Indeed, have tried myself and not the easiest. You'll see a lighter version of me in a couple of weeks, I reckon I could manage it now The swing of the doors is more an issue in tight spaces

Might revisit the Fisker with the massive discounts on stock, just depends if the latest software updates fix their issues, waiting to see

The road tax prices are just too stupid.

Take this D4 S8

https://www.autotrader.co.uk/car-det...02311103842246

415 per year to tax as it was registered 17th March 2017

Had it been registered two weeks later on or after 1st April 2017 (and it's not April fool's joke), it would now be 190 per year to tax

And another one, registered 31/03/2027, so one day too early, meaning it's 415 per year instead of 190 (its says 715 RFL on the ad but I think that's wrong)

its correct the S8 Plus is higher than the normal S8
if you can find one registered after April 1st its 190
the joke is this 190 charge could be from a 1.2 corsa to a 5.0 mustang
absoloute madness
i did predict a while back these type of cars would be a Grand one day back when they were only 400

Congratulations on the sale, Brian. Fingers crossed for the other two, although I’m surprised that the S8 hasn’t been snapped up - there are fewer and fewer good ones left.
