That fucking XJS wan't a fucking XJS, twas a fucking 6 litre XJ12.
Six litres belong in the cylinders, not in the fucking sump of a fucking fourbanger.


You’re so cute when you’re angry.


Twice as much oil in the sump of a Jag V12, you know. Mind you, three times as many cylinders. [/StokingTheFlames]

It does seem an unnecessarily large amount. The 4 cylinder 3sfe in my Toyota takes 3.9 which is lovely; 2x 2 litre Castrol which are often £6 at Tesco and you’ve still got a splash left for top up.
 

 

This amuses me as my bike takes four and half fucking litres, in a fucking bike!

The Pooshow is more agile, more comfy and quieter inside.

Consequently you just disembark it less worn out after a hard days work and drive.

From my point of view, that's better.

I sort of understand the JM.  

 

My Mercedes 190 is beautiful.  It's in 99% health and EVERYTHING works.

My Toyota Avensis is knackared.  It's probably on 50% health and lots doesn't work.

 

But it is a much better tool for getting somewhere purposefully.  It's brisker, it's comfier and and if I'm travelling for anything other than fun - it's the Toyota key I reach for.

So you did have more comfortable cars. Me too. Many. And one of them is the Peugeot.
 
The ride of the Benz is remarkably unrefined and the seats are too hard.
It requires very precise inputs, it's relatively torpid and there is the road noise level.
All this adds to your weariness the longer your journey is.
The Peugeot is better in all these aspects and that's what counts for me.
Journey for journey, I exit the Peugeot less worn out.
 
And the Peugeot is not the most comfy car I ever had. Not by a long reach.

Oddly, the WBOD I bought from AMC Rebel (a Peugeot 307 HDI grenade engine) is one of the most comfortable cars I've ever had the pleasure of driving too.

 

So much so I'm re-MOTing it next week.

 

The French do very comfortable cars very well, and always have managed to do that better than anyone else.

Only slightly more comfy, the only real drawback it had was the 4-speed auto made it busy on motorways.

I've never been a fan of french seats, too soft with no support where I need it. But then I've not tried a pug so maybe they are better.

I am a big fan of the 230. However I will concede that the Peugeot has comfier seats, is quicker and more agile. 

 

Neither have a good sound system, which I would consider vital for a 180 mile commute.

I'm not a fan of the sound system in my Peugeot, that's about all I'd change though as a daily smoker.

 

To be honest it needs speakers changing is all.

In face of this overwhelmingly redundant signage, unclear and inconsistent road markings, terminally shit signposting, all sorts of obstacles thrown into one's path, most road users being too dull to know what they are doing so I have to do their thinking on behalf of them, the last thing I need in a car is a loudspeaker emitting some stupid shit in addition to this default information and noise overload.

Spoken like Issigonis there. Radios are a distraction, you'd best fit more uncomfy seats to keep you alert too.

I won't fit the Mercedes seats into the Peugeot, no.

And I'll keep the radio off, since I do not wish a loudspeaker add unnecessary and easily avoidable noise pollution to my immediate surroundings.

 

It's all about how I disembark from my car after my day's work and commute. And for that, the Peugeot is better than the Mercedes.

 

End of.
