Never seen an ultima,but a 993 turbo driven by a very middle aged woman pulled up alongside me today,I thought that was rather cool.


Very middle aged? does that mean it was exactly half way thorugh her life? how do you know?  

edit: just asked someone in my office what they think 'middle-aged' is and they said "old" - I take it back!


when i was 20 middle aged was 40,now im 40 middle aged is 60,and im sure when im 60 ..80 will be middle aged.


When does middle-aged spread start? Sure it was about 30 for me.

Saw not 1 but 2 Merc SLS's in Mayfair yesterday. Parked next to a cream coloured 599 GTB and a couple of Rolls Ghosts. All with Arabian registration plates of course.

Parked next to a mid-blue Rolls Phantom Drophead yesterday.

It's huge - it dwarfed the Stilo.

Also proof (to me) that £315,000 doesn't buy you any taste.

They are very low and very wide and stunning in the flesh, I've seen four on the road.

Nothing as exotic as SLS's, but two smart roadsters yesterday - one all black, the other Bond Bug orange/black.

I actually quite liked the orange one......

If you mean the Rolls, they're about the same as a 7, A8 or S class LWB, though considerably chunkier, but certainly well proportioned. More so than the Phantom. If you mean the SLS it seemed about the same as an SL, though that's not especially surprising. They certainly look better than in magazines.

yeah, not very clear was I. Meant SLS as not seen one yet. I've been a fan since day one, but the pics make them look massive, ie too big for our roads. Ghosts do look tidy -  if you want an oversized Rolls get a Phanthom drophead, never seen anything quite like it!

I saw a MINI today but it wasn't a normal one or the Countryman or Clubman, it looked alot like the 4x4 that seems to be doing the rounds in the press, it was matt black.

After I saw it on the A3 I saw a load of other MINI's so I wonder if it was at an event locally.

Watched some folks unpacking a fully loaded Audi Q7 today (most likely students moving in for the new term). I reckon I could get more in the Punto... leaving aside the 'avoiding the accident in the first place' argument, the Q7 has got to be one of the safest cars on sale in which to place loved ones - there's about 5ft of car tween you and the outside world in every direction!

Also saw my 'realistic' dream car again today, dark blue 911 (996) Carrera 4S. I have to pretend I haven't seen it in case I ring up someone and buy one while looking at it.

Sold a Scenic II to a family, it was for the nanny, their main car was a Q7 and the Scenic was bigger in the passenger compartment and also had a larger boot, I was amazed at how small the boot was in the Q7.

The last time I was in a Q7, I was amazed how poorly built it seemed.  The guy had only had it a day and it was squeaking and rattling all over the place.

Only got 4 stars in Euro NCAP - much to Audi's embarassment.

Front impact
Poor welding resulted in rupture of the footwell area. There was separation of the seam connecting the firewall to the footwell and failure of spot-welds in the footwell and its connection to the A-pillar. Audi have informed us that they have now improved control over this part of production but the car lost points for its performance in this area. Structures in the dashboard presented a potential risk to the knees and femurs of the driver.

A few beauties today.

A black DB9, too much drooling over the macho DBS and I'd forgotten what a classic beauty the vanilla version is.

Then a F355 and a Lotus, which I'm hoping someone will identify...when I can work out how to post a pic!

I forgot, last week I saw a Renault BeBop, a French registered one.

They aren't coming over here and have been a mahoosive flop in Europe, along with the Peugeot/Citroen equivalent.

It may well be aimed at them, but ends up being bought by the elderly, who value the higher driving position and ease of access.

I think I saw a Guilietta (sp?) today.... not sure, as it was tear-arsing along in the opposite direction on the M80, in the pissing rain!

And it was black.

Didn't like it, really, though I loved the one I specced on the Alfa configurator............

They've had demo cars for a few weeks now.

I saw a shiny Sierra XR4x4 recently but I can't remember where.

Talking of the Modus, since the facelift, I've on seen the Grande. Has the original size been dropped by Renault UK or is the Grande just much better value?

There is no point buying the normal one as it's only about £600 less than the Grand and the larger one is much more practical and the higher residuals almost cancel out the higher price.

Many existing Modus customers upgrade to the Grand.

Having said all that my colleague has a "normal" one ready to be delivered.

2 beauties on th A14 coming home from Ipswich on Thursday, both going eastbound as I was going west.

a silver McMerc SLR, quick glance and i think it had the registration F1 (something), it was stuck behind a slow moving Renault Megane

and then, a brilliant white Ferrari 458 Italia

both made my 135 drive back in a Zafira CDTi Auto a bit more pleasureable

I saw a metallic brown Nissan Juke the other day, it looked good, really distinctive too.

Not actually on the road but Mercedes Benz of Glasgow have a black SLS in the window. It might be the colour but it looks kind of boring actually!

There was plenty at the race, but I didn't bring a proper camera and frankly I couldn't give a toss anyway.
