    Never too Old.

    Hello,
    After many years of owning different makes of car I graduated to VW 3 years ago, with a Golf GT Edition 1.4, ACT, DSG. As a Lexus owning friend said to me, “Plenty to go wrong there “
    I’m pleased to say he was completely wrong, the Golf was faultless.
    Encouraged by this I’ve now moved to an ex demo Polo GTI+. Different experience to the Golf which I suppose is what you want with a vehicle change.
    Travelling in Eco mode, which amuses me knowing the car can do so much more but also be economical. Just completed a 500 mile round trip of motorways and A roads and managed to record 45mpg. Mind you, should have seen the queue of traffic behind me.
    Before I bore any readers further, I’ll stop here. Hopefully I may have a few more thoughts along the way that are suitable for these pages.
    Thank you.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.
