Re: Driving to Scotland - Any Tips?

Er, sorry, but now I'm a little confused (Mrs MM would regard that as progress as she generally regards me as being hopelessly confused :roll: ); surely heeling-and-toeing is a technique used for changing down whilst braking isn't it?

Re: Driving to Scotland - Any Tips?

'I was planning on just taking the motorways (M25 -> M40 -> M6) up to Seascale...' Make sure you leave plenty of room between you and the vehicle in front - their brakes are a squillion times better than yours and too many drivers deal with changing/adverse situations ahead of them by slamming their...

Re: Seat to steering wheel dimension

Coincidentally, when I bought my car, I asked the vendor (who had owned the car for six years) how to adjust the driver's seat and he told me that it wasn't adjustable. On arriving home (after a less than comfortable drive) my wife asked me the same question and received the same answer. 'Why has it...
