If you had to do it again, what would you choose?

I'd most likely keep my Red 3L V6 Diesel 2016. Current car is ok I suppose if I hadn't owned better. But to go to a 4cyl 2L petrol - in spite of what they say it is a big No for me.
The control centre is a sort of iPad in the centre consul that displays all sorts of info you just don't need - like your driving style, the radio never seems to return to its original state and so on.
The auto start is too slow. I do, however, like the normal display in front of the steering wheel because its bright, although the other info like auto speed limiter etc: is too crowded on the screen.
I have turned off the lane divergence thingy because it tries to correct when not necessary. To many gizmos to distract when driving. Also I definitely do not need a top speed of 155mph.:-)
Most normal vehicles seem to be going this way, though.
I am thinking of doing it again. To avoid the fully gizmo'd automation I would have to go back 2 years and get an used XF with low mileage and head-up display, or a similar Range Rover.

How come you got rid of the 2016?

A 2L in that thing?!? That's appalling. I would bet that car only comes with a V8 here - at least I'd hope so!

I'm with you though, all this new tech in cars is horrible. The added fuel economy is the only upside if you ask me.
I was thinking about what 2nd car I'd pick up if I was able to - R129 Mercedes (SL500) because I think they were still quality vehicles, and I love the way they look. I think it may be one of those vehicles that eventually jumps in value. Unless I could find an E46 M3 with 3 pedals, of course.

Then again I keep having dreams of swapping a Cummins 4BT into my FJ Cruiser. That could be really interesting. I'll have to see if that's been done before. :-D

Mclaren motor parked on Malmesbury High Street this morning. Reminds me a bit of our 2CV, but that was red and white :rolleyes:

My ambition for a good while is to grow old disgracefully. So far my wife tells me that I am doing really well!

That looks a bit like the larger version of the R4 Hetier. A bit like the difference between the 2CV and the Diane ;-)a

Do you still have it?

I was briefly following an old 2CV only last night. Had a sign in the back, 425?cc and 12 bhp! It was on what looked like an old pre 63 number plate but it was left hand drive.
