Why or how do these people cope...

seen a driver drive at least 40kms with drivers wing mirror folded in upset to say it was female

People that want invitation when your letting them out

Another thing is people refusing to drop to second gear on roundabouts why lenny why!!!

For the last and doccumented time Victoria
Its a !Removed! Diesel engine,
The redline at 4500Rpm
Yes you can redline the roundabout in 2nd gear
Or
Sail around at 1500rpm in 3rd gear

And on some occasions you've gotta remind yourself you've got eibahs fitted with 7.5" wide tyres and take the roundabout in 3rd gear at 2600rpm :) show em who's boss
Obviously not with the kids in the back though.

Some people don't look intheir mirrors anyway even when not folded in.

 

If they need an invite they don't get out in my opinion.

 

Go girl give it some beans!

Agreed - the diesel will pull 3rd nicely (mine does) saves changing down on the way in, and up on the way out, so saves wear and tear on the gearbox/ clutch and flywheel (especially the syncromesh in 2nd gear, constantly downshifting into 2nd) and saves fuel as well, its also more "civilised"  

 

And if you can keep the momentum up you can "fly" round and "blast" out of the roundabout

 

As long as there is not a foreigner, old person or female going round in front of you at walking pace (just kidding :lol:) (cue uproar)

 

of course, In a petrol engined car or Cor.a you might have to drop it into 2nd
