    Default The Mrs & the Estate are just not Jelling ! May Be Sale Time !!

    The Mrs & our Vectra Cdti 150 Estate are just not getting along
    She gets intimidated by it's size ! She works herself up about parking & gets in a total panic .
    I have tried to console her but to no avail, It's not as though she is a bad driver, She drives really well, She now calls it Sherman Because it is the size of a Tank !!

    So, it would seem it may have to go, as we are a One car family

    I had so many further plans, (Lowering, Tinted rears, Colour Coding, Twin Exit exhausts) & have spent considerably on it already to improve the vehicle. (Modified Inlet manifold, Bushes & control arms, Steering Rack Etc)

    Hey Ho, It will make someone a cracking car ..

    Fit a reversing camera or sensors, cheaper than binning a car just because it's a bit on the large side!

    My mrs drives our `sherman` everyday for last 3 years and has never moaned,just got used to.(only 5`2 as well).It`s only a bit longer than hatch backs and saloons and signum.Still just as wide.
    As above get reversing sensors or alike fitted and benefit from the work you`ve done.

    Change the Mrs !! Now there's an Idea Quick calculation £22^6= **** Me, That will cost far too much !!


    Reverse sensors is a good idea, My Mrs is only Tiny Too, She looks lost in there & when i come round to drive it I always whack me Knee on the Dash as the seat is so Close !!
