The sheep in the Highlands are proper nutters.

They like a line of sniff and are willing to attack.

Getting the children tooled up for action is a wise move.

You may drive the car of a failed Moscow dealer, but tacticly you are spot on.

Surprised you are not driving a murdered out G wagon.

The battery got hammered yesterday as the kids left the door open overnight. I charged it up but alas it wouldn’t restart when we were on our way to a remote distillery. We eventually saw another car and we jump started it with their help.

We’ve now detoured to Aberdeen Halfords to get a new battery sorted, not part of our holiday plans but all good fun!

I had similar problems with my kids leaving the interior light on in my OH’s Tucson, like yours it was one of the few cars that doesn’t seem to connect the interior light to a timer or the ignition. I just swapped the bulb for an led one, then even if they did leave it on it didn’t stop it starting the next day and as a bonus it was a lot brighter.

Epilogue-

We got back late last night, the ml55 making short work of the homeward leg. 
 

I believe in positive feedback as people love to moan and are much less likely to relay good experiences so I got my happy face keyboard warrior skills to use…..

Back home I also read up on the ml55 in the 350 or so back issues of car I managed to collect on our holiday. It turns out they thought it was shit, and one of  the worst new cars launched that year. I see their point but the very issues they had with it are what become character in an older car. Probably (?) Anyway it’s a stupid car but an enjoyable steer in a perverse way.

Bought some £5 headlamp paste gloop which worked ok. I’ve only done one, mind. Lazy! They are xenon lights which presumably when they go wrong will be another potentially costly bork.

I also need to get around to fitting the replacement rad but it only really leaks on a long run, of which a run to get a pizza is not one of them.

I like the rear 3/4 view on these. For a moment I thought the hydropneumatic suspension had collapsed at the back, but it’s just how it’s sitting on the kerb. 

That’s the life of a pound shop CL owner, on alert for impending implosions.

Tokyo chic vs Baltic chic. We took some Ukrainian refugees up onto Dartmoor in the elgrand and Krusty Coupe. The climb caused the leaky merc rad to do a wee. A chap in the saab next door asked if I needed some water. No thanks, but maybe a beer?

What was said in Ukrainian  about steam coming out from under the bonnet was beyond my translation skills.

Did you leave them there?
