Funnily enough I was looking for a yellow lupo (Partly inspired by @bunglebus) but the one I found was a good price but was quite far away and had “worn drivers door hinges” which put me off but I later read that is a thing on those.
Anyway rather predictably boredom set in . It worked for a start. Plus I was looking at it being my only car until some business arrangements come to fruition. I’m eyeing up a bit more of a substantial classic purchase autumn time. Maybe a p4 rover. So man logic determined I needed a bigger car, as it was my only car (Perhaps like the e class merc I had recently sold ....)
Anyway continuing the odd number of cylinders themeI’ve moved from three to five. It sounds a lot better (not hard) ; it’s a lot smoother (not hard) and also uses more fuel (also not hard) It also has exterior design by a man from Northumberland, even though it draws heavily from the Company’s very heavily Swedish corporate identity.....
2.5 5cyl 20v manual. It’s not a quick as it sounds, but it sounds amazing. So I will forgive it that.
This is the first 5cyl estate since my w123 300d. This is faster, less rusty, but equally in its own way a product of a distinct and individual design and engineering practice. But never mind that, it just sounds great!
