The new car and I are still not getting on any better. I am finding the gears more regularly (especially since I found that the clutch plates SMOKE if I get the wrong gear!!!) but now it is finding new ways to annoy me.

Not contant with a dodgy indicator connection which means the bulb may or may not work…it has now decided that sometimes it won’t even let me turn the key in the ignition. I’ve wiggled the steering wheel, sworn at it, pleaded with it, locked and unlocked it and threatened it with a new home. It still seems to be luck.
