Re: Shit happens
I do have the luxury of a high back seat courtesy of exmoor trim, I have to
confess, but I have been driving with a vertical back for some time, as my
limo had vertical seat backs because of the division.
I used to think things like electric windows were cool, but now it seems
there is nothing more practical than just being able to flick the window
open and stick your elbow out.
It is nearly 3 years since I have driven anything up to date and in those
three years I can't say they have got any better.
Power steering is fine but if it is so sensitive that you dare not even
sneeze thats not good, turn it too far an you will be all over the place.
I don't know what Rangies, Freelanders and discos are like to drive, I would
hope nothing like what has happened to Ford.
I used to drive escorts, sierras, granadas it was an effortless move from
one to the other as the controls were all the same, but today ???
I think that the standard of driving has probably declined for no other
reason than that the cars most people are lerning on today offer no
Series 3 rust and holes
