Default Isofix

Gents

After several attempts to incorporate a third seat & Isofix into my roadster for the impending arrival, I have failed miserably.

Is it time to look at CR-V's

My recommendation would be a Lamborghini LM002. You get lots of miles to a tank of fuel but that may be because they have 90 gallon tanks. Or something.
Ideal from a safety point of view. Tyres are a bit dear though.
Same engine as a Countach, very tuneable, perfect for doing the shopping as they have a very large boot. You can always find a parking space, other vehicles being in the way cease to be an issue.
You will never lose it in a car park, especially if you paint it bright green / pink / yellow or whatever.
I am sure that they have isofix but can't guarantee anything other than sub 10mpg fuel consumption.
Hope that helps.

Rancho and the Alpine sported the same rattly piece of kak for an engine.
They were a pile of tosh.


What about the Tagora !!!

All the french stuff was a dissapointment.

Imagine the Bagheera or Murena with the Lotus Sunbeam engine

That would have worked nicely.
