Wow, useful person to know then:bannana:

Do you own one yourself? Or are you happy getting to drive all the ones at work.:p

Which do you prefer MB or BM?? (could be controversial:devil: )

I am in Jersey at the moment.

Seems a lovely place from the little I have seen, but unfortunately I have been working too hard to visit.

From friday my work hours have been 18, 10, 17.5 and I am still going!

Overtime needed to pay insureance!

MBClub viewing has kept me sane and seeing a customers "Jacksons" key tag from his company BMW reminded me.

Work ran on, and we only just got to airport a few minutes after last check-in.


Went past your dealership on the way. Very impressive looking indeed.

Did you see the accident outside, about 5pm?

Hope nobody was hurt, as a Rover 100 (metro) had rear ended a G-Wagon.

The result is obvious. Broken metro, G-Wagon might need a polish.

Back in the MB tomorrow at least. Had to drive a Fiat Stilo to Airport in England which was just terrible and had a Mazda 323 for the return which was at least tolerable.

Arh the good old "rare" Golf Rallye, I've owned one of these in G60 form and also a G60 syncro 3dr Mk2 amongst loads of vdubs. The last Vdub project I did was a G60 in a MK2 Jetta, a real "Q" car.

Did you drop the VR in yourself??

Are you useing the 4 Motion gearbox to mate to the syncro drivetrain??

Just interested as I love the vdub G60 stable....
