I finally bought a 4×4 yesterday. I’ve been carrying on about getting almost since I first move to England and now, nearly 5 years later, I have done it. For the longest time I’d had my sights set on getting a Land Rover Defender, but when I actually went out looking for one and set in a few, I realised that the Defender matched my image, but didn’t match my lifestyle. I needed something that was compatible with my three lives – Clay the adventurer, Clay the family man, and Clay the business man. I stumbled across the Vauxhall Frontera. Though it’s not rated by the critics, it had the right look and feel for me, so I went for it.
