diesel cars are everywhere. Seems like half the cars.

VW Scirocco, GTD too.

Were you in Knightsbridge by any chance by Harrod's? There's an IG account I follow where the dude always hangs out there and shoots exotics all day.

I was there on business, so I didn't do any touristy stuff.

But I would think so, depending on your interests.

Unfourtunately, there are far more poor people with zero driving skills.

Pardon the arrogance, but after 45 (of 45) years of driving accident free and insurance claim free, my insurance premiums must be paying for all those losers on the road.

You just quoted a post made 8 years ago to make a pointless asinine assertion. Way to go!

Defensive much. I frequently get stuck behind the asshole in the BMW or Corolla going 30 in a 50 because they're texting how traffic is terrible.
