    Nice one. I’ll have to take another look, but yes, that could be it.

    EV is out due to my having no off-street parking. Otherwise I'd be going that way. Hybrid would be good, but still out of budget even for a small one.

    Used cars? Help!

    Not bought a used car for long enough for my knowledge of how to spot a banger to be made redundant by the baffling complexity of modern motors. Having just purged my life of the perenially faulty...
