Couldn't have said it better myself!
Funny story, I was struggling to get my 116 to start and it would take AGES to take. Eventually a friend of mine was stuck without a ride for a holiday and needed a car, I offered my GTV and he 1st refused, but in the end he couldn't et another car, not even a rental due to it being December and all. He got in the car, pumped the gas 3 times and she swung and took 1st time boy did I have egg on my face...
Needless to say said friend took 2 extra days to return the car as he "didn't want to" he is currently looking for a 116 or 916 as we speak
