    How very dare they, the car I was intending to buy has been sold, but no worries I've found another in a better colour, dark metallic grey.

    American sports cars had a system like that - it was called a "Lakes Pipe".

    ('Little Duce Coupe . . . Hear the Lakes Pipe roar . . ').

    Now, that is a lovely thing! :text-bravo:sir!

    (I do like Metallic Grey cars - had 5 or 6 over the past years. Though nowadays my kids are quick to point out that it's probably because they match my hair! :icon-evil:)

    You can make that argument about almost anything these days not just vehicles.....and yes, we're all influenced by brands and marketing, to some degree or other.

    For example Seat/Skoda/VW/Audi/Porsche/Bentley/Lamborghini/Bugatti are all owned by VAG. In the world of watches, Blancpain, Breguet, Hamilton, Longines, Omega, Rado, Tissot and Swatch (plus quite a few others) are all owned by the Swatch group.

    I'm not a marketing guru, so don't know all the terminology but these companies have established and developed their brands and products with a target market in mind - so you're not going to see a £100k "Skoda" 911 or a £10k "Tissot" Fifty Fathoms in the showrooms soon.

    I suppose you pays your money and takes your choice :thumbup:

    I went for a test drive this afternoon, fell in love, and I'm now the proud owner of a Jaguar, until I can move the Cruiser to get a garage space the jag had been put into storage. :dance:

    You don't hang about Chas! :thumbup: :clap:

    Let's hope you get a buyer for the Cruiser soon - I know you'll be sad to see her go but just think of all the fun and new adventures you'll have in the Jag! :dance:
