The puddle lights on the Jaguar EPace

Probably just the wrong side of the twee/fun divide, but made me smile anyway.

Nah, it's on the right side of that divide I reckon. Got a smile out of me too.

We’ve been seeing that for a while now but hadn’t realised the drop was so severe. The vast majority of what we make here is exported and that’s going well but such a hefty drop here wasn’t forecasted. Yikes

Tempting to toddle over to PH and blame this on Brexit. Retire to a safe distance, then watch the gammons turn a brighter shade of puce, etc...

VW down 55%
Audi down 53%

Presumably the result of dieselgate - I wonder how they're US figures are looking?

From personal experience VW can't supply the cars due to the emission things.

I've just had to go on-line to get a year's vehicle tax for the Smart. I know I have to do this because I got a go on the naughty step letter last year. My crime being that I thought a demand to pay £0 NIL could safely be ignored.

So, every year now, they send by post a demand for me to send them nothing. Is it just me thinking there might be a better way for them to demand their nothing?

Went for a run in my mates Hellcat his evening. Jesus wept. Went through the clyde tunnel and just about shattered my ear drums. Brilliant! 700 odd bhp and a torque curve that's basically a flat line of madness right through the rev range. It's also humungous and made a bmw x6 look kinda dinky.
