I thought it was a lad in a micra who stated he drive everywhere with the back seats folded down to improve handling.

Maybe 15 years back. Maybe from “Barry boys”.

But I’m sure about micra and rear seats:stability

Yes, it was a remark from another website. Cadence clutching, however, is homegrown biglaugh

IIRC they were trying to justify having a higher spec badge than what they have. They listed a few things they did, which were I think to always have it clean, only a tenners worth of Shell Optimax in it, tyres overinflated and folding the rear seats down to reduce weight. Despite a lot of people trying to explain physics he insisted this is what it did.

Did make me wonder whether to take the seats out of my car now I probably won't need them for a while to save a bit of fuel.

Taking the seats out would stop him taking his fat mates in the back that would double the weight of the micra!

Flat floor conversions. No idea why, but seems to be a ‘thing’ now with hot hatch’s.
Blame Dizeee and his Astra VXR for starting this one. You will need a good memory though, it was a long time ago.
The whole lay the seats flat thing?

Was a corsa, iirc
It was first posted on the Corsa Owner's Club forum, but it was a VXR. The thread is long gone unfortunately, it was fantastic.

So who is Dizee now?

I really wish posters couldn't change their names, it's so confusing.
What do you think I am, some sort of Armchair_Expert at tracking people down?

I'd say no, that looks like a spur of the moment thing, when they got home and realised by being married they'd lose all the benefits they were claiming and he'd be responsible for her 8 children by 9 dads the idea went out of the window pretty sharpish.

Mind you men do strange things for a shag, I just hope our hero came to the realisation the xxl Primark portcullis of cloth baring his way to the heavenly yet somewhat worn prize can be opened simply by 10 fags and a bottle of lambrini negating the need for such drastic measures as a proposal.
