In Topic: Who Does The Least Driving Per Year?

I think I'll do about 12000 miles in the first year of having my ST, and a lot of that is because I keep finding excuses to go for a drive :)

Interesting thought on this... At Christmas we're looking to rent a camper... When I get bladdered, stumble back to it keys in hand then am I about to break the law? Technically speaking?.


That's a good question, if that is still classed as drunk in charge then what about people who are on holiday in a camper, or even living in one permanently? Are they not allowed to drink?

I earn a average wage and yet 1/10th of my salary goes towards fuel, and I drive below the average person per year, just to give you guys some perspective


Yeah that's a lot to spend on fuel. My salary is a bit less than average in the UK but if I drive 10,000 miles in a year, fuel would only take up about 5-6% of my salary. Probably less than that if the fuel prices stay as low as they are now.

Looks good, I like how the tinted lights match the windows. Not sure about the alloys, I also prefer the standard ones but if you want it to look more unique then fair enough.


Personally I wouldn't even consider lowering it, I'm no expert but doesn't that just undo all Ford's hard work which made it such a good handling car?

Sorry to jump on your thread.

MattDRx you say yours are rigid?

I find mine have quite a lot of play in them if I hold them and wiggle them back and forth you got me worried now haha.


Mine are a little bit loose like that too, but nothing to worry about I think. They certainly stay put while I'm sat in them. One thing I find annoying is that when you have to move the seats forward and put them back, to get the seat back to click into place I sometimes have to jiggle it a bit. But it would probably click once you sit in it anyway.
