    Literally had 5 folding tables in it yesterday and 2 bits of 2x4 in it today. seats folded down is about the size of a double bed back there (proof, put an inflatable one in there and used it as a bed once :p)

    That's what I wanted to hear :D

    Any plans to modify it at all?

    Having been 'mothballed' back in December, I finally got the old girl back...

    Connected the battery, let it sit for 5 minuets then fired her up. Not bad considering it's sat in a barn for 9 months. (I can sell it as a barn find?).
    Treated he to a full tank of Shell V-Power and been fine, but she'll be playing second fiddle to the Abarth. Forgot how much I loved it's smooth ride and V8 burble.

    On another note, this is the first year since 2011 that I've not bought a car! :O

    May or may not have treated myself to a new car :ytwh: Not sure when it's being delivered, but hopefully sooner rather than later before there are too many 67 plate cars on the road.

    Should look identical to this, will post pics when it arrives.

    Thanks!

    Test drove a fair few vehicles, but the Mercedes always felt the most special to be behind the wheel of even though the interior is a bit old now compared to an Audi A3 for example. That steering wheel just felt & looked the best.

    Will be good to finally drive a car with apple carplay too.

    Love the BMW 2 series on the outside but BMW interiors (other than the new 5/7 series) are just awful aesthetically.

    Probably going to change the boost controller first, internally it's pretty much the same as the high pressure turbo, the LPT just farts out its boost before it does anything interesting. That'll give me about 50 ponies, after that it'll be stiffening the suspension as it's an absolute boat. maybe after i'll lookl at changing the pipes because with a proper kit the red block sounds angry as hell.

    I had a VW Polo Coupe, but that's been scrapped. Then I drove my dads Impreza which my mom now drives and I bought this thing

    Nice one Destroyer! :D That sort of thing is right up my street!

    -

    A few weeks ago I spent a few days on the Isle of Skye, needed time away from it all and its the perfect place, just me, the Abarth and open(twisty) road.

    Having been there many times as a child, it was great to actually drive there myself. :)

    @BAk99 Well that's certainly something. Maybe a bit much in areas for my tastes but hey, you do you man!

    @TIMELESS Nice choice there mate. I like that the colour matches your work uniform.
