Picked up my new Polo today Pinilla I've missed having a car so much. Sob On my way home the car right in front of me gets clattered by a massive lorry at the Hermiston Gait roundabout. Clanger

Does anyone know any big empty spaces (like disused car parks or something) in/around Edinburgh that I can teach Mrs Acey to drive in without worrying about her smashing into things?

the road between ocean terminal and the casino is relatively quiet and a decent spot

my aunt gave me lessons along at granton harbour as there was huge parking lots but I’m not sure how much of that has been built on in the years since

The q2 and q3 are quite small the Q5 is the equivalent of the X3(which I have) I think and it’s very roomy. Depends on what you’re looking to get it for.

I'm looking at both Q3's and Q5's. Not sure what to get. To me they're much the same except the Q5 is slightly bigger. I do like my A4 but she fancies a change so that's my compromise.

My golf gtd has an automatic DSG gearbox,
Had it for a year this month and given the choice I don’t think I will ever choose Manual gearbox over Automatic.

Will be changing at the start of 2021 - thinking Q5 or X3, Q3 just seems a bit on the small side.

Did you buy brand new?

Nah it’s used. Had a wee look at X5’s but they’re just a bit big for me, and the Q2 was too small.

I'm leaning towards the Q5. How old is yours?

The X5 is massive, you need to have cash for them the parts you need to replace fairly regularly.

The Q5 with the new interior is mint but got back too far and it looks a little bit tired.
