    Cojak and Mr own it.

    I had an Astra as a replacement hire car - I don't like them. I prefer the tulipty 1 litres I normally hire.

    It's long overdue - these polluting tiny diesel engines must be taken off the road to make more space for my 5.5L V8 petrol

    Oooo touchy.

    I was kidding, though clearly the joke is lost when we're not face to face.

    Am also in a similar position to you BTW.

    Indeed

    So a person drives car x and they are therefore an underachiever

    And person drives car y and therefore they are an over achiever

    But if you then look the person driving car x has plenty of money and a stable life

    The person driving car y struggles to make at ends meet each month and is consistently worrying about money.

    Who is going to be the better person to bring onboard?
