Coming up to 2 years old with close to 660,000 Kms John. I think it has all the hardware fitted ready for driverless, calculates everything by GPS, knows where hills are. the latest Mercedes have no mirrors but use cameras - drivers don't like them in the dark. You can set cruise to max and it adjusts to speed limits, roundabouts etc - you do really only have to steer it

Sounds as luxurious as a new car.
Although I could see how it would be a challenge to stay awake whilst driving it, with nothing much to do.

I also think it's the cause of my back pain. sitting without any lower body movement - unless you stop frequently which isn't often possible, plus finding somewhere safe with a load of bog rolls!! :lol:

Note for Chris - thats lower BODY movement not bowel
