    1200 miles down

    Right had the car 18 days and i cant stop driving the damn thing lol im taking the long way to work and just driving non stop , as usual the tools are out on the road wanting / trying to race ( including mr delivery van driver today who thought his van was quick, duly left in my smoke to which i got a gesture back lmao )

    Really really like the car engine will need bedding in more im guessing as computer is showing average 36mpg :| which doesnt bother me, just seems low !

    Downsides:

    bloody annoying screach from the front left i need to sort out,
    not being able to close windows by turning the key in the lock which im suprised this car does not have
    and the biggest problem find a quicker way to remove 7000 dead flies from the front bumper everyday

    And some pic whore shots







    Tom and no Dave you still cannot take it on a track day

    1200 miles in 18 days is pretty good going. Looking good - much better without the oversized vauxhall badge.

    I rekon you seem to enjoy the car sooo much that even picking them off one by one off the bumper would not even pull you off the happy cloud...
