I remember I had the same problem when I was 17 (probably everybody had). It's just a paranoia. Once you get used to the dimensions of the car you will be fine, also look below:I got nervous with someone behind me or there was a hill
Just let it roll a little bit. Trust me, it'll roll 30cm max, even on a 1 in 3 hill. And there should be at least a metre between the car behind you and the back of your car.
And generally hills, most people should have common courtesy to give you more space.
L2D is right. No matter how close you think the car behind you is, it is always at least 1 meter. I know it will look closer, but it never is. You let of the brake and you feel like the car is rolling backwards a lot, but it really doesn't move that much.Yeah, people get way too close to you. Last thing I need is to roll back into someone.
That surprises me. I've been able to heel/toe in pretty much every car I've had and my feet are pretty average in size euro 43/UK size 9. Got to take some stuff to the dump in the Honda though later so I'll check that out and let you know but since I use the handbrake most of the time when stopped I don't tend to need to. Parked it gets left in gear so as not the stretch the cable.Most normal cars don't have the pedals positioned for heel and toe. It's impossible to do on mine. Impossible, I tell you!
That's a VAG thing. Can't do it on the Ibiza, Polo or A6, in the 1 Series it works very well. The difference is, the 1 has a standing gas pedal which is the same level as the other two, the VAG cars have a hanging pedal which is a bit behind the other two and quite short, so you miss it with the heel.Most normal cars don't have the pedals positioned for heel and toe. It's impossible to do on mine. Impossible, I tell you!
I'd arguably choose a Skoda over the equivalent VW offering if they had the brand here. The cars all look very nice indeed.Actually how about build a VW but better, stick a Skoda badge on it, sell it for less, pay the VAT for UK buyers, profits still up 87%*.
Skoda, how does that fucking work?
