    I like to think I'm in control when driving so I'll stick to the old-fashioned method...

    Do you know she has a full license but doesn't use it? She's frightened to drive now as it has been so long. I'm at work all week and the car just sits there...

    Get her a 1300cc hire car in Tenerife and ask her to drive up Masca, that will see if she can still drive, especially when 2nd gear pops out.

    Adam, I edited your post by removing the colour you had selected - it seemed you had chosen grey on grey. We can now see that you had something to say and were not in fact just posting blank screens Fly by wire, sorry drive by wire... 506932706
