    I picked up T65 from Currys for £69 with £20 worth of vouchers included. Guess they are knocking them out to make way for the newer models !

    ^ that said, how much do you think it will rise ? If 0.5 % I will end up at 2.5% anyway, so may as well fix ? Chris

    It is an internal wall, thankfully. Hardiebacker or Aqua panel for the wet areas and rest of room. I can't get the green plasterboard in the car though !
