Good call, perhaps with some nice built-ins and a movie viewing room.

If my car wasn't paid off, I have a feeling LL would be pressuring me to trade it in now for something more practical, albeit less fun.

sounds like LL will have you in a people mover with multiple child seats before you know it

RE: Désirée is coming to the UK!
the next generation Mondeo aka Fusion, that you have just got in the UK as the Vignale, is apparently a very good thing. Wonder how long it will take the Ford US engineers to stuff it up.Guess that's why Jay Mays moved to London

RE: Désirée is coming to the UK!
I think the Ford US engineers copied it almost perfectly without infringement...

Hasn't actually arrived in Europe yet and it'll be the Mondeo again - Vignale will be an upmarket variation much as Ghia used to be.


It's been delayed so long it'll be due a facelift as soon as it arrives!

The #1 Luxury European Support Vehicle is being readied for Désirée's arrival.

Needless to say it is neither a Mondeo or Miata.

McLaren are overdue a good reason, Mercedes have a strong team and Ferrari have been hiring some useful names. I think Red Bull's dominance is nearly up. In 2004 we wouldn't of predicted the 2005 season, would we?
