On the other hand, I was really intrigued by the HUD in the car, when we got it I tried it for couple of weeks, and found it was doing my head in, distracting and almost stressful. I switched it off and it was a physical sense of relief.
(Edit: all of these were "excessive" features in the almost new car we got The previous owner ordered top spec which we wouldn't have done due to lack of funds, but as he returned the car with few miles on it the price became affordable and we bought it)

Treasure the moments that you have. Savour them for as long as you can for they will never come back again.
Well some sort of kit car, or maybe one of these -
Never mind, you haven't spoilt my enjoyment of the thread you started-----if a few MSE threads attracted so many fun replies it would be a good thing. I fully accept that MSE deals with mainly with people who are struggling in these awful economic times---and it helps so many of them with good advice. But surely all posts do not have to be about so many of our citizens who are scandalously living in poverty. Some can bend the MSE rules ----just like your original post did ?
But, as you have singled me out to admonish for not following the rule you set ( instead of sending a post to the forumite who posted pic of an old car), I will give you an answer which may result in you giving me a higher grade in my exam : the first time I ever bought a PC and found that by hitting the touch pad the whole keyboard was lit up, enabling me to type without having to put room lamps on or scrabble for a torch. Since then I have come to see it as a shining light in a dull techno world (pun intended)-----and jolly useful.
Hoping I am back in the spirit of this fun site and that you are pleased with me
An Ariel Atom is one of my dream cars. Unfortunately they really aren't that cheap and the waiting list is years for a new one. I imagine for this reason they hold their value really well and used cars are similar prices to new, or sometimes even more expensive.
It was the no doors or windscreen that got me thinking, first one in my head was an Atom.
I wish the Tesla had a HUD, the screen is above the centre console and I find it totally distracting.
