probably insurance and mainly fuel economy. My boss has one and if he floors it he has to head for the garage! He'll be there in no time but I have to take a pay cut for him to fill it up. Awesome piece of kit if you do no mileage.

Thanks cookee, it's a shame as I use the 7 seats in my Shogun quite a lot and don't think I could do without them now.

Yes and I'd love one.

But, I do a lot of motorway miles.

So do I, dont worry, once your back is completely buggered it doesnt hurt anymore!
You can change the seats for comfy padded Jag ones though.

Groomie fitted Ford Ka seats in his. Driving it is actually not bad now if you remove your rt arm at the shoulder.

Did he fit them in the back?

My knees were around my ear-oles with the seat all the way back - torture!
