Manual 7.1 Turbo would be quite the find, although I think you can rule out a manual in white, most likely GT Silver.


There's a few out there and one in particular at JZM, has to be white, there will be another somewhere... it's likely to be an 18 month search though

In two minds really, let mine go now rather than sit in the garage over winter, then I take him out for a spin and look at the condition and he's going nowhere Grin

I get my car back tomorrow from OPC after a minor service, weather permitting, we should so a mid week roundabout bang after the dribblers have made it home. Grin

I can;t make this now frustrated

Apparently some giants are coming to Liverpool, they are expecting 1M visitors over the weekend, one of our estates is the main focus on the Saturday afternoon and I’m supposed to be hosting a party there (which people have only just bothered to tell me about Rolling Eyes ) so no chance I can make it nooo

Sorry Gents
I haven't booked lunch as it's been flat out a Club P and it slipped my mind. I'll be making am appearance but need to shoot off for midday.
If there are those who want to stay for the feed, let me know and I'll book it for you.
