I believe the p6 won an award for design or safety (can't recall which), and it was a classy car to look at (think series one 5-series, and you might be able to see the similarity).

The SD1 was a great car, built with incompetence/apathy and the poorest of materials. My cousin had 2, and they both turned into swimmng pools due to leaks around the rear window/windscreen.

The V8 made a great sound, if lacked outright grunt to match the noise.

BLMC/BL/ARG - 99% of their products snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.


This job should never be complete - the day I think I've done it all, is the day I resign.
