    Default warning to auto owners

    Now have you had one of those nights??

    It's late, dark, the mrs want's to go in, but when you pull up in the car and select park it won't engage..

    I mean, the lever will not move forward of 'R'.. so no park and no taking the key out either.. What do you do??

    I resorted to colourful language and brute force, Telling mrs Gsi exactly where i would shove this car when at the dealers in the morning.. Lever moves and he goes to bed..

    This morning, engage drive and go to work.. thinks ' before phoning the dealer i'll just have a look' and removes the selector surround.. straight away spot the 2x £1 and 50p coins jamming up the gear shift.. DOH!!!

    So the moral is.. If you keep cash in your ashtray, don't keep too much or it'll spill back and down the carefully engineered hole that vx left leading to the gearshift..

    Mrs GSi's response... Unrepeatable..

    Coins in the ashtray?.....Ashtray?.....
    Oh…..is that what the lidded, illuminated box is for in front of the gearlever.
    And there was me thinking it was a special receptacle for the diesel owner's ear plugs!
    Did I really say that?

    Living dangerously!!!

    I suppose it builds up the muscles in the left arm (and keeps Mr Clutch in business).
    Many manual owners have strange misplaced feelings of superiority - thinking that us auto owners do so 'cos we're so feeble minded, we lack the basic co-ordination necessary to move one foot and one hand at the same time.
    The truth is, of course, that the manual gear changing belongs in the dark ages, along with the starting handle and the manual choke, and we're all far to busy and far too intelligent to be bothered with the tedious task of stiring a box of cogs around.
    I wonder if they're still using "twin tub" washers in their kitchens!!!
