I can‘t help thinking that I‘m at least partially responsible

My garage door when I lived in Bicester had a similar adornment.

What a coincidence! It‘s the reason we shouldn‘t turn off our engines at red lights.

I am still impressed how you put the C-V8 in that narrow box every day Felix. 8)

I can really advise everyone in the Forum to go to Zurich, call Felix and experience this show.

The black spots are - well, let‘s face it - vernachlässigbar.

Was fantastic to have you here Jens. The elevator is easy with the C-V8. The Subaru on the other hand has I think 2cm front and back to the sensors which stop the lift. I got stuck between floors last week, that was a bit of an unnerving experience. Come to think of it Jens, the wet trunk on that day was not from washing the car but from a leaking bottle of window cleaner :roll:

Those doors remind me a little of going for the MFK (UK=MOT) test in Zurich. Would be useful putting some headlight alignment marks on the other door!

:D Did you get the MFK at Albisgüetli, with the high speed corner as you emerge from the „tunnel“ at the end of the inspection where they tell you to hold on tight?

It's for that reason, I always park my Jensen with the tailpipes pointing away from the walls.
When I start up, I always have a large pice of black cardboard on the ground at the rear of the car to catch those nasty bits of exhaust mess!
Then I move the car outside ASAP!

Yes! I used to work near there for Credit Suisse, and as a bonus some offices overlooked the "test track". Lorries with trailers were my favourite, although walking past one day I saw an F40, it had just been tested so I missed the fun. The owner was grinning, so I think it passed!
