Well, didnt actually do much with the car today.. Got the oil changed, but when I drained the old oil I realised I couldn't find the tool for removing oil filters so no filter put in today. On the up side, she is running slightly smoother under bonnet.

Didnt get to change the sway arms due to having to take my son out for a spin so the missus could get an hour to herself.. the kid seems to be in super hyper active mode today lol
I will change them tomorrow maybe.

I took her for a proper run down a few country roads, even with a wobbly front end and no traction control she handled very nicely indeed so happy with that so far

Join the club. I used to love football (back John Barns was a legend!) but today its not about the game anymore, its all about money. The real passion of football is gone compare to what it was 25+ years ago.

Heyup Jimbow how are we mate.

Orbinater, Ill add you along with Shaun (PS3) any others. (yeh i got gt5 acadamy edition and quite far into it now) have 2 m3 beamers (among many) of course!!

and yeh my little girl 2 in Aug and she says (even now after 3 month ownership) daddys car, new one, blue one! bless her. she loves it.
