Introducing myself
#1
Hello. I'm BigRoly. I live near London and I drive a 2005 Berlingo Multispace diesel (and so does my brother.) My niece says it's a minging car for old farts. And she's right. That's the appeal. It's functional and has very little street cred, so people can't be bothered to break into it.

Do I have any gripes about it? Yes. The headlight assembly is difficult to get at, and the car isn't really built for tall, fat men such as myself. On very long journeys (down to the south of France for example) I have to stop occasionally for an agony break. I wish the rear windscreen wiper had more than one speed. Because of the biscuit-box shape there's a lot more spray on the rear windscreen than I ever had with a family saloon car.

Still, it's the car that suits me most.Smile

Hi mate, I'm 6ft 1in and about 23 stone and find my Mk1 very comfortable, mind you the furthest I drive in one go is Mitcham in Surrey to Westbay in Dorset, about 150 miles.

gotta say I've never had an issue with the height! And yes, the headlight on the passenger side can be a right bugger to get at, anyway - welcome!

Oh and berlingo's are the last word in cool as we all know Wink
If it aint broke don't fix it... if it is broke, who gives a rats ass?
