Worst car experience to date.
The Alfa has gone in for new brakes and MOT. The garage has lent me a Peugeot 206. It is goddamn awful. It's a parasite or the Captain Darling of the car world* it lacks any charisma, a nondescript, nasty little box.
Other than that...
*I make no attempt to apologise to any 206 owners that may be offended.
