my campervan but suitable for the M25.
Can I have a job on the telly now ?
