    Towing

    Hi there, thinking of buying a 2012 Roomster Greenline 11 with a 1.2 TDi CR engine. I have been told it wont tow the smallest of the Erde trailers that Halfords sells. Is this right????

    I can check until next week but if you could message me the REG number and tell me the rough total weight carried and show me a link to the trailer I will look it up when back at work.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Hello Crasher, I haven't bought one yet. It's just that a 'friend' has been trying to put me off by saying the cars are gutless, they are only zero tax because they've got no power, that it will be quicker for me to get out and walk up hills, and not even to consider towing my tiny little trailer which is only about 2' x 3' in size. It might be a case of the old green-eyed monster as I will be looking for a car younger than his!!!
