Pretty sure the German's have studied this. They found that the difference in survivability between 70 and 130+ was negligible.

What really matters is the "Golden Hour"

Besides, the 70 limit was originally intended as a temporary measure and was based on the top speed of the then fastest Police Car...Ford Anglia, if I remember rightly.
Nobody really paid much attention to it as most cars wouldn't hit 70 even if they'd been pushed off a cliff!!

#428418 Altenzo Tyre Help

I've had better results when getting my car tracked the "old fashioned way"

Those fandangled Hunter thingies just don't seem to be all that good. Ex-girlfriend had it done on her Fiesta and it was so badly done we took it to another garage. Didn't tell the bloke we'd just had it done - he looked at the front of the car and asked if we'd had it done recently on a Hawkeye Hunter (well, he named the garage).

Chap still wasn't 100% happy with it, so he didn't charge - despite the car feeling much better on the road. I believe she had some major work on the suspension earlier this year and had it tracked with the "old kit" again.


#428097 Spot The Poor Vauxhall!

Haha, I had to drive the astra and it was sickening at best. I don't think anything on the modern market matches the new mondeo (beyond of course the higher likes of jag and bigger more expensive motors) but as it stands mondeo is and will hopefully remain to be the best value family motor on its equivalent market. I could only think the nearest runner up would be the kia optima

Didn't that almost end in divorce after your Missus said she quite liked it?
