Yesterday Richard and I had a wonderful day in mid-Wales, inadvertantly travelling down some of the same forest tracks as a rally that was on, and running into more rally cars every time we tried to avoid them. We ended up watching one of the stages at Llyn Brianne reservior which was really enjoyable as the scenery was stunning. It was a pleasure to be there.

On the way out from Llyn Brianne to Llandovery we were followed by one of the chase service vehicles. Not wishing to impede it in any way and with the roads too narrow to let it past (good excuse as any) we had a very exciting 11 mile race back to Llandovery. The wheels were black with brake dust at the end of the eleven miles.

The vehicle we were in has five seats, a big boot, ballistic in-gear acceleration (particularly in third), very firm suspension, carbon fibre trim, cheap to insure and reasonably economical. What is it?

Nope. Try a different manufacturer
Even though this is not a small car it handled like an Escort Mk2, therefore rear wheel drive.

QUOTE ...and reasonably economical.

is that hinting towards a diesel? Or smallish engine?

I reckon it's a diesel - the third gear acceleration that was mentioned.
Some kind of BMW 530 or 330 D ?

Mark.

PS James... I love your signature re: monkeys!! Here's another old one - It's hard to soar like an eagle...when you're surrounded by a bunch of Turkeys!!

Nope, still looking for the magic Manufacturer... and it isn't a diesel. The engine puts out over 100 bhp per litre
