Out With The Old And In With The New

Hmm I was quite sad to see the old work horse go but after months of hub looking and commenting on new motors I caved in.

So bye bye Subaru Forester.


And hello to Renault Megane.



This beauty has a funny card that you put in it to be able to press the start button to get the engine going. Drives so quietly, except over/in potholes. But the brakes, OMG, I almost put myself through the windscreen. Got to get used to those. Not too sure of the leather interior though, I think I am going to get some seat covers.
I drove it home at lunch time with the roof down but, oh my, it was 35 (almost 100) and even with the air con blasting I ws sweating. So I will stick to the roof down on 20'ish days.

Very cute car! We've had our convertible for about 3 years now and we really enjoy it. I too have to keep the top up on super hot days though, I don't like having the sweaty thing going on!
