    My P6 self drove over a small retaining wall today.
    No damage on retrieval by two capable woman towies.
    Lost my exhaust -thats all .And my dignity.
    The pics show the extremes of travel on the dedion rear system

    Glad nobody was hurt.

    It is a bit embarrassing when this sort of thing happens, or you break down in a classic. All I can say is that it happens with moderns too!

    So this explains why moderns cannot touch it in terms of ride comfort. This extend of suspension travel would put most SUVs to shame, no matter ordinary saloons.
    Glad no nobody was hurt through the incident!

    Im into 'the next day" now .
    Had a good sleep and woken up wondering how the hell she released herself well after an hour after being parked at the top of a very steep driveway .
    Steering was locked as the keys were removed . Being sunday , kids are in the street and cars parked along the road side.
    In her movement she missed two letter boxes and the above mentioned before staddling a 400mm high retaining wall.
    So grateful no other scenarios played out.
    A neighbour saw the whole escape and reckons P6 was doing 35km by the time she launched the wall.
    Drove home -very noisy and fumey.
    Off to a mechanic and get her under body checked for damage.
