In 2007 I was torn between a Mazda 3 MPS and Civic Type R and test drove them back to back.
The Mazda 3 MPS was in short supply, so to get a test drive you booked with the dealer and Mazda would send a car with a professional driver to the dealer.
So I drove the car out of the dealers on a...
I've looked at that and I couldn't work a way to start the car, without risk damaging the ignition.
However, by removing the button any thief would look at the car and without the button removed would assume it's not a keyless car and walk on to the next victim.
I've had both C200 Petrol with 7G and now 9G. Consumption is almost identical, on a nice A/B Road run I get 40mpg maybe 45mpg on ideal days. Similar on the motorway, but if you go over the motorway speed limit the engine develops a drinking habit and it will drop to 35mpg.

I'm on my 2nd C200 Petrol and the 1st with the 9G box.
The engine is powerful enough for my needs but can be a little noisy under heavy acceleration.
I mainly drive a/b roads on a 30mile commute and will get 40mpg in the summer. On the motorway, you can get up to 45mpg, however, if you drive any...

This time I've setup it up for Connect Me again without any problems and I am now considering paying the extra to access the Vehicle Monitoring functions.
Now one of the lead items on the BBC News this morning.
The Autocar article reads that its only a problem when attempting to start the car repeatedly i.e the car fails to start the first time.
Just wondering if this would also be affected by start/stop starting of the engine?
Booked a hotel in Guildford for the Sat night, before driving down to Goodwood 1st thing Sunday morning.
Hope to get there around 8am.
Anyone got suggestions for the best route or Car Park to aim for?
Google shows using the A286 via Midhurst, or going A283/A285 via Petworth.
