I drive on the M5 and A38 on a regular basis (live in Plymouth) and completely agree the standard of driving I see on those roads is awful! Probably the only place in the country I see worse driving is the M25
Small Dealerships that try to get rid of you as soon as you show any knowledge about cars.
Went to look at a s3 8p recently, advert said 4 brand new premium tyres, i went there and they were 4 chinese budget tyres that are rated for summer use only! tried to get him to slide on the price a bit...
