New car
#1
Ive not been on here for a while because ive just done 27 night shifts.

Next Tuesday or Wednesday im getting a 08 plate Volvo V70 D5 auto SE LUX, im still keeping the Berlingo and using it as a taxi.
To accommodate the Volvo ive had to extend my drive way and take down a Confiner thats approx 30-40ft. I need to order around 1ton of red chips.
When ive got the car ill upload some pics! Big Grin

When I was researching insurance groups to determine which first car my lad (I) could afford, I was amazed that big volvos appeared in almost every slot from Group 1 upwards.

Like most motorcyclists of a certain age, I have an alternative view of volvo drivers,but well done anyway!

I too used to think that people that drove certain cars were certain kind of drivers but it doesn't matter what people drive, you got good and bad drivers in all kinda cars.

I am shocked that no-one has mentioned that the most careful, considerate drivers are taxi / private hire drivers.
