Interesting, I have spent the last 6 years in the company of English and
German cars side by side and I still have a soft spot for most of the
English ones. 

I found the single most annoying point was the electricals. Granted I
never had much prob with alternators... just the rest of the system.
Generally the wiring was very sub-standard. I guess the majority of
components were Lucas and naturally the system became known as a
Lucas system.... when most probs were cheap wiring harnesses.
Have you ever seen a Jaguar wiring harness.... unbelievable.
