    Are you getting strange looks from other passengers?

    Well, I loved my X358 and I love my X351.
    I have had a fair few cars since I passed my driving test almost 54 years ago; some were A to B cars and others I was rather more fond of.......MGC Roadster with triple SU conversion, Daimler V8 250, Split Screen VWCampervan, Rover 110.
    Nothing wrong with reliable A to B cars and after suffering with a 'troublesome' car in the past, it was rather satisfying to get a boring motor that you knew would start in the morning!
    Each to their own, and with my mileage having shrunk rather, I do admit to harbouring dreams of a used Bentley Arnage or Continental one day..............maybe!
    P.S.We can always use my wife's Nissan Micra Techna( excellent little car) as our A to B jobby!
