Re: Two out of three ain't bad

Sounds like a great choice. That colour works very well on them, too.

Re: Two out of three ain't bad

Congrats on the order. I hope you enjoy the new car. Suzuki remind me of the sort of Fiat of Asia. Quirky, original, doesn't cost a fortune to run but has character in a Japanese retro sort of way (most models!)

Re: Two out of three ain't bad

Well the Vitara finally arrived and it's really quite a good car, I can sense there might be another one to follow sooner rather than later.

I'm now considering either another SZ5, this time with Allgrip or a Vitara S with the 1.4 turbo which has Allgrip as standard for myself, though the NA 1.6 is more than enough really.

The radar cruise control and brake support is my favourite toy, it works really well.
I thought it might struggle and pick up slower moving cars being passed in the near side lane, but it works a treat without issue.

It has three setting, far, middle and up the arse of the driver in front.
Some knobhead managed to pull out on me and squeeze in the gap when I was testing "up the arse" setting and it jammed the brakes on before I could even think about it.

Re: Two out of three ain't bad

Don't like the sound of the 'up the arse' setting. I'd be sticking some tape over that!

Could be quite painful when you come to remove the tape, though.
