    There was a thread running about it , but i asked for it to be pulled until we had sorted the insurance out , i'll ask Shude if he could re-instate it.

    Basically , i was sitting at a roundabout waiting in line when a punk in a Pug 106 rear ended me at 40 mph , smashed me into the car in front , and that into the car in front of that , and we all ended up on the roundabout ...

    4 cars written off , mine being one of them .

    I see your signature pics is that of a car that was once discussed in "spotted on eBay". The interior pics ring a bell.

    Blimey Howard, that's taken a battering. Hope you and your passengers were/are all ok? Is that Hampton Ct way by any chance?

    The old one was nice - prior to it's 106 encounter, but the new one looks fantastic with that interior - is it Designo or bespoke?
