Watching our boys in the B&O cars on my Beovision. They are doing well today in Silverstone! An ex-teammate and friend of mine is one of the drivers.

My wife has a very bad back, so we are getting a Citroen C6 from a specialist called Wolsey House Motors in Norfolk. They take 2 weeks to prepare the car, and you pay for it, but it’s common sense in the long run. They even deliver it with only a £500 deposit payed.

If you don’t like the car, they shake your hand and give you your deposit back. Good old fashioned retailing.Yes - thumbs up

 Recently bought a Stelvio in this blue. A fantastic car to drive as it uses mainly aluminium for the body and carbon fibre for the driveshaft. Makes its competitors feel like driving a truck!

I haven’t sat in one yet. We had a look at the Mito a few years back and found it a disappointment. It seemed to have lost its Italian roots and resembled a Toyota! Ended up with a Fiat 500 which is a great retake on that classic car. Unfortunately everyone including the kids have outgrown it.

The Mito was a bad move by Alfa Romeo; a rebodied Grande Punto/Corsa. They won’t be doing that again since they moved upmarket to cover the cost of Alfas only be built in Italy. A bit like B&O sticking to Struer production for everything. Also a bit like B&O is the authenticity of the aluminium gearshift paddles. The Stelvio is more like an Italian equivalent to an X5.

Mmm, very nice indeed! Hydropneumatic suspension in it most sofisticated incarnation with a very stylish and very french body. Your next problem will be finding something that can match it’s ride when it’s time to find a replacement. Congratulations Yes - thumbs up

I was thinking just that on the way home. What would or could replace it?

Got nearly 40 MPG which was better than I expected, and its ride is super comfortable. Love it.Yes - thumbs up

Really? Taking a photo on your phone whilst overtaking at 64 mph?

Hope you fly your planes more safely

You know you’re right, but landing those 60 ton planes at 170 mph onto icy runways in thunderstorms safely, can make raising a phone for nano second in cruise control seem relatively placid.

Apologies to the offended.

I think some sort of air suspension is the only thing that is in the same league. Everything else will just feel like a horse wagon ;-)

The c6 is guaranteed to be a future classic as the last big Citroen since ds entered the market as the psa groups premium brand. A great car but it was too expensive and only 23,400 were produced. I'll be adding one to my collection in the next few years to keep as a classic.

I am currently at the 12 Hours of Sebring race where WEC raced yesterday and the Bang & Olufsen car did quite well. Today we are enjoying the IMSA race where there are currently a few hours left if you can catch it on TV. Great racing.

40 mpg sounds about right to me. I drove a C6 2.7 when it was introduced, back in the days. It was black with a black leather interior. Lovely car. A pretty rare sight today, at least where I live. Hope you get many comfortable miles out of yours. There is one over here that’s covered over 250k miles without any large issues.
