  1. Didn,t end up with the convertible in the end Dave,selling dealer was very economical with the truth when describing it so a round trip to Weston S Mare on a rainy Saturday ended being a waste of a day, Eventually bought an Individual Stratus Metallic coupe,one owner and full Williams dealer history.
  2. Some interesting cars there,obviously big projects but the 7 series,Merc SEC and Monza all appeal to me,what a sad end to some lovely cars.
  3. I,m really taken with the 6 Dave,Its really surprised me how much i enjoy owning and driving it,just had a big service at my local Indy and Dave the owner was really complimentary about it,i think its definetly a keeper.
  4. Quite agree Dave,i see the Techno Violet 530i in another thread for £9995 also has a broken undertray on the n/s. Both very nice cars though. I,m quite interested in an E38 in Mora metallic on Car and Classics site,similar money to the above cars but a bit more exclusive.
  5. Hope the on the road price includes a wheel refurb and front corner undertrays sorting.

    What are you doing now?

    Just had our last breakfast in St Lucia heading home today, Had a wonderful 2 weeks at The Royalton,St Lucia but ready for home now,missing our Hugo so much, I don,t start back at work until Monday so plenty of time to adjust from 30 odd degrees everyday to the wind and rain of home.

    Its not just Stevenage though,these antics go on all over the country every night of the week,you,ve only got to see the videos on Youtube that get posted, I think the organisers of the meet in Stevenage are trying to distance themselves from these idiots,by saying it was a static car meet with strict warnings against unsociable behaviour. I sometimes used to deliver to Imperial Way,Croydon on a Sunday afternoon where a similar thing used to go on but it was motorbikes and Quads,with literally hundreds of people spectating while the bikes did burnouts and stunts up and down the road,not much fun for me crawling up the road in a 44 tonner with all lights and beacons on while these idiots were flying around me, I believe 2 riders were killed on seperate occasions and eventually the meet up dwindled to nothing.

    Looks stunning Dave,wouldn,t expect anything else though if the V8S is anything to go by.
