    Ditto.

    I often considered removing the foot dip switch on mine. I think they are terrible to operate-not that I have or ever intend to drive the TD in the dark anyway! I avoid even driving a modern car in the dark and certainly not if it is raining.

    I think that a lot of these smaller cars that achieve 50mpg or so have, after 10 or 12 years largely paid off their environmental impact from initial manufacture. The alternative of a new small car hybrid with all their clever electronics and dual engines may be less polluting when driven, but will have a huge environmental deficit yet to spread over their lifetime.

    There's a lot to be sai...

    Pierre,
    no. :)

    Yep the C1 et al is a good option. Student son bought a 2007 model (60k miles) 5 years ago for 1100 although its had a clutch and an exhaust. still does 50plus MPG and a doddle to service

    Fiat Panda.

    Depending on budget, 100hp version is a laugh! :-)

    Good luck tomorrow Stephen, fingers crossed for you

    Guy, I have a similar Punto with similar mileage. The only downside I find with them is the huge blind spots notably the front and door pillars, not helped by the drivers door mirror not adjustable far enough out to see what's coming when joining a dual carriageway. Admittedly I do have the seat well back with quite a rake on it.

    Scott,
    don't really know yet, too soon, but it's the clearest it's been since a couple of months after the (last) new clutch and slave cylinder. More importantly the brake fluid has been changed and again clearest it's been for a good while.

    More road tests required as the NEC is coming up and the last few years this has been a jinx for faults on the the car, or me, or both.
