I have asked on social media channels, twitter and linkedin and facebook, and even through the youtube channel, the community section. What would you like to see me doing in it and we have our top five things, nearly the top five things, and so we are going to be doing number one, seeing if we had to bring somebody to the airport whats the luggage capacity like and being Across turismo, you would hope it is up there number two im going to do some weekly shopping in my local alley. Number three im going to go and uh go from dunleery about an hours drive south motorway, m11, n11 and uh visit. A friend of mine from college called merch and hes got a food truck section that hes after doing down there in arklow beautiful right there. On the harbour and the boat yard, i think hes calling it so were gon na go visit own um and see whats happening down there, so its gon na give me a bit more time. So today, ive got this car for six hours. It wont be a full review, its more to see about the practicality of it and number four.
Then i am going to bring the dog to the vet uh. Somebody asked about bring the dog to the beach, but i wouldnt do that to this beautiful brand. New porsche tai can 4s crosstarismo and then number five im going to pick up. My godchild and niece from krish so were going to see if we can fit a childs seat into the back of it. So stay tuned its all about practicality, especially the fact that its across durismo um has the space uh. It has that porsche badge, so it has the performance, so lets see what its all about so stay tuned to the end to see if it manages all five things. Music challenge number one is to see if we can fit this luggage in the boot. Simple press button, its gon na be no problem, swallows it up, and we also have a trunk as well. So lets see if that front, that cabin size luggage will fit in the front luggage as well. Front is opened up by a button on the keypad and its got four buttons on an unlock, lock, trunk and boot, and the boot is automated. But when you pop the front it just pops it open, then theres a latch underneath a lot of people will leave the cables in there big substantial case, and this is your standard size, cabin luggage, no problem Music. This is very much an aspirational care for a lot of people, so it would be people very successful in business.
