I'm down in Somerset at the moment. Journeyed down in the V6 in a most peasant manner...

Thwe V6 (and the Activa) really shows up a terrible shortcoming the C1 has....

It has a the most terrible heater.

It's OK when it gets going but it takes so long. Whereas the Activa and V6 are producing headt by the end of my road I'm almost at work by the time the C1 heater is getting going...

Ahh well, the price one has to pay of having a little and very effcicient engine I suppose...

It might be wonderful James but have you seen the size of C1 seats? One of those covers will do both seats :lol: I went on a diet specifically so that I could fit the C1 seat :roll:

If it helps, the dimensions are as follows;

480mm wide, 560mm high (upright bit), 450mm deep (seat bit).

Who am I? What is this place? What is this weird flat thing with lots of buttons on it with strange shapes printed on it?

There is a story I recall that, back in the 80s', IBM were seriously considering getting the PAUSE command changed, so that it would display the message "Press the Space Button to continue" (instead of "Press any key to continue"), due to the number of queries as to the location of the "ANY" key!
