^^^ What? You're borrowing a Cayman for two days and parking it for most of that time, hell's bells I'd be booking two days off and heading for the Hills!

+1. I usually book a day off if I have a Porsche courtesy car to enjoy. Helps to cushion the blow of Porsche servicing costs etc! ;)

Be nice if I had the time to book off. We'd tried to arrange it to be the same day as we're at PEC as I have 2 days off then, sadly my OPC don't have any loan cars that day :roll:

One of the (very few) advantages of being well past pensionable age is no need to book time off :)

To be fair to the Fiesta, it's so easy to drive and park in town, and it's tiny engine means I don't need to worry about finding fuel (even though I was given it with less than a quarter of a tank)! In some ways I prefer driving it in town to the Macan!
It is incredibly basic though - if it was a decent spec it would actually be a fairly decent car.

Handles pretty well too I bet. Anybody that knocks Fords probably hasn't driven one. I've had two Mondeos and a Focus, not a bad word to say about them, a joy to drive, with 3 kids the Mondeo's luggage capacity was akin to the Tardis.

Have you seen how much a decent spec fiesta costs these days...I was shocked!
