With a new c-max on order, the time is really dragging! Theoretically only 2 weeks to go until it is delivered and Im bizzarely looking forward to it coming - which is odd seeing as its the most boring car Ive ever owned!

Any top tips on what to fill the next 2 weeks with?

Ha ha - I admire your point of view, but while its a nice drive can you really describe them as exciting either visually, performance or segment-wise?!

That reminds me that I need to get a structural surveyor in to look at my saggy bay window - the glamour eh!

It does beg the question....why did you get it?

Segment of the market was what I meant - mini-MPV just doesnt really thrill me.

As to why I got one - practical reasons (which are seldom exciting). Its definitely the best of all thoseI test drove, but as a bit of a former girl racer I guess Im having to grow up!

Did you not see pics of my one with stripes, large alloys, and a subwoofer system? As I said.....it's as boring as you want it to me. I'm not saying you're going to go and beat a 700hp skyline off the mark but it's hardly like driving a van than does 0-60 in days....

No, but Id love to - sounds like my first non old-banger, a fab little renault 5 which my then-bf (a mad modder), did up for me. From then on I was hooked!

I totally agree its far less boring that than the competition though, I briefly had a black and white striped ST which was when i decided that Ford were actually rather good

The ultimate mad mod is to try to squeeze the 2.5 Volvo engine under the bonnet
