First thing this morning, after only one cup of coffee, I managed to drive my auto BMW all the way to my son's house, a distance of about 4 miles, left foot breaking all the way. I then switched to my manual Hilux pickup, which lives at his house because of parking space issues, drove it round for a while to warm it up, and then took it for its 09:00 MOT, which it passed with only a couple of minor advisories. After this I drove it to our local timber yard, picked up some nice quarter sawn oak, and dropped this at home. I then took the Hilux back to my son's house, picked up the BMW and drove home, left foot breaking all the way. Driving the two different vehicles was completely instinctive, nobody went through any windscreens, and no pedestrians were injured in the course of the mornings events.
