69.99 with free P+P from Maplins online.
Arrived in less than 24 hours so yesterday was its first outing.
I live in West Yorkshire and was going to a farm shop so the bit in Preferences about unmade roads just flew over my head.
It virtually took me through peoples dining rooms.
Bit of a farm track I thought..................That was the good bit.
The tractor wheels had left the ridge in the centre of the..........er........road rather a tad pronounced..........hey ho.
"Turn sharp right" the bitch in the box commanded, me, a married man, tried to obey.
At one stage my front bumper rested against the stone wall in front whilst my back door rested against one of the stone gate-posts on the other side of the car.
My wife chipped in "I don't like this"......................she'll get hers.
Luckily, whilst trying to reverse, the car started turning on its axis and I snuck through. Stig eat your heart out.
This less well maintained track I was now on sloped down alarmingly and had obviously never seen ANY traffic that didn't run on red derv or oats.
The car started to slide in the mud, it was only the humungous ruts that kept me from wiping both sides off the car off on the rough stone walls inches from me mirrors.
The Cresta Run? piece of Censored.
34 miles and hour and the cars driver was totaly redundant.
400yds In front of me, directly across my path, was a busy main road.
I had my foot pressed hard on the brakes, played with the handbrake for fun, I've got my current wife, she who'll get hers, shrieking down me ears, I couldn't even do a Daniel Craig and roll out of the car door cos the Censored Yorkshire Granite was too close.
Luckily there was a small area of cobbles tween the end of this death-slide and the main road.
The old bloke who watched me skid to a halt with the nose of the car hanging off the kerb will be sponging his trousers almost as long as I will.
Cracking bit-O-kit though.
