    The time has come

    To say good by to the bus.

    Due to the ever increasing costs of covering 20,000miles a year, and the enevitable car tax increase we have decided to get shut of the bus

    So the bus in getting chopped in at the dealers for a Corsa SRI for the wife.
    So i have finally given in and ordered a company car.
    Its not all bad as i have ordered a Saab 93 TTID 180

    I did try to get a new Insignia but the order banks have only just been open for January delivery and i cant wait that long.

    Shame about the Bus but can understand about the increasing costs.

    Saab should be very nice. They make planes you know.

    Thats a real shame mate. But atleast you got a decent replacment

    Is there any money you can make on the bus before it goes? Boost pipes? Silicone pipes? Rear ARB etc? I would swap with you and some dosh your way?

    No that was not me mine is standard,



    GSiJamieShame about the Bus but can understand about the increasing costs.


    Regarding the the running costs it`s not that we cant afford to run it.
    It`s just the fact that i am so pissed of with this goverment srewing us for more and more money.

    All the money i will be saving will be going towards finaly getting my
    Series 1 RS Turbo reso finished which will push out more CO2 than the bus and will be tax exempt soon.

    So Stick that up your ARSE MR Brown !!!!!!!
