Ha ha err doubt it!

It's not to bad on fuel either (for what it is) we went up to Glasgow in it yesterday, £115 to fill (tank not empty though) I drove up there and done it in half a tank! Approx 240 miles. We brimed it again and she drove home and emptyed the tank!! Ha

Just be carefull if you do take the plunge, there's a lot of dogs out there!

Hmm I never really under stood why people would lower a 4x4??
Anyway plans- keep putting fuel in it!! I'm going to give the paint work a good going over as there seems to be a few swirls in it, maybe a re-map but that won't be for a few months yet!
Oh and get the bit of kit that connects the iPhone up to the car! But other than that just going to try and keep it looking good! Wink

Nope the E39 is still rotting in the driveway!
I don't know what to do with it! I don't want to scrap it or break it and I don't really see the point in fixing it and putting it back on the rd as I can just go and buy another one for the same price as to fix it!
I was toying with the idea of fixing the problem with the brakes and tracking it? But we've not really got the room to keep a spare car that can't go on the rd! And how our garden/drive is there's no proper room to work on it either? Decisions decisions........
