  1. If you want a SUV then newish at that budget it’s probably a Skoda Kodiaq just be wary the 2.0TDI 4wd manual 7 seater isn’t type approved fit towing
  2. There’s no government guidelines that refer to the end of June, it’s a decision made by CMC End of June could be realistic, but there may be limitations around the number of people on site
  3. Need to give a budget for people to have half a chance
  4. Agreed, I think it’s been a mantra for those who are lacking a grasp of how society actually needs to work.
  5. Nothing said about ‘badged’, but the shorthand abbreviation.
  6. Maybe to you, but of course the shorthand for a Rolls Royce is ‘Roller’; I’ve never ever seen them referred to as a ‘RR’ However, RR is often used as shorthand for Range Rover, just like LR is Land Rover.
  7. The RR was probably Euro 5, the DPF’s cycled much less than Euro 6 cars
  8. The Passat is getting used one day a week for my commute (65 miles), the A2 is currently doing the bulk of my commute and doesn’t have a DPF anyway (Euro 4) I’d imagine doing one short trip a week will make no difference to the DPF at all.
  9. The company went bust in October - that’s a tenuous link even for the DM
  10. Don’t disagree with the seriousness, but there’s nothing in the reporting that suggests this is COVID-isolation based, that’s simply click-bait for the Daily Mail (thank you to whoever edited my post from Daily Mail*, I’d hate to have got it wrong) *Its set up like that! I love it, of all the things to get upset about taking the mick out of the gutter-press purporting to be decent isn’t really one of them, especially as another thread has a mod being genuinely offensive to another user!
  11. My exercise is taken in the gym, so I am struggling at the moment - I’ve tried a few sessions in the conservatory but I like the cross trainer and decent weights rather than body resistance stuff
  12. What, the Daily Mail jumping to conclusions?
  13. For those not familiar with Maslow’s Hierarchy of Need, here is a link; https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/60/Maslow's_Hierarchy_of_Needs.svg I’m not as defeatist as many, although appreciate the concerns of those close to retirement with defined contributions rather than benefits. Looking at the Hierarchy, there has been too much of a focus on the upper elements of the triangle and a lack of recognition of the importance of the base - it is clear we are currently seeing that reset and I’d imagine that will continue. Undoubtably we will see increased taxes, both personal and corporate, so less of peoples take-home will be disposable on items towards the top of the triangle - austerity didn’t work, and it won’t work again especially as those least able (and responsible) for the financial crisis have already paid the price once. I’m also slightly concerned with the over-use of ‘key worker’ as I think it’s far wider than the obvious and it should be recognised there are lots of roles that are ‘key’; however I do note that so far hedge fund holders and investment bankers haven’t made anybody’s list. On the exciting side we’ve been doing some incredible stuff at work that people have been trying to deliver for years but have always been halted - the art of the possible is now encouraged and I hope many of the practices remain. People will return to old habits but I think much will be different and a lot of it for the better.
  14. This will give you an idea, the Kadjar and Qashqai are the same car and this one is the 1.5dCi; So long as the Qashqai can tow the weight legally I’m sure it will be fine if a little slow
