You've never parked in an underground car park then? The one in the Clarion is very handy for town, and there is never a queue.

I never pay for parking. I abandon my car where ever I want and simply chain my doberman to the bumper, I never get a ticket.

No need to go to that much trouble.



Just take off the windscreen wipers.


Although, I hear that they don't even give you a ticket now anymore.

The dog keeps the clamper at bay aswell. The funny part is that the "dog" is just a midget in a dog suit.

A lot of VWs have been made in Spain as well. I don't know if that's still the case. When I had work done on my Polo, mechanics were frequently pleasantly surprised to find german parts in it, meaning that mine was a german built VW...rather than a spanish one...obviously.

(There are German parts in Mexican built Polos, and Brazilian built VW Foxes.)


I'd say the mechanics were pleasantly surprised when they saw the driver returning to collect her car.
