    PD'S TOP TIP NUMBEEEEEEEEER ONE !!!!



    To enable you to back your car in the garage safely and at ease, park it up as per normal, slowly and taking extra care to get it as close to the back wall as possible. Once done, attach something to a piece of string (I used some rolled up tinfoil, took 4 seconds). Then work out the height required to hang the string from the roof of the garage so the end touches your windscreen. Leave it there, and any future reversings in and out of the garage can be measured when the object makes contact with the rear windscreen. No more cagey backings in, and hesitant movements.

    This top tip was supplied top you by P_D, who averaged 25 miles to the gallon today.

    But for those of us lacking Blue Peter skills....completely 'cagey' free, downright reckless, fast backings in can also be achieved by ticking the box that says 'rear parking distance sensors' when ordering motor :wink:
