I don’t plan to do this, but …

…it’s nice to know that all of my niggling little questions were answered by the thorough road-test performed by those sterling, serious chaps at the Top Gear offices.
I think I may not bother with the … um.. test in wet conditions. I don’t want to get my mats wet

This is the same model as mine, 1.6 titanium, with the titanium X-pack. (other than Toothless being a nice shade of Silver and not , in fact, metallic-bile-green)
This video may or may not have impcted my decision to buy. Just saying. 

Toothless!

I would like to advise, that for the record, I do not have an overt fondness for cartoons, animated films, or cgi graphics.
Honest.
It is therefore completely a coincidence that awesome-shiny-not-a-stupis-little-car(tm) needed a better, shorter name, and Toothless happened to get drawn out of the hat.

The other choices, should anyone venture an interest, might have been:

  • Gru ( again, coincidental )
  • Sithling ( As if I’d put Jedi on the census . pfft )
  • Uncle Fester ( Lightbulbs in mouth, the fester/fiesta thing… and yet… )
  • Agnes -I direct you to Evidence item A Which ad describes this as awesome. Reminds me of emma the pixie and Sis B also

However, given the utter shininess of my shiny little aquisition, plus the fact that it mostly obeys my vocal whims, earning minion status, and that it had a Start button ( desired since Honda S2000 first seen at the bike show in 1999 ), Then Toothless is adequate.
