Thanks Dave, up here in the north we have mountains where you can be above the clouds sometimes for a change :)

Almost definitely. It's nice to have the badges on so the neighbours know what I drive but as soon as I think they've seen them they're coming off ;)

Must have been waxed by the valeting company, I found some of the chalky stuff in a few areas, and I certainly haven't waxed it myself so they must have. I washed it on Saturday with a 10 year old bottle of "turtle wax: hot wax". That stuff was nasty and it smelt awful but the finished product wasn't bad at all. I won't be using it again I should add... :)

What's the emoticon for outright jealousy!

Anyroad - What you mean about the sun - He's a southerner!

Erm? I most certainly AM NOT a southerner! I am from north Manchester! I only bought a car from the south because I though it needed rescuing from all those southerners! :p

The south is nice to visit, but I wouldn't want to live there. :)

Shude, if us southerners were not so thick skinned we might just get annoyed by a statement like that :p

I agree with you shude , i would not live in the south either.

I only need to drive 5 min to be in the middle of nowhere with not a person in sight ....:D

Ahhh , bliss ....

Much better than being stuck on the tube at rush hour:D
