Is that positano yellow...... or as i ussd to call it.... vommit yellow!...?

Whats great about these cars is that you can drive them flat out....
Far more enjoyment in driving a slow car fast.... than a fast car slow became roads or traffic won't allow it.... ( or laws!)

 

I could not agree more. :)

 

It's not positano yellow, it was resprayed and it's less vomity than that, I think it's a '70s Ferrari colour but don;t have much paperwork as the car was only imported from Rome last year.

Rubberduck says...."I am with you on this, although the thing that would put me off is the handbrake being on the wrong side."

 

Correct, it does seem set up for the LHD car market, but it does not affect me, as I am used to autos, so never use the handbrake even on a manual, as the MK4's are..

 

So when i start my MK4, I release the handbrake and that's it till end of journey, when I am parked, and I pull it back up again.

 

At junctions I hold with brake pedal so all brake lights on, for safety. And for hill starts, the MK4 comes with hill assist that holds the brakes for a second or two ,so you can transfer from brake pedal to accelerator pedal.

 

Sorted  :yes:

I'm in Leicestershire, if you're passing, drop me a DM or (better still as I'm rarely on here nowadays) contact me via the MotorPunk website. I'd be happy to take you for a spin. :)
