Honestly, take it from someone who's owned and driven these for a living and give them a massive swerve. The only thing worse than a Fairway is a Metrocab.

Old FX4 taxi: Rather more than 300 sovs I'll wager.

That's an interesting question (the first one, not the second).

 

Delivery to Romania would be free of charge if you could find me a decent Dacia 1320 or 1325 to bring back...

It isn't looking good for them, they've already been booted from a few countries, and the UK is the next to tell em to FRO. Soon to be lots of cheap repo'd Piouses hitting the market, as drivers won't be able to keep up on the finance

Yes, but it can be over-done. Tried too much (i.e pretty much all veg) and it made mine bog down.

I suspect they're geared down for acceleration, because in a city environment (their home turf) not even a white Transit can keep up. ;)
