It's madness, but in m wifes new & old VW (Golf Gti & Touareg) they didnt have an ashtray!

AS daft as it sounds, a shop working (making sandwhiches all day) sued my father in law as she cut
herself & he hadn't told her the carving knife was sharp!!

Fortunately our Laguna has a ash tray, I mean where else would you put the

What the feckers in Brussels should ask themselves is after only five days
of ownership why I know this.
