Opened my roof yesterday, after golf, to drive to enclosed multi storey car park at local shopping centre. Weather overcast but fine for topless motoring!

Closed roof; for security whilst I shopped; & on my return I opened it again for the drive home.

At this point a kindly person peered at me over the passenger window & suggested I should close it as it was now "raining a bit" outside.

Real understatement: it was P***ing down!!!!!!!!!!!!

So, wasn't confident about the weather forecast, so cleared the garage and cleaned, polished and waxed the Wind under cover. Then, amazingly, the sun did come out in time for a quick drive. Ran really well, though have to confess I'm still not accustomed to the gearing. Great fun, though!

Yes, the gearing on the 1.6 is odd, revs always seem too high in 4th and 5th, to the detriment of fuel consumption. Could do with a 6th gear really for cruising. The 1.2 is better as it has the turbo to boost power rather than using revs.
