    My car

    What a car, so comfortable it's like driving around in your front room sitting on the sofa. It's a relaxing way to travel; I now no longer suffer from road rage!

    In traffic jams it's brilliant at removing the stress of life. It's got seats that massage, heat or cool and a TV.

    Don't buy one new however. Wait two years and it will be half price. I've even seen a one-year-old 6.0 W12 for sale at at £36,000 with 9000 miles. It cost nearly 70,000 12 months previously.

    Great bang for your buck, but only if buying secondhand.
