in a Ford BMax.
If you have what do you think of them ?

Hubby thinks, sorry, knows that the lack of middle pillar will make getting Mum in and out of the car easier.
I like the look of of the car but have my reserves. Mind the fact that Spain is offering us €2000 to get our old banger off the road makes you think ! ( Our car is a 23yr old boy racer car, we do have a few people want the car but for €2000 I doubt it)

I wouldn´t entertain a Bmax or a brand new car (as in model) normally but do agree with hubby about the body.

So anybody tried one yet ???

Well hubby has gone to have another look at this car taking a Spanish speaking friend (who also happens to be a car nut). They couldn´t test drive (have to make an appointment) but hubby and friend both say it´s the best car for us .....Now why does it have to so ruddy new !

"The horse should pull the cart not push it." - Enzo Ferrarri

The first Anglo-saxon expat in Spain after the Wellesleys was Ernest Hemingway. He had this to say of driving: “Auto racing, bull fighting, and mountain climbing are the only real sports ... all others are games.”

Spain and the B-Max ? Anything is possible I guess.
