    Yes Ian, it will be big enough, it's a mondeo estate (for all those banding needs, lol) 2.0 TDCi. I thought it was metallic dark green, but it's actually dark blue :sup . Maybe I'm colour blind ;) .

    I never have time to get bored with my car. What with bits falling off it (brake shoes), bits getting stuck inside it (brake discs), bits of it not working (brake lights) and bits of it disappearing (wheel bearings), its a new adventure every time I get into it. Sometimes I get frightened just sitting in the driveway in it.
    And of course it's very distinctive, everyone knows it and people often wave cheerily as they pass me lying upside down in the hedge in it.

    And here was me thinking that all the dead badgers I pass on my daily commute had been hit by cars trying to cross the road. I had no idea that they had been driving them and had fallen out!

    Oddly enough I did once have a car of which the driver's door flew open at high speed (i.e. anything over 40mph) Seems to be the one thing this car doesn't do though.
    Although the habit of you humans of subsequently running over badgers who have inadvertently left their cars is morally reprehensible. :tongue:
