Blind panic probably :'(

At least he's in the left lane ( to him) and not traveling that fast*.

Obviously any speed against the traffic is too fast, but appears to be a result of utter confusion rather than malice... And just goes to show that even normal people freeze up when they find themselves in a situation that they can't quite believe.

The front seat passenger must have been going bananas...

Fortunately nobody was killed.

Foreign Scooby Forrester... Dutch, Swiss or Belgian from size of the front plate :-\

Check lease costs, some good deals about, you may find its less than the BIK hit for many models (don't forget to include tax, insurance etc in the calc).

Take his license away.
Then shoot him.
Then shoot his family.

Looks like a Hyundai .. Terracan maybe? Jimmy....

The same(ish) stretch was at a standstill this morning (northbound, I was going southbound) after another big shunt. Won't be long until it's made "Smart" to stop these kinds of incidents*

*that's sarcasm, btw.

That's all standard motorway, none of the M40 is going smart. M4 is....

Which I'm pretty sure is why it's quicker for me to detour 20 miles across Silverstone and come down the M40 (unsmart) than it is to drive down the M1 (smart)..

Doctor, apologies, I didnt mean to disbelieve or doubt, just my lack of knowledge. Thanks
Nowt to apologise for, it was a pretty blunt reply.

For future reference, Haynes covers the 4 pot 8 and 16v, and 2.5/3.0 including decent wiring diagrams.

The V6 is the same across the board except that 2.6/3.2 are drive by wire: no throttle cable or plug leads: instead a coil pack for each bank; it's all electronic. Also no secondary air injection or exhaust gas recirculation, so less plumbing... But same camcover, cambelt, fuel and cooling systems.

2.2 is effectively a stroked, iirc, 2.0 16v, same heads and gaskets and same layout... Only difference is again that the engine is DBW, so no throttle cable and a coil pack instead of leads.

Drivetrain is identical from '93-'03, as is the basic body shell. Interior trim and body bumpers/cosmetics are all that separate a '98 3.0 from a '00 one :y

The wiring is slightly different on facelift cars, but the later diagrams in Haynes are still accurate enough to get a feel for what's going on.

Between the Maintenance Guides here and Haynes, you can't go too far wrong :y

Check the seal carefully first, but if you can get it, it's probably a good place to start :y

If I was ever going to venture into Shogun etc. territory, I think my only choice would be a Toyota Landcruiser. Not the cheapest, but you you wouldn't lose money on one when you sold it.
