    Default 4x4 program last night on ITV ...

    Anyone watch the program last night on 4x4`s, trying to get rid of them, had this dude on with a pimped out escalade and they were trying to convince him it was the wrong car for british roads. An instructor was giving him a few tasks to do one of which was reversing round a corner. Cocky kinda guy he was, anyhow on getting round the corner he managed to scrape his 22", £1500 a corner chrome alloy along the kerb. They didn`t pan back to him afterwards, reckon he mustv`e been crying I felt for him though !!

    Another test they lined 9 kids up behind a 4x4 and asked the driver to look in the mirrors and tell them what he saw "an empty playground" , when he saw the kids behind it after getting out he went a funny shade of white, it was an eye opener !!

    I missed it - wanted to watch it. I'll have to see if it's repeated.

    I am afraid I only saw about three minutes of it, but in that time realised it was typical Jon Sargent reporting, totally one sided.

    That was enough for me. Started a heated exchange in our house, along the lines of 'if I want to drive a 4x4 through choice then I will, Why should I be prejudiced and basically persecuted for it?'

    Load of old cobblers.

    Saw him scrape his alloy, had to laugh

    One of the future programmes will be about old people's bad driving. That should be scary to watch

    Was an interesting programme but didn't really tell me anything I didn't already know. The kids behind the Landcrusier was interesting, the rear visibility out the back of my Vec isn't brilliant either and I have been close to backing into low walls and ballards a few times.

    Default 4 wheels

    ...it annoyed me somewhat - why should I not drive the car I want to??.

    Someone at work had a pop at me when they raised the tax on 4 wheel drives last year - "Another 50 quid a year road tax...you will be getting rid of the car then?!?"

    Errr..no, £50 quid is half a tank of fuel - that aint gonna break the bank.
