    My first tank

    My project for Borgward is running to its end. So I have a new ride, whilst my 208 is rusting on the parking. They gave me the new Ssangyong Rexton. Basically it's big. Real big. Not very cool in the narrow streets we often test in. I'm not so sure whether I like it. It's luxurious enough, it's comfortable enough but it rides like a tank. Still got a lot of kilometres to do with her now.

    Definitely not close. We have the 2.2d which is sufficient but not a performance machine. It has all the gadgets, good seats, quality buttons etc. but it's also got some hard plastic panels. It's a lot cheaper for a reason. It depends on your budget really.

    Believe it or not but the car on the pictures has now been shredded into many small pieces. It's been shipped back and destroyed. Our project is done. I added some cool pictures of the car that I couldn't share earlier.

    My next job will be in Germany. Testing the new S-class on a dedicated track for some months.
