I bet your mittens were joined by a string fed through the sleeves so you would not lose them!Can you still buy duffle coats? I remember having one as my winter coat when I was very little. Hood-up, and teamed with wooly mittens and a balaclava on Bonfire Night. I was too young to know any better. Honest!
Never owned a bum bag in my life, but seriously considering one for when I'm cycling to put my phone and keys in.
I have one of those tiny bags that fits below the saddle, but that just about fits a few tools in.
I think every time Audi update a model it becomes uglier. The present range with their huge grilles are just horrible imho, and BMW seem to be going the same way. A friend has an Audi A6 estate (largely because their enormous dog won't fit in much else) and at night the interior is like being at a funfair there are so many lights, indicators, etc in several different colours. His wife had a Mini (the BMW version) diesel which ended up being scrapped at ten years old because the necessary fix would have been more than the car was worth. I'm not sure of the fault but I think it was in the EGR/DPF or something.I don't think the German cars are as bad as the picked statistics suggest. Nonetheless, it looks like if it is a horror to look at, it will be what is termed unreliable. So many of these car are just ugly. What has happened to taste?
Somewhere (possibly here on AO) someone posted an interior shot of the new/current(?) S-Class taxi ... how anyone might hope to actually notice what is happening on the road around them is a bloody mystery to me. Mercedes are not alone per @cue2 's comment and others.Vorsprung durch technic suggests progress but I think before vorsprunging they should prove their ability to do what they are currently doing. I’m not convinced. Not just style but the substance. They are so busy in their own german car world they’ve lost sight of whether nightclub lighting is actually suitable for a car interior.
T'was I. I got the thread closed because someone turned it into an anti-cycling rant, bizarrely.Somewhere (possibly here on AO) someone posted an interior shot of the new/current(?)

But most of us here are apparently of another era, one where function more or less managed to maintain a little distance over form/flash.
