It's been given a full main dealer service and had the exhausts polished and the little scratch on the bumper sorted - off on a 2 hour train journey to Leigh-On-Sea to hand over the rest of the money.

But what crappy weather - snow is a couple of inches thick here in Weybridge, fingers crossed it'll be better at the other end.

Oh, and the wife's making me go to Bluewater on the way back [V] so won't be back until late - will report here on my return [^]

Noticed yesterday that Big Boys Toys is nearby too, so nect time I'll be going there while she goes to Bluewater [:D]

Take care in the snow but more to the point mind where you park in bluewater you know how careless some of these people are when getting in & out of spaces. All the best & enjoy.

What a car [:O]

Only criticism so far is the bloody traffic report thing interrupting everything REALLY LOUDLY - guess I should read the manual tonight!!

Luckily there was no snow in Leigh On Sea, and by the time we go to Bluewater there was none on the roads there either.

Took it pretty easy on the way home as the wife was passengering and she's 6 months pregnant - reset the computer and managed an average MPH of 69.4 and 28.8 MPG - pretty impressed with that.

Just went out again alone and really had a play - "just popping to Halfords to get some screenwash" [:I] - 60 mins later I've tackled a couple of dual carriageways, a chunk of the A3 and some bendy bits - wahey [:D] Must have been one of the few drivers with the windows wound down when it's 2 degrees outside!

Couple of pics taken just after I'd collected the keys...

Its even better with Sat Nav Mark, you have the option of simply recording the annoucements and listening to them as you feel appropriate i.e. the TIM button (top left hand corner) or if you have TMC then you can simply set the Sat Nav to Dynamisation and have your route altered accordingly without ever having to listen to the announcements to mention but a few options[;)]
