It's not quite as grand as it sounds but believe me, you wouldn't want to drive yourself around and/or find somewhere to park in this crazy city.
What I meant to say was that, at LHR, I do the same things you say you do at LHR - i.e., rental car unless the meeting's in the city when it's either Paddington Express or the tube. Sorry if my post was confusing. BTW, I use 1car1 for car rentals at LHR - they are cheap, and quite nice people.
