Ah, real wood from fake plastic trees are always a plus in or on any car! :thumbsup:

...which might have contributed to the decision to go to Jaguar, who actually at least had a separate wood work factory supplying relevant interior parts.  ;)

There are just as many onanists driving cheap cars as expensive ones.

- Can't be bothered to do the proper research and get it right.

Another ill conceived, lazily thought out, crudely executed and badly painted piece of half arsed what-if modelling muppetry from zenrat industries.

In my defence, I owned a Ford Mondeo Mk 3 for a few months before trading it for a Jaguar. On the upside, it had the V6 engine as well as some wood inside, even in the steering wheel.


I ran one of those, a V6 Estate, as a company car for 2.5 yrs. A cracking engine.  :thumbsup:

It was pretty good, but HOPELESS in the snow, no traction at all. Its gear lever also fell off once, just as I was accelerating away from the Severn Bridge Tolls. MOST embarrassing!  :-\
Any aircraft can be improved by fitting longer wings, and/or a longer fuselage
