I actually find that small French car seats, whilst superficially comfortable, don't tend to be particularly great for dodgy backs.

 

What happened to the AS bike Colt?  That was auto wasn't it?

It's dead/dying according to a recent post by castros_bro :(

 

I'd love to buy it back and sort it out though

Thanks for the advice chaps, the R8 Rover is tempting, but I've been stung with a nasty MG/Rover ZS diesel that use to dismantle itself on every journey. Had a couple of Renault 19s in the past but never tried an auto, they seem to be just about extinct now.

 

I did wonder about a Toyota Starlet.

You could spend the change on some GTi and turbo badges from Halfrauds.

Come on. This is Autoshite. By now, you should have bought a Series II Land Rover. With a V8 in it.

+1 for the Laguna 2. However the only one really worth it is the V6 which is hard to find and not exactly economical...
