I was in the MacArthur Glen car park today in Livingston after taking my daughter to A&E at St Johns Hospital. I had about one half hours left on my parking ticket ( disabled parking you still have to pay) so moving on, I shouted to this man and his wifey excuse me excuse me do you want my ticket as it has one half hours left on it, they thanked me and asked me "do you want the remaining money which is left on your ticket" I felt black a fronted and said NO. Moving on once more, he informed me " that he had been looking at my car ( thank god hubby had washed and hoovered it for me ) I thought strange wee man ? "Oh I said and" "He said its a lovely looking car and started asking me about the Antara. Of course I mentioned the ANTARA OWNERS CLUB through some of the conversation, we got started on about the car being diesel and the DPF, system and that some people have problems and some don't and about short journeys as it's diesel, I said " I just drive it like a normal car and enjoy it" and that I still loved the experience the car gives me"he said " that's for it's size that it was not as bad as his it gutsy git of a car, which was a petrol Ford C Max he only gets 32 miles to the gallon and has problems with it," mmm I said" I let him look inside my lovely clean car compliments to dear hubby He could not believe it had leather seats which were heated, but also he liked the look of the interior, the hight of the driving position and the car boot space, and to to cause controversy he thought the white looked really good ( I like him I said he has good taste hehe ) he also asked if mine was a mobility car, I said sadly no but I explained that last year it was on the mobility list. But then it was taken off, but I was not sure it was due to people moaning about the DPF and that is why it was removed, "he says it changes all the time but he had a year left and thought if the Antara comes back on the mobility list it would be that or the Audi Q3. In white or black, he had tried the Nissan Qashqai and the BMW and did not like them as the drive was rubbish and boot space was poor, but the Audi Q3 was really good no problems with the gears ( which reminds me I did mention some people have problems with the notchy feel of 1st and 2nd in the Antara) he was looking into automatic, he also asked me about the electric hand break, I have no issues with it.
My daughter said I could sell a dead dog and get away with it lol, I told him to come on here and have a look around the forum.
Grumps can I get more points for advertising the Antara Club ( bets on he does not answer me old git ) <img src="http://www.antaraownersclub.com/forum/smileys/smiley36.gif" align="middle" />
