There’s also no such thing as driving around London anymore, it’s just a case of trying your best to avoid potential accidents all over the place! The standard of driving is shocking. Even with my family in the suburbs, I hate driving around London, so many cars have dents in them and nobody cares. Not a nice place to take the Jag, much too risky now, but has to be done sadly!
Agree yes. When I was there, I used my Range Rover for round town, and the Jag for going out of town.
I often think about insuring my old Corolla (now mum’s) on daily insurance for the times going to London is required. Even that I spent c.£1500 on bodywork to get it good as new though, maybe I look after my cars too much!
