    After 4 years, a new car!

    My wife surprised me today by taking me to a car dealership near London (a good 2.5 hours away from our house!). Waiting in the forecourt was a Europa blue cabriolet turbo with 48k miles from new. Anyway, after a test drive and a little haggle, I am its new owner

    Picking up the car on Friday next week and I can't wait. Should be a small step up from my current 1.4 LS

    Any suggestions as to good modifications? I'm transferring my airbox mods from my existing car and the new car will otherwise be completely standard.

    Thanks guys. Pics will be posted when I collect it on Friday - there are some on the web but they're not great tbh.

    dazparki - not sure if it was on ebay. Sounds about right though!

    A quick picture - taken with my camera phone when I was at the dealers so excuse the quality! More pics will be posted when I get the car on Friday.
