A online magazine reviews the ADF G-wagen... and simply cringes at the ADF spec version.

...just another Driver Instruction Course. This G Wagen was arranged sideways to make a non-tech inspection a simpler affair.

I went on a 10day Driving course out of Singo run by a GRes MP SNCO and thereafter I believe crazy stuff is plausible/commonplace.

Never heard of that magazine before - I guess I now know why - the writer is a goose - hold the weight of the vehicle on the 'P' Park pawl - what is he thinking?

Lol, I know that car!

Whilst the writer is a goose....I agree that the adf G def could have been done better.
