    ...which makes such faffing about a bit silly. Save up and get the proper thing surely, as you are only going to end up with a hybrid bitsa that nobody else will want come re-sale time.

    Obviously not worth it on mine, but got to appreciate the work the OP is putting into this! Not planning on changing my car anytime soon, and don't think i'd get the proper thing anyway, lot of other cars I like and would consider next too.
