No she would not go near it. Me and my mate got each others trouser bottoms shaking though.

Interestingly, after a spirited drive, we found the complete half the tailgate above the exhaust pipes was dry (indicatoirs to number plate) , while the remainder was wet. We assume the heat from the exhaust gets caught in a vortex by the Touring tailgate and acts like a giant hair dryer! Cute party trick.
