There are quite a number of hybrids out over here at the moment, most people seem to be enjoying the Japanese ones though I think Ford have them too in some of their small SUVs. I'm not sure how many have made the transition from the land of $2.10/gallon to 99p/litre though....

Indeed I did. Although it wasn't as a result of the good advice from the linked thread. My only data point is with an Audi dealer in RCOB in March '05, managed to negotiate their maximum allowed on credit cards of 1000 up to 10,000.
