However Liddington Hil is regarded as the site of the Battle of Mons Badonicus, a victory for the Celts v the Saxons commanded by Arthur.

Possibly commemorated by the mysterious hill figure at Foxhill, last seen in the early 70's.

These things are pretty much the honey badgers of the crustacean world, a metre-wide crab that climbs trees to break a bird's wings and then rip it apart Eek :

The VAG 1.4tsi engine.
Nearly the same 0-6 as a mk 3 (90's) Golf GTI. With more torque, better fuel efficiency...in a family car. Some witchcraft means it pulls most at 1.5K-3K revs.

We aren't talking about superfast, but compared to the Avensis its a rocket.

Discovering Waze +  Spotify + phoneholder = pretty decent in car satnav and music through the speakers.

(yeah, no Satnav)

Whenever I see VAG written it makes me chuckle more than a school kid probably.
Isn't that the one which is twin charged so the supercharger cuts out around the 3k revs mark?

no, single turbo but you still want to be changing up around 4. still learning to drive it, it's the inverse of my previous car where over 3.5 was the only way to get torque.

VAG, hehehe. If the Queen had one it would be her Maj's VAG..
