    Yes meeting in the carpark is probably best.

    Sorry about this guys , but it looks unlikely I'm going to be able to make it this Sunday .

    Jan's mother was taken into hospital in the early hours of this morning whilst on holiday in Liverpool - very little info on her condition as yet but Jan is worried sick so we're off down there tonight .

    I feel bad about this as I organised the event , but priorities etc ........

    Glad to hear that. Hope it was nothing too serious and she will soon be on the road to recovery (in a MB of course).

    Dunno who you could mean :p I mean the inside of mine was spotless

    Thanks for letting me have a shot of your car . I now want an I6 E320cdi now. So powerful and smooth.

    Grand day out, shame the organiser didn't make it. I was nice to meet new faces and see the ones from Stirling too.
