I think it's important to remember that the bang-on-middle where the N is is ideal, but the areas to both sides are still officially "normal" areas. The final facelifts dropped the whole "N" bar in...

That's probably not a compromise I'd be willing to make, unless it's a really old (fifty years or more) car. A modern car from around 1990 shouldn't be that unreliable. I take my 1992 coupé on road...

AA here in Japan, known as JAF (Japan Automobile Federation) is 4,000 yen a year, 2,000 yen for family members. So for my wife and me, that's 44 quid, 55 USD. They'll only tow for free up to 15 km...
