    I'll throw my cigarette end out of the window that's as far as my littering goes! My passenger foot well is testament to this numerous volvic flavoured water bottles to the point where a passenger can't sit comfortably!

    April onwards is getting worse

    Sorry don't agree why should you pay more if you earn more? That's like saying there should be separate laws for the rich and poor. As already stated above we all know the speed limits it's up to us if we stick to them. If any of us get caught speeding its on our own backs!

    New top gear

    I agree Os But I'm also starting to think Matt Leblanc has got it written into his contract he must win races/challenges. Come on a race to the pub surely Eddie would have won that one easily given the opportunity even in a more underpowered car

    How likely are you to buy an automatic

    I personally prefer manual I found that in my auto I became lazy and to laid back. My attention to the road became less because all I did was stick it in drive and on occasions neutral. I didn't like this! I prefer using my gears to how I want to drive not how the gearbox dictates.
