Last time I went over the Swindon magic roundabout I don't remember any kerbs - I remember being baffled and just driving pretty much straight over!

Its installed behind the rear centre armrest. Rear seat pasengers pull the arm rest down to reveal the soda stream. There are a selection of flavours, cream soda, ginger alet etc.. my favourite being Dandelion & Burdock. Its my favourite mod at the moment.

I want the mod to remain exclusive so you lot can get lost, I'm not giving any of my mod secrets away. I'm not Longtran!!

Paul, do you have to stick the concentrate into the bottle before 'fizzing' it up, when the carbon dioxide is running low?!

I always did that, even when the cylinder was full- made a great mess all over the place!

No, but I've visited there several times for work and admired the fabulous roundabout.
