It's OK, I was only winding you all up... Puke is an excellent moniker for it...

If I really had to run a modern it would be a C4.
Yes, factory is only a couple of miles from me and the damned things are everywhere.

Good effort but it has soul in it's crapness. you need somethign that has no soul, is just a tool and shows no flair in its design. Try Hyundai

Jeeze really, someone exchanged a prelude for a Rover 800, what a nutter.

Not at all Dean, the more of those sort of cars Luke has, the better. When he finally sees the light in the shape of an XM or Activa he'll then really know he's found gold and truly appreciate it for what it is.

It is only a matter of time now... The penny will soon drop...

I thought the day would never come Mark.

Absolutely Jim, to be honest I really can't wait to own a Xantia V6. I have fond memories of my grandmother's 1.8 LX as I was growing up. Having to input the immobiliser code and then waiting for it to rise before driving off, what a car! It was noticeably more clever and better equipped than her husband's Laguna RN that it shared the driveway with

With the S2 you get the joy of the 4HP20 'box...
